Honest, Authentic, and Transparent Distilling
RE:FIND Distillery is crafting artisan spirits from grape/grain to bottle in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. Proprietors/Distillers, Alex & Monica Villicana, believe in transparency in their distilling practices and the authenticity of the ingredients distilled. In doing so, what was once a conversation about how many times a spirit is distilled and filtered is now a discussion on the quality of both the ingredients and fermentation, and what each brings to the final product.
Re:Find only uses natural ingredients and stands tall among craft distillers by being committed to crafting their spirits from fermentation to bottle. From growing some of the raw materials themselves, to sourcing from organic farms, to fermenting, distilling, aging, and hand bottling, Alex & Monica do it all!
RE:FIND Distillery was derived from the Villicana's desire to be more sustainable in their winery (Villicana Winery). Re:Find Distillery was founded on the concept of using the prized saignée (free-run juice) that boutique wineries begrudgingly discard during the winemaking process, fermenting it, and distilling it. This practice allows Re:Find to reclaim approximately 60-acres of premium Paso Robles wine grapes each year through their distillery. That's a lot of water, fuel, and manpower being repurposed into a premium spirit.
RE:FIND Distillery firmly believes in honest, authentic, and transparent distilling practices. RE:FIND is dedicated to working with California family farmers, artisan brewers, and boutique vintners to obtain and highlight their labor of love by crafting it into well-balanced, full flavored spirits with lots of layering and a distinct finish. Starting with high quality, unprocessed, seasonally sourced, natural ingredients and paying close attention to our stills we are able to bottle our spirits unfiltered. After all, if the spirits are derived from high quality materials, go through a clean fermentation, and use only the ethyl alcohol, they shouldn't have to be filtered!
