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. He fondly recalls trips to its 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 RosaSonoma 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 se; we’re just regular people striving every day to better ourselves and our craft. I like to say we’re making whiskeys in a small way for a big world."
