Definitely worth a stop. See the distilling process followed by a tasting. Informative and fun! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Check out the music barrels.

Thank you for the review! We are glad you had a great time on our tour. The next music barrel should make an appearance later this year or early 2019! Keep an eye out for the release. Cheers, Amanda

Did not know there was a distillery there. Just happened to park in the lot and saw it. They have a wheat whiskey that was delicious an which we purchased.

Located in the Barlow district, this distillery has some unique offerings. Be sure to try the sloe gin and barrel- aged sloe gin. They far superior to the sticky, red stuff! And the staff is very knowledgable and friendly!

If you're on the hunt for some high end liquor then this is your place. The innkeeper at Inn at Occidental referred my boyfriend Brian and I to Spirit Works. I'm not much of a drinker but he enjoys a small glass of whiskey at the end of his day.

This place wasn't hard to find, it's straight back behind Taylor Maid Farms which is a very cool coffee shop (I recommend going in there too). So when Brian and I walked in we were pleased with the layout, atmosphere, and most notably the service. He got to try about 5 different tastings for around $18. As I mentioned, I'm not a drinker but the aroma of the different gins, vodka, and whiskey smelled really nice. We got to learn about how they make their products and we found out that they give tours as well. Everything they do for their business is done right there. If you're willing to hang out there for a while you can help them bottle the liquor, although I'm sure they have strict guidelines for days and hours but it sounds like fun! Brian and I will definitely visit Spirit Works again.

Spirit Works is located in the Barlow complex. It offers tastings and tours of its very small but interesting distillery. You can try vodka, gin, sloe gin, aged gin and aged sloe gin. They will shortly add rye and malt whisky. The fee for the tasting and the knowledge of the staff are a plus.

We were all very impressed by the quality and flavour of their spirits. If all gin was like theirs, I would be a convert!

You currently cannot buy direct from them ( this should change during 2015) but there is a liquor store within walking distance that carries their very reasonably priced products.

Enjoy

Having visited this amazing distillery I have had my eyes opened to a whole new world of flavours. The tasting room was fabulous. Their Sloe gin is simply the best I have ever tasted anywhere in the world and this is a must visit for anyone coming to the Bay area. Thank you Spirit works...

We had a great time at Spirit Works. Kayla was our server and educator on all things At Spirit Works. She made our experience so much more enjoyable. The four of us enjoyed the special cocktail and 3 tasting option. 2 of us had whiskey cocktails and tastings the 3rd person had gin cocktail and tastings. The fourth was a designated driver we had some other stops before this one. The venue is small but holds a lot of people. The atmosphere is great everyone is having a fun and the ladies behind the bar worked well with each other and the customers. Make this a stop as you wind down your day. The tastings were appropriate but definitely get the cocktail!! Enjoy!!!

Scheduled a tour online (super easy) for a group of 4. Very cool to learn about the process for making vodka, gin, whiskey and other spirits. Finished it off with a great tasting at the bar. Highly recommend this if you're in The Barlow or passing through Sebastopol. Great way to spend an hour.
