Visit them in North Park

Located in the heart of North Park and founded in 2012 by San Diego local, Nick Apostolopoulous, 619 Spirits Distillery & Tasting Room is San Diego’s first urban craft distillery and tasting room with a full restaurant and bar. The 4,200 square foot reclaimed industrial space includes a custom-made, two-column, 1,000L still that produces six varieties of vodka, plus seasonal flavors.

619 Spirits Vodka is distilled entirely from cane sugar resulting in a uniquely clean and smooth taste, texture, and natural absence of gluten. The brand is known for its premium vodka and signature all-natural vodka infusions that feature ingredients sourced from local San Diego purveyors, including Scorpion Peppers, Pickles, Cucumbers and Rose Petals.

The tasting room also exclusively features a selection of local San Diego craft spirits, including locally batched You & Yours Gin and Malahat Rum, along with beer and wine.

Congratulations to Nick and the 619 Spirits team!

See you there, San Diego!
