The family is one of the early pioneers in the modern American artisan distillery movement. We began distilling in California in 1983 with Alambic Pot Still Brandy and haven’t stopped since. Our lineup includes whiskeys distilled from bottle-ready beer, brandies distilled from Napa Valley grapes, vodkas flavored with 100% real fruit or tea and rum distilled from sugar cane syrup.
Our family also makes wines, ports and aperitifs – using brandy they distill in their Alambic Pot Still (check out www.charbaywinery.com).
Marko is Generation XIII to carry on the family’s European heritage of fermenting & distilling. It’s hard to find someone with a more genuine love of the art form, grounded in solid experience. His 25-year apprenticeship covered every category of distilling. Only when he’d sourced, distilled and taken to market his very own spirit, his father said he’d earned the right to be called a Master Distiller.
This family is hands on and it shows in the quality of everything they bottle. Their sincerity is appreciated by writers and consumers alike. Robert Plotkin, a present day authority, said: “No one family in the history of our great Union has contributed more to the welfare and general happiness of her citizens.”
