Los Angeles’s distillery scene is experiencing a renaissance. Due to high rent prices and some anachronistic laws it was almost impossible to set up a distillery in LA for most of the last 50 years. Recent legal changes have led to a boom in the space, and there are now dozens of new distilleries in the city. We’re not quite at craft beer numbers, but we’re getting close. In 2011 Greenbar became the first distillery to open in the county. We put together this map and guide on distilleries in the area. If you see a distillery missing, please hit us up and let us know. Distilleries with blue pins offer tours. Those with purple pins don’t. Last updated 9/23/2018.
