Crafted in collaboration with the ocean

Jettywave is a distillery experience that embraces the modern northern California coastal life. We embrace souls who prefer to pedal beach cruisers or paddle across blue water here to the harbor to savor 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.

Savor why Sunset Magazine named our Coastal Gin ‘Best of the Best’, Double Gold and ‘a 98 point stunner.’ And Sunset’s judges haven’t set palette on our forthcoming  Jetty Barrel Bourbon. Sadly they must wait until next November’s awards sample. Please join us in celebrating the first California bourbon that will upstage Kentucky’s finest with its extraordinary softness, a rare maritime terroir only noted in the finest Islay Scotch Whiskeys and a small barrel aging that balances the brine coastal influence with a hint of salted caramel and almonds.


An adventure in micro-distillation

We are offering our take on a fresh new al fresco drinking experience at The Swell Lounge @ Jettywave. Years of scribbled recipes in our kitchens deserved a second chance at our healthy-ish bar. We wanted to extend our creative welcome to Jettywave friends from far and wide to join us here in the historic Princeton Harbor and there is no such thing as foggy weather
- just bad clothing.

Can drinking be like carbon credits? We believe so. Drink our Even Keel Turmeric shot the night before your next blood test and let us know how much your liver enzymes improve. We apply our degrees in sustainable agriculture and grow much of what we pour and distill. We gather fresh sage from our garden, dill and fresh flower petals to complete some of our favorite drink. That kumquat is being dehydrated for that floating garnish and, yes that cilantro leaf just came from that planter over there.    

Drinking with benefits. No really.

Our Coastside’s most beloved restaurant, like many of us, followed its Silicon Valley dream only to return home to HMB. Cafe Gibraltar is back with its Mediterranean-inspired small plates, and has elected to joined us here at Jettywave. We could not be more honored. Or sated. Or downright giddy. Taste how old-world secrets, rare heirloom spices, farm fresh ingredients, and Jose Luis' renowned imagination conspire to redefine what your favorite tapas taste like.


Gibraltar Gems Jettywave is run by Executive Chef Jose Luis, who has scoured the planet to delight your appetite curiosity. Watch closely for Gibraltar's mezze platters, unusual tapas, seasonal soups, and special guest menu appearances. Together we craft surprising pairings to explore your outer palette.

Spend time in the historic Princeton Harbor before you toast the sunset at Jettywave. Cross your treasure map off with the seal bed, the ghost pier, the bat rays, the leopard sharks and the native salmon. Some of our recommendations are Thai Cod Curry at OPL, celebrity surfer sighting at the boat launch, poke at Sams, rent a paddleboard from Doug at HMB Kayak Company, and count the stars in the tidepools on the most negative of tides.
