Long Beach Soon to Have First Distillery
Simon Haxton is bringing forth a gin that is unlike the common spirit: it is distilled with the addition of hibiscus, and the final product is an attractive magenta color.
Brian Addison of the Long Beach Post recently shared the exciting details of the new facility:
“This is the spirit behind Portuguese Bend, the endeavor announced last year from the owners of Lola’s and The Social List, Luis and Brenda Navarro—and their third dive into gastronomy, offering the city its first Made In Long Beach spirits, has officially broken ground.
‘We don’t have an exact opening date but we’re hoping to open somewhere around the first quarter of 2019,” Luis said. “But we’re moving forward: We have Studio One Eleven honing in a design and our 600-gallon still is currently being made by hand in Atlanta. Pretty stoked we straight up have our still coming in from the South.'”
