Griffo Distillery

Releasing a crisp, complex gin in late fall of 2014 and a rye and bourbon in 2015/2016.

We take immense pride in the products we have crafted. Hand distilled and bottled in house. Locally sourced and locally based in beautiful Petaluma, CA, in the heart of Sonoma County.

All spirits are distilled in our 240 gallon American made copper pot still. We make booze just the way we like it. We hope you like it, too.

Michael takes great pride in the craft he has honed in distilling. His approach relies heavily on the knowledge and discoveries of countless incredible distillers that have paved the way.

However, Michael applies his own unique touch throughout the process. A touch that he perfected in his PhD in physics research at University of California, Santa Cruz and in his post-doc.

He distills through formal analysis and fabrication of his own innovative still controls -- controls that bring out the balanced botanical flavors in Griffo Distillery's Scott Street Gin and achieve a perfectly crafted whiskey.

He's been known to exclaim with love as the spirit drips out of the still, "Now that's just beautiful."
