Beyond Wine: Sonoma County’s Best Craft Spirits Tasting Rooms

The land of the grape continues to be a hotbed for craft spirits. Here's where to taste Sonoma-made vodka, gin, whiskey and more.

Though Sonoma’s spirits industry started small — very small — more than a decade ago, the openings of several gin, vodka, and whiskey tasting rooms from Petaluma to Healdsburg are claiming a larger share of attention for distillers in Wine Country.

These craft distilleries are making their mark on the industry with foraged botanicals, organic and non-GMO ingredients, and a sense of terroir that rivals any local wine.

We’ve sussed out some of our favorites, all of which have tasting rooms and are owned by local families — whom you’re likely to find right behind the bar.
