30A Distilling’s spirits are made with regionally sourced ingredients. Their initial product lineup includes Blue Mountain Beach Bourbon, Seacrest Community Rum and Seagrove Community Vodka, all available at its Santa Rosa Beach tasting room.
“We’ve chased sunsets all around the world and have never found a slice of paradise quite like this place we call home,” said 30A Distilling Founder Brian Rabon. “Our colorful and laidback community embraces living well, kicking back and escaping the ordinary — what better way to do that than with a quality drink in hand?”

“As pristine as the west end spot it’s named for, our Blue Mountain Beach Bourbon gets back to the basics,” says Rabon. “Blue Mountain Beach shines neat, on the rocks, or as the base of your favorite cocktail. We start by distilling a blend of corn, malted barley, and rye, and then age to perfection for at least 4 years. Once cracked from the barrels, we blend it with pure water — and that’s it. No flavor additives or coloring, just genuine Bourbon.”
“Seagrove Community Vodka is best enjoyed with your favorite mixer under the shade of historic live oaks found throughout the area. Produced from Louisiana cane sugar and distilled pure, we then filter our vodka sparkling clear. Smooth with a light natural sweetness, Seagrove’s aroma features lemongrass and tastes of rock candy. Seacrest Community Rum is inspired by the friends and memories we’ve made there. Made with Louisiana cane sugar and molasses, this clean rum smells of ripe banana and honey with notes of stone fruit.”
