INTRODUCING PACIFIC RAILS

Where the art of distillation meets the essence of Northern California's finest grapes and vintners' tradition. Nestled between Northern California wine regions, our distillery seamlessly blends the worlds of distilling and winemaking to create an unparalleled experience for bourbon, whiskey, vodka, and gin enthusiasts.

The name Pacific Rails celebrates the storied legacy of the railroad lines that once interconnected the nation, knitting communities together and igniting a spirit of discovery. It reflects the historic exchange of goods, with wine from California’s world-class vintners reaching the major cities in the East, and whiskey being delivered to frontiersmen and gold miners in the West. Similarly, our distillery serves as a nexus of innovation, merging time-honored distillation practices with cutting-edge methods to produce outstanding spirits, all while honoring California’s deep-rooted vintner heritage.

CRAFTSMANSHIP IN EVERY DROP

At Pacific Rails, we believe that the foundation of great spirits lies in the quality of ingredients. Our vodka and gin begin with a carefully selected blend of Northern California grapes and rye grain, resulting in a smooth and refined distillate. Our bourbon and rye whiskeys are all finished in hand selected California Cabernet wine casks to captivate the palates of whiskey lovers. This commitment to excellence is the backbone of our spirits, ensuring a premium experience with every sip.

WHISKEY AGED TO PERFECTION

The crown jewels of our collection are our four-year-aged bourbon and rye whiskeys, a testament to patience and precision. Not swaying from tradition, we ferment, copper pot distill and age in New American Oak. Then we source the finest Northern California Cabernet cask to finish our whiskey, imparting a complexity and depth of flavor that sets them apart. Each bottle tells a story of the journey from grain to glass, capturing the essence of the region in every drop.

GRAPE & GRAIN VODKA/GIN

Our vodka and gin showcase the true essence of the region's agricultural bounty. The grape and grain distillate provides a unique base, imparting a distinct character to each spirit. Whether you're sipping our clean and crisp vodka or enjoying the botanical infusion of our gin, you'll taste the craftsmanship that defines Pacific Rail.
