Malahat Spirits Tour and Tastings

  • 8706 Production Avenue San Diego, CA, 92121 United States (map)

Malahat Spirits is offering an exclusive private distillery tour from the founders, 6 unique handcrafted Malahat spirit tastings, and cocktails to San Diego Cornell Alumni for only $30 (one of the founders is a proud Cornellian!).  This event is limited to the first 60 people, and if last year is any indication, it will sell out!  
So if you're looking for a fun and unique date night or just the chance to meet new people and learn about spirits, sign up quickly.

Malahat Spirits selects extraordinary ingredients, combined with traditional techniques with an infusion of innovation and experimentation, to handcraft the finest spirits.  They utilize a two copper pot still system where the large dual column copper pot still distills the spirits and a smaller “experimental” copper still designed for research and development small batches to create innovative recipes. 

The Malahat itself was a five masted schooner that sailed down the West Coast during Prohibition.  Capable of carrying over 60,000 cases of spirits, she delivered more contraband liquor than any other ship in the Pacific, ensuring Southern California rumrunners had ample spirits for awaiting patrons.

Formal presentation by the owners 7-7:30pm.

Open bar with 6 Spirit Tasting, Cocktails and light appetizers included
