Adam Spiegel was born and raised in San Francisco. From a young age he experienced the bounty that Sonoma County offers through regular visits to the area with his parents to it's beaches, attending concerts and tagging along on wine tastings.
In 2008 he found his passion for creating spirits while assisting a distiller friend in Santa Rosa and soon realized that there could be more to whiskey. Sonoma Distilling Company was founded in 2010 as one of the first 200 distilleries in the United States.
“While working with great Master Distillers and Blenders over the years, I’ve honed my skills to continually raise the bar with each new product and batch. There are no “Masters” here per say; we’re just regular people striving every day to better themselves and their craft. I like to say we’re making whiskeys in a small way for a big world."
