Hotaling & Co. is the leading San Francisco distiller and American artisanal spirt pioneer. First established in 1993 as Anchor Distilling Company by Fritz Maytag, the same beverage visionary who sparked the craft beer movement with his purchase of Anchor Brewing in 1965. Maytag saw an opportunity to revive rye whiskey, fueled by the bold realization that there were no pot-distilled whiskies being made legally in America at the time. Finding inspiration in the rye whiskies of America’s past and the great single malt whiskies of Scotland, Fritz gathered a small team to begin building a distillery. This distillery is credited with releasing America’s first craft whiskey (Old Potrero) and American craft gin (Junípero Gin) after Prohibition. In 2017, Anchor Distilling became Hotaling & Co. The new name is a nod to one of Anchor Distilling’s most beloved small batch whiskies (Old Potrero Hotaling’s Whiskey) and to the San Francisco legend A.P. Hotaling, who came out West during the Gold Rush and quickly became one of the most reputable spirits dealers in the country. In San Francisco drinks culture, Hotaling’s name became immortalized when his whiskey warehouse on Jackson Street survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Today, the Hotaling name remains a part of San Francisco drinking culture as the distillery celebrates nearly 30 years of artisanal spirit production and a tradition of creating visionary beverages.
