Howard and Marni Witkin didn’t realize they’d be going into the liquor business. They just thought they were sharing a delicious homemade drink with friends. Their founder started making homemade liqueurs in their kitchen and the result was fantastic. Sweet, clear, fruity, floral and powerful. They poured it for dinner guests, who became hooked too. Soon, a few bottles grew to dozens and they had local stores asking to carry their liqueurs.
By the time they caught their breath, Howard and Marni had an operating distilled spirits plant, pallets of liquor, gold medals, industry recognition, and two of the best liqueurs on the market. But with a taste mistress who’s a whiskey girl at heart, they started dreaming about a whiskey to call their own. Within just a few years, the sipping whiskey that emerged is something unique and incredible. Flavor is all about aroma, and running a distillery is really about how to use raw high proof alcohol to pull the aromas and flavors out of some really cool stuff.
Using all natural ingredients, they make every bottle by hand in their little beach town distilled spirits plant. Never GMO. Never Industrial. CALI Distillery is truly excited to bring their family of natural handcrafted spirits to your family.
