Loft & Bear

California-based Loft & Bear was founded by entrepreneur Paul Ryan Elliott in a loft in downtown Los Angeles. With a passion for vodka, Elliott set out to innovate in the alcohol space and opened his distillery in summer 2014.

The distillery’s core product is Loft & Bear Vodka, which is distilled four times in Los Angeles. It is made with organic winter wheat planted in autumn and harvested mid-summer, and Californian mountain spring water.

In addition, 5% of Loft & Bear’s profits go towards supporting charity Path’s goal to end homelessness in southern California.
