Wine country just got a little more spirited! Located in Buellton and neighbor to great brews at Figueroa Mountain, you can now find great booze! Ascendant Spirits invites you to come discover the fascinating world of spirits in Santa Barbara County’s very own craft distillery – the very first one since prohibition!
Take a tour of the distillery with a super knowledgeable guide, oooohhh & awe at the shiny copper still, inhale the smell of aging bourbon in barrels, and follow it up with a taste of Ascendant’s very own bourbon or (and?) vodka. Made with American grains (which they hope to source from local farmer’s in the future), yeast, and reverse osmosis water made on-site, these spirits will make your taste buds soar. We’re already getting excited for their local Caviar Lime gin aimed to appear in cocktails about town come summer time.
Keep an eye out for their boozy libations to hit select local bars and stores very soon. They’re sure to lift your mood and get you in good spirits!
Open for tours and tastings on Friday (4 – 8pm) and Saturday and Sunday (11am – 6pm).
