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.
