About Us

The pileated woodpecker on our logo is one tenacious bird. He beats his head over and over on a seemingly impervious surface, knowing a tasty nugget will result given the right amount of work. Opening this distillery felt like that at times; it was very much worth it! We are over two years old now and we are gaining steam. 

We are proud to present our line of award winning, carefully crafted artisan spirits. We know you will enjoy.

Sterling Silver Rum

Sterling Silver Rum is distilled from turbinado sugar and molasses that comes straight from Louisiana.  It is fermented slowly the goes through a double distillation process that gives it just the right amount of mouthfeel and funk.  It makes a fine daiquiri and stands up well with lime and mint for a mojito.  This spirit scored a Gold Medal in the 2020 American Distilling Institute's international Tasting of Craft Spirits.


Solid Gold Rum

40% Alc. by Vol.

Solid Gold Rum Rested on Toasted Oak Cubes starts out as our Sterling Silver Rum.  After a double distillation, though, it rests with toasted American oak cubes to give it a beautiful golden color and a lot of flavor. Hints of vanilla, butterscotch, and caramel soften this spirit. It mixes great in a Tiki cocktail.


Cacao Flavored Rum

40% Alc. by Vol.

Cacao Flavored Rum Starts out as our Sterling Silver Rum then after a double distillation, it rests with heavily roasted cacao nibs to give it its dark color and magnificent chocolate nose and flavor.  It is not sweet, and it is not filtered.  IT is like drinking a dark chocolate bar.  It plays great in cocktails and sips nicely on its own.


Goodland Gin

42% Alc. by Vol.

Goodland Gin was created to honor Goleta's agricultural roots.  It is a balances blend of citrus, floral, and piney juniper. 14 botanicals dance together to create Goodland Gin's enticing aroma and flavor.   It makes a great dry martini, a beautiful negroni and a powerful gin and tonic. This spirit is our "Overachiever" and has won many awards, a Silver at the 2019 American Distilling Institute's International Tasting of Craft Spirits, a silver at the San Diego International Spirits Competition, a gold in the famous Barleycorn awards 2019, and a Best in Show at the Great American International Spirits Tasting 2019.


Goodland Barrel Rested Gin

42% Alc. by Vol.

Goodland Barrel Rested Gin is spicy and bold, showing oak flavors alongside warmth from the gin's botanicals. Green and black pepper spices, vanilla and butterscotch, and sweet citrus all play well with the intensity of this juniper.  Try it in a negroni, or in a classic Martinez cocktail, or just sip it by itself. This spirit scored a Double Gold in the John Barleycorn Awards Spring 2020.


Orange Java Overproof Rum Liqueur

57% Alc. by Vol.

This Orange and Coffee flavored Rum liqueur is quite unique.  Sweet and unctuous in the mouth and full of flavor.  It starts out as our Sterling Silver Rum but then rests for a long while with organic local oranges and locally roasted coffee.  Strong in flavor and strong in potency.  It weighs in at 57% alcohol by volume. It is a wonderful substitute for Cointreau when mixing cocktails.  It also sips quite nicely chilled on ice.




GoletAmaro is a bitter/sweet taste of Goleta.  It is flavored with all the botanicals of Goodland Gin plus 10 more.  Cinchona, gentian, quassia bark, and local grapefruit zest, all classic ingredients of amaro, create a soft bitterness that is balanced with notes of chocolate, rose, and artemisia (wormwood and tarragon). It is sweet but not cloying.  Try it in your favorite negroni recipe,

Our Reviews


I had no idea that this distillery existed and I'm so glad that it does. What a hidden gem! It's located in the middle of a business park, so a bit off the beaten path. It is run by a very knowledgeable owner and his rum is unique and very smooth. (I had a blended piña colada which was perfection). I highly recommend that you stop in for a tasting. Five stars.
