DESTINATION DISTILLERY: Sip, dine, shop, tour

Launched in 2016, The Blinking Owl is the very first craft distillery in Orange County. We are locavores, grain nerds, and control freaks so we decided to actually make our booze the long way: from scratch in-house! All of our spirits are produced in-house from 100% organic California grain.

BLINKING OWL RESTAURANT
Renowned for our spirit flights and craft cocktails, the essence of Blinking Owl Spirits continues to shine through our thoughtful food. From the hand ground organic California rye grain (used in our whiskey) in the artisanal pizzas to the ingredients sourced from weekly trips to the farmers market, every item embodies our commitment to quality. CHECK OUT THE MENU

RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY ADVISED. Seating is primarily on our large, lovely patio. Our intimate bar is our only indoor space and is open on a first come, first served basis. And yes, you can now have more than one drink as we are now a restaurant! RESERVATIONS

Other Helpful Information:

As a producer of alcoholic spirits, Blinking Owl will continue to be an adult-focused refuge from our crazy lives, but we do allow kids. With the liability and dangers of a distillery, everyone under 21 must stay with an adult at all times (so this is NOT the place for your kids birthday party). Children are not allowed to dine in the bar or attend tours. 

We are not able to accommodate animals-- sorry, not even on the patio (not even fake service animals).

PARKING: STREET PARKING ONLY (please try to park on Santiago Street to help respect our residential Logan neighbors). We highly encourage you to UBER/ LYFT/ Take the train (we are a short walk to the Santa Ana Train Depot).
