Loch & Union Distilling - Craft Spirit Gin Distillers, Hero Image

Loch & Union Distilling Co. is a young craft spirit distillery located in California’s Bay Area that is setting the world of gin on fire. All our spirits are made from scratch from grain to glass in our own custom made copper stills. In just a few short years we’ve already gathered dozens of awards for our custom blended gins.

Loch & Union Distilling was co-founded by Master Distiller Colin Baker and Director of Business Operations Matthew Meyer. Baker learned the art and science of distilling at the world famous Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Today, they offer American Dry Gin, their grain to glass Barley Gin, and a few secret projects they are working on.

Custom Made Spirits Crafted in Napa Valley, California

Gin has many styles and variations and every distiller has their own way of doing things, like Grandma who swears by her apple pie. We’ve taken inspiration from the classics and made them our own.

American Dry Gin – A Classic Dry Gin

This is our take on a classic dry gin, with an American twist. Starting with a neutral grain spirit base, we combine twelve botanicals to create a clean, balanced spirit layered with complexity. The traditional evergreen backbone from the juniper leads into warming spice, floral and citrus notes all in perfect harmony. Learn more.

Barley Gin – From Grain to Glass

We craft our Barley Gin entirely from grain to glass, starting with a mash of 100% malted barley. We then distill the mash in a similar way to our single malt whisky and use that as the base for the gin rather than neutral spirits. Red fruit and butterscotch notes from the un-aged malt spirit meld with the piney and deeply warming flavors of the botanicals to create a spirit that will challenge your previous notions of what a gin can be.

As you can see by the size of the custom made CARL stills made in Germany Loch & Union has big plans.
