LEFT COAST BOURBON
We are currently producing using three stills and mash-tun we installed here at Jettywave Distillery. We have one 150-gallon stripping still, one 26-gallon copper pot still for finishing whiskies, bourbons and Half Moon Shine, and one 26-gallon column still for finishing gins and vodkas. Our stills are all hand-forged in Colorado. We love MileHi Stills American-made copper and stainless metalworks, which plays into our hopes of buying as locally as possible. With an all-metal distillation and redwood fermentation, our distiller will be almost entirely plastic-free.
Distillations from a Prohibition era safe harbor
Jetty Barrel Small Batch Bourbon was the spirit we fantasized about crafting before ‘Jettywave’ was even trademarked. If you’ve seen the barrel tasting smiles emerging from our test lab, you understand why we’ve been jonesing to share this special spirit with you. With a California mashbill of 80% Woodland sweet corn, 20% malted barley and Little Yosemite Valley water, it is far more relaxed and laid back than transplants from Kentucky or Scotland. Zero harsh. All light. A true craft whiskey, Jetty Barrel Bourbon is different in myriad left coast ways. We craft the entire distillation process in our harbor distillery, from hand-made redwood tanks, to slow state fog fermentation, to small volume casking.

Fog fermented bourbon
Our first distillate reinvigorates a Prohibition Era tradition once distilled under the secrecy of moonlight. We shed new light with our own grain-to-bottle recipe. Organic corn and barley, sourced here in northern California, is open-fermented over five foggy days to slowly capture the essence of the grain in reclaimed redwood fermenters, a process we call ‘fog fermentation.’ Half of our Half Moon Shine is placed in new oak barrels to mature into our forthcoming Jetty Barrel Bourbon. The other half is an elegant unbarrel-aged sipping whiskey. Unlike its Appalachian origins, Half Moon Shine is delicate and smooth and is intended to savor mildly chilled or enjoyed in a Moonshine Sour or your favorite cocktail.

‘Double Gold,’ ‘Best Gin’ and ‘Best of the Best”… this is the legendary gin Sunset Magazine placed above all other entries in its 2022 International Spirits Competition. We bring a west coast vigor to this staid Anglo-Saxon spirit. Distilled from organic American corn. Blessed by California botanicals. Juniper berry and pistachio mash is complemented by thyme, coriander seed, cardamom, ginger root, black pepper, meyer lemon, shiso, & our garden’s own nasturtium blossoms.
