10 years ago Rodney "Rod: Cegelski, a California surfer, met Hamish "Hammer" Marshall, and aussie jackaroo, spurring a friendship rooted in an appreciation of quality spirits and the central coast. The two founded Rod & Hammer's Slo Stills to share their passion with friends and family.
Slow Stills Great things take time... Our spirited adventure began in 1988 at our brewery, Slo brew, crafting award winning beers for over three decades. in 2012 we distilled and aged our first whiskey, a rye beer mash made in the original garden street copper kettle.
A fire sparked within us to craft exceptional spirits culminating in the establishment of Rod & Hammer's Slo Stills in 2019.
