Our Story
At Cutwater we are dauntless spirits. Whiskey, Vodka, Gin, Rum, Liqueur, mixers, canned cocktails and beyond. We’re always focused on the horizon, the road ahead. We’re just hardwired that way. Armed with some heavy experience, hard earned awards and boundless energy, we’re charging ahead to carve out our place in the global spirits industry. And we invite all who share our passion to join us on the journey. In 2016 our band of liquid pioneers began building one of the West Coast’s largest new distilleries. What started as an off shoot of Ballast Point Brewing back in 2008, is now a completely separate company, facility, and product line. Our new home is a 50,000 square foot world class production facility in San Diego where our distillers can tap into their curiosity and creativity, build on tradition, all the while with their minds wide open to the unconventional. The Cutwater crew is committed to bringing quality, ingenuity and integrity to the world of spirits.

And as a venue connected to our production facility, you and can also tour our distillery, explore the spirits process, and meet our team to share some warm Southern California hospitality. We are open for lunch and dinner Monday-Sunday from 11am to 11pm. Seating is first come, first served. We offer complimentary tours of our 30,000ft production facility on the hour from 12pm to 7pm.
