The world’s largest coast redwood by volume, the 320-feet tall, 26 feet in diameter Lost Monarch can be found in the Grove of Titans, a legendary stand of ancient conifers in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. Here, amid lush ferns and densely matted epiphytes, Lost Monarch reigns over some of the world’s largest trees.
A WHISKEY WITH ROOTS
Redwood Empire is more than a cool name, its our home and a source of inspiration. With John Muir as our guide, protecting our environment has become our mantra. We have built sustainability into everything we do.
Our still allows us to distill in a single pass, preserving both water and energy. Local farmers use our nutrient rich mash as feed for livestock. And our state of the art water reclamation facility assures only pure water re-enters our water table.
Redwood Empire Whiskey is not just a product of its environment, it’s a part of it.
Our distillery is in the heart of the Russian River Valley wine region. It was carved out of the buildings originally housing an apple canning and processing plant owned by the Hallberg family, one of the area’s preeminent families during “West County’s” apple production heyday. The Hallbergs were known for producing a wide variety of apple products, mainly under the Redwood Empire label. Today, the facility and the climate make this the ideal place to make great whiskey, with plenty of relics on site to remind us of our ties to a rich agricultural history.
TREES FOR THE FUTURE PARTNERSHIP
Living and working among the redwoods is a constant reminder of what trees do for our planet’s environment and climate. We have partnered with Trees For The Future, an NGO responsible for planting over 189 million trees since 1989. It’s important to us and our consumers.

Dark Amber color with a slightly orange cast
Complex, with clove, cinnamon, vanilla, orange citrus zest and butterscotch notes, and an intriguing hint of sandalwood.
Sweetness from corn and spiciness from rye combine with an almost maple syrup like flavor. Vanilla and caramel notes lead to a persistent, yet subdued peppery finish.
