Celebrating Manufacturing Day with Maker Walk LA

We jumped at the chance to help celebrate Manufacturing Day in LA this year. We work closely with all our maker neighbors and love any opportunity to support our community.

We opened our doors on October 6 to give locals a free mini tour and taste. They learned how we created our signature style: deep yet mellow flavor – just like California. They also tasted some of our favorite organic spirits: SLOW HAND Six Woods Whiskey and GRAND POPPY Amaro. Like all our spirits, the inspiration for both drinks came from the City of Angels.

We also served up delicious craft cocktails at the VIP party. This was our chance to let our hair down and relax while doing what we do best: serving drinks and talking about our city.  Pairing up with Califia Farms — another local LA brand — made putting together fresh juice-driven cocktails easy.
