At Wheyward Spirit, we’re taking farm-to-flask to the next level by handcrafting specialty spirits made from upcycled whey forthe perfect drink pairings to enjoy alongside your favorite California cheeses.

 

With Wheyward Spirit and Wheyward Wheyskey, you’ll have a two-bottle cocktail solution, so no matter the types of cheeseand flavor profiles, you can create a customized drink pairing for any occasion for an elevated experience from the standard wine and cheese pairing.

 

Our award-winning specialty spirits are handcrafted from upcycled whey for more sippable, versatile, and sustainable offerings where customers can taste a difference and make a difference™.

The U.S. government has defined standards for types of distilled spirits, but we are breaking the mold with our handcrafted specialty spirits. Our classification as a specialty spirit comes from our holistic approach to fermentation and distillation that allows us to retain a natural character and smoothness true to its source. This innovation allows usto be the versatile base for all your favorite cocktails and the smooth and sippable choice to drink straight.

 

Wheyward Spirit is a first-of-its-kind, award-winning, 80-proof specialty spirit with velvety smooth notes of oaky vanilla and warm spice. It’s perfect for sipping on the rocks with a twist of lemon or as an elevated alternative to a traditional clear base spirit like vodka, tequila, gin, or rum in cocktails. Wheyward Spirit is Certified Carbon Neutral,a Good Food Award Winner, and has earned Gold and Double Gold Medals at leading international spirits competitions like NYWWSC and SFWSC.

 

Wheyward Wheyskey is an exciting evolution of aged spirits that takes the award-winning flavor of Wheyward Spirit and lets it naturally blossom through sustainable aging in re-coopered oak barrels. Savor balanced and approachable notes of oaky vanilla, toffee, and warm spice on therocks, or elevate your favorite cocktail with a bespoke twist as an aged spirit alternative.

 

Wheyward Spirit and Wheyward Wheyskey are doing things differently for the right reasons and are proudly woman-operated and free from additives, flavorings, gluten, grain, and lactose.

 

For every ten pounds of milk, only one pound of cheese is made, leaving behind nine pounds of liquid whey and causing billions of pounds of this high-quality ingredient to be discarded each year. Wheyward Spirit is tapping into this liquid gold and tackling the waste stream head-on by upcycling whey to create our delicious specialty spirits.

 

By giving whey its highest and best use, our innovative spirits reduce gallons of waste with every bottle, have a lower carbon and water footprint than traditional spirits, and support the domestic food system and producers.

 

We partner with California cheese producers to source our whey and distill our spirits right here in Sonoma County, California for the ultimate Farm-to-Flask spirit.

Paired alongside cheese, our spirits help to tell a whole food story, connecting you to where your food comes from and bringing a new, unique experience to your cocktail and food choices.
