About us

Our Why is Simple

Like the historical icons who inspire us, we prefer to challenge rules, norms, categories and restrictions. Our team is known to push limits and take on challenges when others won’t.

What we do.

We put a new twist on an old classic. Combining techniques that are tried and proven (but not often implemented by mass distillers because they may not be the most “economical or time efficient”) with fresh and unique flavors. We invest in the small things that make the biggest difference to create the highest quality and taste.

Our Team

Led with grit, and a track record to prove it.

Matt Eau Claire


Meet the man with an insatiable passion for great-tasting spirits and enough grit to take on something as bold as starting the first distillery in a highly conservative county. 
Matt has spent 20+ years traveling the world in search of the most unique tastes and distilling techniques. This deep interest combined with 25 years of business experience gave him the idea to set out and do what he truly loves: creating the best-tasting premium liquors not just for himself, but for everyone in search of something defiantly different. 

“We’re a distillery that colors outside the lines; our fearless innovation crafts incredible taste without being confined by standard categories.” --Matt Eau Claire

Give Back With Every Bottle

We’ve always known we want to be more than just a company that distills liquor. We want to create an engaged community that fosters awareness for things larger than themselves. In honor of the historical figures who inspire our liquors, we’re giving back to organizations that support human rights and preserve nature. A portion of sales from every bottle goes back into the hands of responsible non-profit organizations that help such causes.
