Hanson of Sonoma Distillery
Our vision of organic, grape-based, gluten-free and non-GMO vodka is the embodiment of Hanson of Sonoma. We are family owned & operated with tasting rooms in both Sonoma & Sausalito.
Simple. Because grapes make better vodka. To make vodka out of grapes, you first have to make wine. There’s a reason no one else is doing this – it’s not easy. We believe in taking risks, and fortunately this one paid off. Our vodka made from organic grapes turned out to taste better than any we’d had before, and with that, we felt we had found our place in the craft spirits market. We’re pretty proud of our unique process and the vodka it produces, and sincerely hope you enjoy what we do. We hand-peel organic produce for our infused vodkas because we like to drink real vodka. No artificial flavorings, added sugars, or fake anything. We love supporting the farmers in our community who work incredibly hard to create a quality product – just like we do.
WE HAVE RECENTLY RELEASED OUR OWN AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
Hanson of Sonoma Distillery starts with four distinct malted barleys, imparting notes of caramel, biscuit, and chocolate. The whiskey is aged for four years in bourbon barrels, adding a rich and balanced blend of soft vanilla and sweet barley. Adhering to Japanese whiskey finishing techniques, Hanson Whiskey is then cask-finished in a variety of different barrels, including Spanish Oloroso sherry casks. These sherry barrels, which have been aging wine for years, impart a sweet, subtle flavor to the whiskey.
WE ARE ALSO MAKING HAND SANITIZER
We decided to fire up our stills and create a hand sanitizer using our organic grape based spirits. Following the Center for Disease Control formula we made a 70% alcohol by volume hospital grade Hand Sanitizer. We have the tools so we are using them.
