INSPIRED BY FRESH INGREDIENTS, BORN IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
In 2002, they began making their vodka in Alameda out of an old World War II aircraft hangar - a real piece of California history. Hangar 1 is made one batch at a time, using rigorous distillation methods and the best ingredients that nature has to offer. Fine grapes are blended with Midwestern grains to create an exquisitely smooth vodka with a slightly fruity note.
One of a handful of female distillers to lead operations for a major American spirit brand, Caley Shoemaker immerses herself in every aspect of the production process, from the sourcing of raw ingredients to distillation and bottling. Caley describes herself as a “spirits nerd” and is fascinated by how the chemistry of distilling affects the quality, texture and flavor of the final product. She is endlessly inspired by the area’s abundant seasonal ingredients.
