The Beach Boys' Mike Love To Open Tasting Room For San Diego-Based Spirits Brand

March 19, 2024

The Beach Boys co-founder and longtime San Diego resident Mike Love is opening a Miramar-based tasting room for his Club Kokomo Spirits distillery.

In 2022, Beach Boys singer & songwriter Mike Love purchased a majority interest in San Diego-based Seven Caves Spirits, which was founded in Miramar in 2016 by distiller Geoff Longnecker. The duo's partnership originally launched with Seven Caves producing a lineup of Club Kokomo canned cocktails for a cruise celebrating the 60th anniversary of The Beach Boys and eventually rolled into a full-fledged brand. 

Now Club Kokomo is now expanding from canned cocktails into the spirits game with the launch of a lineup of rums, including Artisanal White Rum, Tahitian Vanilla Rum, and Barrel Finished Rum. The company is also building a tasting room that will open to the public this summer at its facility in Miramar. Expect the distillery hub to be outfitted in surf-themed decor and Beach Boys memorabilia. 

Club Kokomo offers a product meant to give off "vacation in a can" vibes. Made with natural juice, flavors and sugar, each cocktail is also gluten free and features over 10% alcohol by volume. Canned cocktail flavors include Kokomojito, a version of a classic Mojito; Afternoon Delight with citrus, maple, ginger and allspice, Excitation with gin and notes of black cherry, passionfruit and citrus; and Mystique, with rum, guava, lychee and jasmine tea. 

Club Kokomo Spirits is located at 7950 Stromesa Court in San Diego's Miramar. For more information, visit
