We start with our Signature Vodka and then add our hand selected natural spices and botanicals to create a beautiful bouquet of aromas and flavors. First thing you will notice is a light Juniper Berry nose, take your first sip and sink into a wonderful world of Cardamom, Coriander, Cloves, Cinnamon, Orris Root and Lavender mixed in with a nice light Orange and Lemon zest flavor and aroma. This is not your Dads Gin. This is a full cocktail in a bottle just waiting to be poured over rocks or mixed with your favorite tonic or even hot!
Pairing: Plays well against the briny sweetness of a classic shrimp cocktail, chilled seafood platter or grilled prawns
Located in Buellton California in the heart of the Beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Barbara wine country, DorWood Distillery is a true soil to sip, hands on family owned and operated distillery making each batch small and hand crafted the old world way. Everything we do is handmade and made onsite.
Using only the finest natural material sourced as close to home as possible,
DorWood uses these ingredients to make truly Sophisticated Spirits. We distill everything on site and we only use the Hearts and discard the Heads and Tails for a purer cleaner smoother tasting spirit. We make products that can stand on their own. Neat, on the rocks. No cocktail mix is needed with our lineup. We want you to enjoy the products taste, not buried in a sugary cocktail mix. But if you do want to elevate your cocktails to another level, then please mix away.
Jay has been distilling since 2014. He has been involved over the years in Construction and Development, Music Industry, Athletic Clubs, Physical Therapy Company. Loving and drinking Tequila for years, when Jays brother Jeff called and ask him what he thought about opening up a distillery he jumped at the idea and started literally the next morning. Missing the ability to use the creative forces from previous business’s, this gave Jay that chance to start creating again. And he has not look back since. Always looking to make his products as good and as smooth as possible. The best compliment one can have is when a customer comes back for seconds and more.
