OUR STORY

 

Every story has a beginning, and for Hinterhaus Distilling that origin predates the distillery's opening in 2020. Husband and wife team Nate and Bonnie Randall lived across the country throughout their lives. When they discovered the small town of Arnold tucked into the California Sierra Nevada they knew it was where they wanted to carve a life for themselves. They embraced their diverse skills and experiences to reimagine their lives in the hearty landscape and contribute to their surroundings, founding Hinterhaus and creating a spirit lineup that reflected the Sierra's 'terroir' in the process.

Operating as a family distillery, Hinterhaus shines a spotlight on the bounty of the region that has attracted generations to this rugged landscape. Whether it's vodka, gin and liqueurs that are distilled from Northern California wines, bourbon whiskeys aged at more than 4000ft above sea level and finished in a variety of local wine casks, or small batch American single malt whiskeys distilled from grains that are sustainably grown on family farms, great care goes into every spirit produced at Hinterhaus.

 

We invite you to explore our offerings by visiting our distillery. While you're at it, enjoy a cocktail or full-flight tasting in our cozy Alpine-inspired lounge
