The Spirit Guild
The Spirit Guild in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles has been open about a year now. They do tours Wednesday through Sunday. Tours are currently $10 which you get a $5 off coupon towards a bottle purchase. The tour lasts about 45 minutes.
Astral Pacific Gin
I really liked the Astral Pacific Gin which is made with clementines from one of the owner’s family farm.
The Spirit Guild – stills
All those shiny stills…so beautiful.
enjoying the drinks
I was at the distillery for a special meeting so we had some cocktails with the spirits. I enjoyed the Astral Pacific gin in a Negroni (top photo).
Like the gin, the vodka, Vapid Vodka, is also distilled from clementines. I think this gives it a little extra something.
There are a few other distilleries in the Arts District. I’ll be posting about the others soon! Is the new bar crawl a distillery crawl?
