Dead of Night Distillery
Dead of Night Distillery may be small, but our spirits are big and bold.
Dead of Night Distillery is an independent craft distillery located on the southern edge of the burgeoning Los Angeles Arts District. Our plan started out simple…to create a brand of spirits that we would be proud to share with our friends and family. Through hard work and dedication, the plan became a reality. Today, Dead of Night offers you the highest quality spirits that bring forth unique flavors of California fruits, botanicals and spices. Each spirit is crafted to be savored on its own or paired with complementary liqueurs and mixers. We only use the finest local ingredients and raw materials to ensure exceptional quality.
Our spirits are crafted to capture the diversity and uniqueness of Los Angeles as a community. The unique flavors of our Eastsider and Westsider Gins reflect the culture, ethos and vibe of LA’s vibrant regional communities. Eastsider brings out an earthy and edgy flavor that echos the artistic and character rich communities close to and east of downtown LA. Juniper, Angelica root and fruit peels stand out in both the bouquet and flavor. Westsider brings out the taste and smells of the coastal air and native plants, with juniper, pink peppercorn and basil as the leading flavors, then complemented by key lime, mint and a hint of vanilla.
Our Calicitra Vodka is pure California citrus, with a subtle flavor combinations that comes from local California Meyer lemon, grapefruit and sumo citrus, all picked at the peak of freshness. The grapefruit provides the initial tanginess to the spirit, with the sweeter lemon and sumo citrus providing a refreshing, light finish that creates the perfect expression of California sunshine.
Our Silver Rum uses only organic sugar and molasses and is double distilled for richness. Lastly, our Aquavit follows the traditional Scandinavian tradition of bringing caraway, dill and fennel flavors together to produce a smooth spirit, perfect for after dinner, or as a flavorful replacement for vodka in a Bloody Mary.
We always wanted to build a company that gave back to the community that supports it. As a small artisan distillery, Dead of Night Distillery believes in supporting similar small and local businesses is at the heart of what we do. We always source as many ingredients from local farmers markets that ensure only the freshest of ingredients. We also repurposed the distillery during the height of the pandemic to create hand sanitizer to support local hospitals and retailers.
Our spirits may be local, but our spirit is widespread across the community. We hope you enjoy our offerings as much as we do.
