The Spirit Guild is a collection of artists, weirdos, and dreamers dedicated to celebrating the fruits and flavors of California through the traditional art of distillation. Their tasting room and distillery are situated in Los Angeles’ Arts District on a site where once thrived the state’s first commercial vineyards and orange groves, just blocks from the scenic Los Angeles River.
The Spirit Guild Manifesto dictates that every aspect of production - fermentation, distillation, blending - be done in house, by Guild members. No part of the process is outsourced.
The Spirit Guild was founded in 2012 by Miller Duvall and Morgan McLachlan. Miller’s family has been farming in California for six generations. Flavors and aromas from those ancestral farms and orchards were - and continue to be - inspirations for The Spirit Guild’s products. Head Distiller Morgan McLachlan’s Scottish-Canadian roots endowed her with a profound understanding of that enigmatic spirit of the British Isles: gin. Naturally, Astral Pacific Gin, the product of inspiration and years of hard work, was the Guild’s first and flagship product.
