Paso Robles may be known for its booming wine country, but it also boasts an incredible underground industry of craft distilleries. These Paso distilleries are breaking new ground for the flavor of spirits, often influenced by the wine that is so prominent in the Central Coast region. You can find two of these great distilleries right here in Tin City!
On the outskirts of Tin City is Calwise Spirits. They sit right next to a brewery and a winery. A celebration of the California lifestyle, this craft distillery prides itself in creating spirits packed with California sunshine and earthy flavors. From rum rested in chardonnay barrel to gin distilled from wine grapes, the Paso Robles wine influence reaches this small distiller. A bonus, this spot also serves tasty bites from jalapeno poppers to cheesy flatbreads.
