Craft distillery Pacific Coast Spirits strikes gold

Pacific Coast Spirits, award-winning craft distillery & kitchen, is accumulating an impressive award collection, giving them a lot to celebrate at their 4th Anniversary Party this weekend.

Pacific Coast Spirits, independently owned handmade, small batch craft spirits, recently announced that their California Blue Corn Whiskey won Gold Medal and Best of Category at the ADI 2022 International Spirits Competition — their fifth gold medal this year in conjunction with other awards.

Fittingly, PCS celebrates their four years in Oceanside at their anniversary party on Saturday, Dec. 10, and is inviting all to join the celebration. Pacific Coast Spirits coined the term “grain-to-glass,” meaning every step of their distillation process is forged at their Oceanside distillery and uses only high quality, raw ingredients.

They do not buy and blend, add coloring or chill filter their whiskeys. Making their whiskeys, bourbons, gins, brandies and agave spirits top notch.

Other 2022 Awards:

  • Double Gold Medal- California American Single Malt at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition
  • Gold Medal- California Bourbon at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition
  • Gold Medal- Triticale Bourbon at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition
  • Gold Medal- Golden Sunset Barrel Rested Gin at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition

“We only strive for excellence at PCS,” says founder and head distiller Nicholas Hammond. “We are really excited to celebrate all that we have achieved this year.” Pacific Coast Spirits California Blue Corn Whiskey is made with 100% organic and non-GMO California blue corn varieties and is aged in for 4½ years in their American Oak Char #3 Barrels. Its creamy texture, sweet dough like aroma and butterscotch taste gives a balance of complexity worthy of gold.”

You can find California Blue Corn Whiskey and other craft spirits at their distillery & kitchen located at 404 South Coast Highway, Oceanside, CA 92054.
