You & Yours Distilling Co. opens its distillery and tasting room in San Diego’s East Village on Thursday, March 9. California’s first urban destination distillery, You & Yours is owned and operated by Laura Johnson - one of the country’s few female distillers.
"I chose the name 'You & Yours' for my first distilling venture as a nod to the spirits' underlying purpose: to provide a setting where friends and family can come together, enjoy an elevated imbibing experience, and maybe learn a little something along the way - whether it be about craft distilling, cocktail culture or each other. By You & Yours, for you and yours," explains Johnson.
In addition to Johnson, the team at You & Yours Distilling Co. consists of co-founder Luke Mahoney (entrepreneur, marketing expert and hospitality veteran), and Chris Frierson and Trevor Bowles, a duo of former Consortium Holdings (Craft & Commerce, Ironside Fish & Oyster, Polite Provisions) barmen heading up the cocktail program and tasting room operations. On the production side, Johnson is supported by remote distilling consultant Anthony Cano (Death’s Door Spirits, Ascendant Spirits).
Located at 1495 G Street in San Diego, You & Yours’ tasting room will be open to the public Thursday & Friday from 4pm to 10pm, and Saturday & Sunday from 12pm to 10pm for tasting flights, cocktails and bottle sales.
