Nerd Taste of Los Angeles: Lost Spirits Distillery

Lost Spirits is a distillery in Los Angeles, and is not like your typical distillery. The owners have created a unique design to the entrance, where the only way for the general public to access the distillery and laboratory is through a boat. That’ll keep those recipes secret! The insides of the distillery are also closely guarded, having been built by the owners without use of any contractor or people outside of the company. So… if you fall through the floor, that’s on you.

Earlier in this year a small fire burned down part of the distillery. However the establishment was re-built even better! Now they are ready for visitors, are you ready for the adventure?

As we stated earlier, people who visit the distiller are taken from the gate via boat to the actual warehouse. Therein you will see every step of their process from ingredient to liquor. If you keep your eyes open, you may even find out about new things that they are working on that haven’t been announced yet.
