OUR STORY

Established 2012 | Sonoma County | Healdsburg, CA

Krystle and Jason Jorgensen founded Alley 6 Craft Distillery in 2012. As artisans and business owners, the Jorgensen’s process is defined by a love for the craft and a deep appreciation for spirits. 

Alley 6 is, first and foremost, a small independent family-owned business, built by thrifty nickels and a lot of brow sweat. Amidst some of the best wineries, cideries and breweries in the land, the distillery is a dream come true. Krystle & Jason first began to develop an interest in beer and winemaking after moving to Northern California. Jason started slinging drinks at a steakhouse where they sell some of the best whiskies in the world and soon fell head first into the craft-distilling arena. They began attending tastings and shows, touring local distilleries, and eventually going on a life-changing trip to Scotland.

They knew this was their life’s passion and could be happy making whiskey every day. Happy to say after many years of planning, practicing and endless daydreaming the first batch of Alley 6 Rye Whiskey hit the shelves Summer 2015 and it is truly small batch with just 192 bottles all handcrafted. 

Alley 6 is truly a small batch craft distillery that delivers you a one of a kind experience. Every part of the process is done right here at the distillery in Healdsburg, Sonoma County, California—from milling the grain, to mashing, fermenting, distilling, barreling, and bottling. As a grain to glass distillery, Alley 6 is focused on quality ingredients, a hands-on process and unique flavor profiles. Experimenting with every step in the process has helped to better understand the effects of subtle choices on the final product resulting in spirits with deep complexity and character unlike anything you've tasted before.

Alley 6 produces premium spirits in small batches using traditional distilling techniques. The 132 gallon Alembic Copper pot still called Horton chugs away to help create the complex spirits. 

We love what we do and do what we love, and we want to share it with you!
