There we were, on the dock, drink in hand, when inspiration struck: Our first smoked rum…but not just any smoked rum. Each batch is hand smoked creating an distinct balance of burnt cherries and sweet molasses.
The story of our beginning, is not one of destiny, but one of innovation and self-motivation. Co-founders Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall, started the Cerberus Craft Distillery with the Dark Door Spirits Brand and one simple goal in mind: to create a damn good product. Marshall and Allen realized they had authentic ideas, and the ability, conviction and means to make those ideas a reality.
The Spirit of IPA was our first spirit to hit the market in the summer of 2016. Later, we soon found our niche which is creating unexpectedly delicious spirits for those who desire something outside the industry norms.
Since its beginning, the world of distilled spirits has often been restricted to the status quo, enforcing industry standards that were developed years ago.
While we will never sacrifice excellence for the sake of something new, we will always continue to challenge ourselves to find excellent new flavors that lead to a wonderfully, unexpected drinking experience.

I’ve been in the hospitality industry my whole life and that’s given me plenty of amazing opportunities, especially the ability to make a damn good drink. Personally I enjoy the creativity I can have and can utilize in my position. My favorite cocktail is a Whiskey served Neat.
