The Distillery

Feel the magic at work in our custom copper Holstein Still which is prominently housed right in the hotel lobby and is surrounded by racks filled with an assortment of local wines native to the Central Coast and San Luis Obispo.

Traditionally, Brasseries not only housed microbreweries but often advanced to the next stage of alchemy with artisanal distilling. At Brasserie SLO we have adopted this tradition by crafting spirits and liquors utilizing botanicals harvested from the Central Coast. Tangy citrus oils of bitter orange, Kaffir lime, and Meyer lemon; warm aromatic spice notes of coriander, lavender, and cinnamon provide just a few of the exciting opportunities for signature cocktails and desserts. Brasserie SLO reaches back into history and is the location of the oldest pub in the county.

Our Distillery is available for your next private dinner and can accommodate parties of up to 12 guests. Our expert and detailed culinary team will create a customized dinner and wine pairing for your gathering. Thoughtful and personalized options for each guest.
