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.

 

We want to showcase the beauty and bounty of Sonoma County in every step of the whiskey making process.

Stout Barreled Whiskey

Inspired by our brewery friends, this whiskey blurs the lines. Organic corn offers the classic bourbon nutty sweetness while roasted malts craft the beloved coffee, chocolate stout profile. This decadent whiskey is aged in new American Oak barrels then finished in used stout beer barrels from our friends at Lagunitas Brewery.

"A rich—almost decadent—pour. Our Stout Barreled Whiskey offers notes of fresh fig, caramel, coffee bean and chocolate. It has a long, evolving finish that ends in espresso and chocolate with a hint of tobacco."

-Michael Griffo, Co-Founder & Head Distiller

Stony Point Whiskey

Great spirits come from great ingredients. We mill organic corn and rye directly into our kettle and keep the grains in through distillation. This crafts a soft and nutty, corn palate with a spicy rye finish. We then age the whiskey in local barrels with both American and French oak to tune the curve and balance the spirit. 

"Stony Point stands out from many new, young whiskeys. This whiskey is fresh and grain-forward, with its corn and cereal notes allowed to shine but that lovely rye spice coming through on the finish.”

-Virginia Miller (The Perfect Spot), SF Bay Area food and drink writer/editor.


Our whiskeys are 100% grain-to-glass.

Quality, freshness and locality are at the forefront of our minds as we craft our whiskey.

We distill and age our whiskeys in our bonded rickhouse in brand new, locally coopered, charred barrels. We hand-select our grains from the best local farmers and hand-mill them on site. All whiskey is distilled through our 250-gallon, custom-made copper pot still named Betty. Every single drop of water that is used in our process is collected and given to local farmers. We love our community!
