Founded in Jackson, CA in 2012, Amador Distillery creates small batch spirits by blending the finest ingredients from local vintners, brewers, and our talented farming community. Our local water supply originates high in the Sierra Nevada which gives us extremely clean, neutral water that allows the flavor of our spirits to shine through. We bottle our spirits in small batches by hand so each bottle is given our personal attention. All Engine 49 handcrafted Whiskies and Bourbons experience a deeper aging process in the Sierra foothills. Rapid daily
temperature swings and a lack of humidity stress the American Oak barrels causing deeper penetration of the staves. This gives our Whiskies richer color, aroma, and taste. Our unique Brandies are made from 100% fruit with no added flavoring, concentrates, coloring, or sweeteners of any kind, and aged in oak barrels that have previously been used to age whiskey or wine which adds great flavor and richness.
