Shadow Ridge Spirits Company

California-based Shadow Ridge Spirits Company specialises in premium small batch, handmade spirits. It is the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Sean Hallman and Lisa Ireland, who operate it as a part-time venture.

Hallman is a former navy surface warfare officer and currently works as a federal civilian employee for the US Department of the Navy, while Lisa is a secondary school teacher. The couple spend most of their weekends at the distillery.

The site produces 100% grain-to-glass whiskey aged in American white oak barrels. The range includes Bourbon, rye, peated single malt and an American single malt. In addition to whiskey, the site produces rum and a gin is also in development.
