Pacific Coast Spirits is Nicholas' vision to create a craft distillery true to the craft and adventure as well as the Pacific Coast Region. This is a place where friends and family can come together to enjoy quality spirits and food while continuously learning and witnessing where their products are being made (start to finish). The vision comes together with the team/family he has built here in Oceanside, California. "We have a true synergy of bounty and libations here at Pacific Coast Spirits and are committed to sourcing ingredients locally. We are proud to be a grain-to-glass distillery, meaning all of our whiskeys are made from raw ingredients, not from neutral grain spirit (NGS). Sustainability is core to our business and is key to our future. It is our duty to make it an effort in everything we do; in process and in waste. All of our spent grains go to local ranchers as feed, we compost all of our green waste from the restaurant and recycle wherever possible,” said Nicholas. The focus on local agriculture will continue through its family-friendly restaurant. Leading the kitchen is Head Chef Nick Schaller, whose menu of shareable plates will include a sampler of housemade bacon, local fish crudo, and fried chicken with a cornbread waffle that features the spent grain from the corn whiskey production. Pacific Coast Spirits is leading the charge as a craft distillery and kitchen concept in San Diego and the only one of its kind. The location is family friendly, casual and comfortable with an elevated hospitality experience. They currently make the following spirits: Vodka, Gin, Brandy, Agave Spirit and Whiskey. Within the Whiskey Family, they have a White Whiskey, a Bourbon, and an American Single Malt, with many more distinct releases to follow.
With a slogan of “Where the Mountains meet the Ocean” the spirits and the brand fit right at home here in North County San Diego. Give them a visit in Oceanside, California. Pacific Coast Spirits is open Wednesdays - Sundays serving lunch and dinner. They look forward to meeting you!
