If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Tour and Taste at Sonoma County Distillery

Submitted by on April 29, 2017 – 8:53 amNo Comment

Sonoma County Distillery CompanyRoad Trips Foodies who find themselves in northern California wine country — but who prefer distilled spirits — now have an alternative tipple.

Founded in 2010 as the Golden State’s first whiskey-only distillery, the Sonoma County Distilling Company, 5625 State Farm Drive, Unit 18, Rohnert Park, California, is now open to the public for tastings and sales.

The distillery claims a “grain to glass” philosophy. From the milling, mashing, and fermentation of grains, to direct-fired copper alembic pot distillation, to American oak barrel aging, bottling, and labeling, every level of production is handled in house. The goal is to create a new legacy, one that is steeped in traditional values but fueled by modern taste.

Sonoma County Distilling Company is open for tastings and sales from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday. Tours are by appointment at 2 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tours are $20 per person, and include a tasting of six whiskeys and a souvenir logo Glencairn whiskey glass.

If rye is your favorite, you might want to know that the distillery’s Straight Rye Whiskey Cask Strength took home a gold medal and the Best of Class – Whiskey award from the American Craft Spirits Association’s annual convention and award ceremony in February 2017. The ACSA is a nonprofit trade association representing the U.S. craft spirits industry.
