Crafted in collaboration with the ocean

Jettywave is a distillery experience that embraces the modern northern California coastal life. We wanted to find a path to ride our beach cruisers here to the harbor to create unexpected flavors with organic integrity in the wild pourings we distill and concoct. We welcome only those friendly, to drink responsibly, and healthfully with us in Half Moon Bay's Princeton Harbor.

An adventure in micro-distillation

We bonded with our head distiller Anthony Marinese over a shared vision of crafting flavors the world has never experienced. Our partners have multiple degrees in sustainable agriculture and design. We shop the back alleys of The Bay Area to find flavors to pique our exquisite cocktails, and enhanced spirits and bourbons with hope for a tilted-head-grin every single taste.

An adventure in micro-distillation


Distillations from a Prohibition era safe harbor

We just installed our first of three stills and mash-tun we are incorporating here at Jettywave Distillery. We will 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 distillery will be almost entirely plastic-free.


Half Moon Bay’s Princeton Jetty is the energy center of our Coastside community. Everyone slows pace for this only stretch of highway that flirts with the sea for twenty miles in either direction. Visiting beachgoers get their first glimpse of waveriders, and local citizens hand salute familiar faces smiling from cars with HMB windowstickers. A most welcome way for all to enjoy this rocky little strand.


Jettywave means...


Explore your outer palette

Perhaps the first thing that bonded us all was a love of weird recipes. We’d hover around whoever’s kitchen and quiz the chef. We all came to understand the search for the perfect receipe but never forget to kiss with a surprising twist. This spirit is the basis for our wild flavors. We ground our creativity with a firm attempt to weave organic suppliers whenever possible, and that we partner with suppliers more lcoal than afar.
