Craft Distilling

“It’s not about drinking … it’s about the experience of savoring the subtle flavors created in small-batch craft distilling. It’s about learning how this ancient craft uses locally sourced ingredients and returns waste products back to local farms.”

Distilleries have a symbiotic relationship with local wineries and breweries, as wines can be distilled into brandy, and beers can be distilled into whiskey, and barrels can be used interchangeably to enhance the flavors of any of the three products.

At Oakhurst Spirits we are happy to provide our guests with another amazing reason for Yosemite visitors to stop and stay in Oakhurst. We offer free tours of the distillery, and guests are invited to purchase a tasting of craft products, served in 1/4 oz pours.

You may also purchase your favorite to take home with you.

Our Passion

After years of living in the corporate world with 40+ years experience in business, as owners of WebbShade, a manufacturing business near San Diego they felt it was time for a change of pace.

They had been coming to Yosemite for years and loved the peace and tranquility of the mountains. Mike is a retired USN Chief Petty Officer, and is a member of the American Distilling Institute, and the California Artisinal Distillers Guild.

The Benbrooks believe in sourcing all their supplies from local businesses, and have been active as donors to local charities. They look forward to this same involvement in our mountain community in and around Oakhurst.
