”Everything here is so smooth and drinkable neat. I’m a fan and will be collecting all 5 varietals (gin, whiskey, bourbon, rye, brandy). The gin is the one you can find at retailers throughout CA but the others you can only find at the distillery since they are so small batch. The owner is super nice, friendly, knowledgable and welcoming. Do yourself a favor and enhance your liquor collection with something from this distillery.” – Samantha Stone

“High praise for the Eric and the Patio 29 Team! They were the only local distillery who made available to us highly sought after hand sanitizer, initially only for health care providers like ourselves. They enabled us to reopen our optometry office safely – keeping our patients and our team safe. Works great and has a pleasant floral scent. Thank you for all your hard work during this pandemic. It is much appreciated! Hoping you will reopen fully soon!” – Frances Leung
