Refined Craft Distillery with Unique Facets that SHINE
Jun 2021 • Couples
I am entranced. Vodka is smooth and creamy, the agave spirits are crisp and nectar-y. Those are my least favorites. The gin... The gin is magic. And the limoncello is the antithesis of all of the crap you've had by the shot. It's freshly zested and lemony and the essence of the Italian summer.

Great tasting experience!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed the tasting experience. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable, not only about the tastings but also gave us some pointers about the area. We bought some Gin. It had a unique flavor and was very smooth. Definitely recommend it as a quick and fun thing to do.

A hidden gem and "must visit"!
Apr 2021
DorWood Distillery is about a mile in from the 101 and is the perfect little craft place to visit if you enjoy distilleries and the art of making spirits! If you have questions before visiting Jay responds pretty quickly to make sure your visit will go smoothly when you arrive.
Parking is decent, even for full size trucks, and there are tables outside as well as in to enjoy your tasting experience. Jay is the owner and runs the show. He is great to talk to and readily shares anything you want to know about his products. How it is made, where the agave is sourced from, anything. He has flights and tastings and his spirits have a great, unique flavor to them. He was out of some of the whiskey at the time we visited so I only left with a bottle of Gin, Vodka and Tequila. If you are staying anywhere in Buellton or Solvang and are looking for something to do or somewhere to go you have to stop here! He has great plans for post-COVID and I look forward to returning and buying more online from him!

Great little distillery!
Aug 2019
Ok, I'm not a big hard liquor drinker, but I enjoy seeing how things are made and figured my wife and I and another couple might enjoy a distillery tasting. We checked out Dorwood and were greeted by the owner. He was very personable and poured us six of his current products, including Vodka, Whiskey, Gin, Agave and a couple types of Limoncello. All were tasty, but my friend and I (our wives don't drink the hard stuff) agreed that the Vodka, which is actually made from wine, was the best. We even bought a bottle! Afterwards, the owner took us on a tour and explained the whole process of distilling. It was a really fun way to spend about an hour and a half!

No Hangover?...I’m in!
Jan 2019 • Couples
These guys are innovative, fun to be around, and they have some pretty nice spirits to boot! The owner of Bella Cavalli has a stake in this place also. His brother, Jay, is quite the host and co-owner at Dorwood. He is very knowledgeable about the process of spirit making and the tasting room is right there in the distillery, so you can see and if you’re lucky “smell” the process in action! Try all the spirits, because they are all great. Oh yeah, one other great thing (according to my better half)...no nasty hangover after drinking the DorWood spirits. Try the whiskey...very smooth!

Educational and fun stop our day out of wine tastings
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had previously visited two wineries and was recommended we stop by this place for a new adventure. Jay, the owner, introduced us to wine based vodka. I really enjoyed it as well as the Limoncello. Jay was also nice enough to let us taste his brandy which was still being developed.
A great stop so glad we did.

Limencello is AMAZING!
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I were looking for something to do before our dinner reservation. There are many tasting rooms, but I’m not a big beer or wine fan, so when I saw this distillery, I got excited. I wasnt disappointed! This place is a hidden gem. Highly recommend stopping in and give Jay a high five from us.

A Unique and EnjoyableTasting
Jun 2018
They have a nice selection of spirits with unique flavors and notes. Definitely worth checking out. And if you have a non spirit person in the group there are wine tastings attached to the surrounding buildings.

Great tastings, great host!
Jan 2018 • Couples
Stopped in here because I love Limoncello and my husband loves single malt whisky. We enjoyed tastings of both and more. Jay was generous with his time and the pours. Bought a bottle of each. Will be back next time we are in the area. Loved that he streamed KPIG radio in to the tasting room!
