The Blinking Owl is the very first craft distillery in Orange County, CA. We make Vodka, Gin, several types of Whiskey, and the Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit. We are locavores, grain nerds, and control freaks so we decided to actually make our booze the long way: from grain rather than pre-made spirit. The grain used to craft our spirits is certified organic and from California farms. We are a destination distillery with an onsite restaurant as the perfect showroom to experience our brand.
We hope for full expansion as we grow the brand to 50,000+ annual case sales over the next 4 years with distribution to all states and several international markets. We'd like to purchase our existing 26,000 building or find another permanent property. Having experienced a prior successful acquisition, we believe there is a "sweet spot" in which the best pathway to the next level will be to take on a VC partner or, if the situation is right, transition through an acquisition.
