About

We are a family owned business located on the Pacific coast, just south of San Francisco, CA.  Head distiller, Jason Tripp, masterfully distills the finest organic ingredients in our hand-made, 220 gallon still, which runs about half the speed of traditional pot stills.

This slower speed allows for more chemical interaction between copper and alcohol molecules and, along with the cool coastal air, temperature and humidity profiles are comparable to Scotland, allowing our barrels to mature the spirits gracefully.

Tripp Distillery is open to the public for tastings and fun events every Friday-Sunday. They are very pet-friendly and those who bring their dogs receive a free shot!

The distillery is also available to host your next event any day from Monday-Friday. They are a very unique venue where groups can help distill whiskey on-site. Guests are also able to tour the facilities and learn about the distilling process.

Our products include:

Pacifica Vodka - "Double Gold", "Best In Class" winner of the 2018 California Craft Spirits Competition, Pacifica Vodka was inspired by an early form of Vodka called “Starka” that originated in eastern Europe during the 1500s. Oak barrels were filled, then buried at the birth of a child so the end spirit would be smooth and complex when served at the child’s wedding. Tripp Distillery uses a far less time intensive version of the Starka process. The short time spent in the oak barrel allows the Vodka to mellow without modern machines, while still maintaining a neutral flavor profile.

Pacifica Rum - Pacifica rum is aged in our coastal facility in Northern California where the cold waters of the Pacific create barrel temperatures comparable to the conditions in Scotland. It's a slow process, but one worth the wait. Our rum is bottled at cask strength. This allows the spirit to capture all the complexity derived from the combination of our organic ingredients, copper still, oak barrels, and low temperature, spirit maturation process.

Pacifica Gin - Pacifica Gin begins its life as rum kept in French oak barrels from Napa just long enough for the chemical reactions between oxygen, carbon and alcohol to soften the youthful nature of the spirit. Once mellowed, the rum is filtered through the coconut shells and re-distilled with a mix of English and California botanicals in our copper Scotch Whiskey Still.
