When Kill Devil started operations in 2011 they were the first licensed distillery in the city of San Diego since Prohibition. Currently they’re producing four different spirits including their Valor West Coast gin, which won them a gold medal at this year’s Distilled spirits competition at the Del Mar Fair. Leave it to a SoCal distillery to produce liquor that almost sounds healthy. Not only is Valor organic, but it’s also made with gin botanicals grown in-house, PH-balanced alkaline water from a local artisanal well, Cali-grown grapefruit, and, keeping true to San Diego, there are Chinook hops in the recipe. Kill Devil is also responsible for RX vodka, the first unfiltered vodka made in California since Prohibition. Ugly California Rise & Shine is their caffeinated moonshine born from a collaboration with local favorite Dark Horse Coffee Roasters. It’s made with premium Brazilian coffee beans and gives imbibers a whole new way to get their buzz on. You can visit their distillery and even customize your experience. Choose the Local, Tourist, or Celebrity package, the latter of which allows you to tour the distillery VIP style with hosted live music, luxury transportation, and other perks.
