Origin


The Malahat was the "Queen of Rum Row" - a five masted schooner that supplied the finest spirits to Southern California during Prohibition.

The Malahat

The Malahat was a five masted schooner.  She sailed down the West Coast during Prohibition.  Capable of carrying over 60,000 cases of spirits, she delivered more contraband liquor than any other ship in the Pacific. Anchoring off the coast of Southern California, she delivered her spirits to rum runners who would take the precious cargo to shore to awaiting patrons.  She quickly became known as “The Queen of Rum Row”. If you drank your liquor in San Diego during Prohibition, chances are your booze came from the Malahat.

Three friends

We set out to create the finest spirits for ourselves, our friends and our families. Our shared belief that the spirits industry could benefit from an infusion of innovation, experimentation and good old handcrafting brought us together to found the distillery.

To execute our vision, we commissioned two copper pot stills. The large dual column copper pot still was custom designed to fit into the skylight of the production facility, the only spot in the distillery tall enough for the towering copper columns. A smaller “experimental” copper still was designed for small batches for research and development to create our innovative recipes.

Malahat Spirits is currently focused on producing rum and whiskey. Fortunately, the production still is capable of producing any spirit, and more innovative spirits are on the horizon.
