Had a month in Santa Ynez Valley to escape the desert and sample some of the
culinary/wine scene.....what a great surprise to find a real deal distillery with a wise
old master mixologist/distiller. Great smoooooth unadulterated spirits at crazy fair prices for the quality in a great setting with legacy stories; very very creative....try Jay's "BEES KNEES" or "MOONHATTAN"!!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Been to a few spirit tastings and this place is fabulous. Jay was great. Friendly and so much knowledge this man has. Not only do you get to taste, you also learn the art of spirit making.

In a word "smooth", Brothers Spirits is a small distillery making some very good spirits. The grape based vodka is fantastic, the Agave (teguila) is very good but I must say the Limoncello is my favorite. The owners provides outstanding customer service, they educate you on the distilling process and have created a cool little venue to hang out in to taste the spirits or enjoy one of their amazing cocktails.

I have visited the location several times and have brought several friends and family members to sample the spirits. they have all agreed, it can be summed up in one word, "smooth!"
