Blinking Owl Distillery and Bistro
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! We mill it, mash it, ferment it, distill it, and, in the case of whiskey, barrel age it for a minimum of 2 years.
THE RESTAURANT IS HERE (launched March 2021)
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 (the same used in our whiskey) in the artisanal pizzas to the sustainable California caviar, you'll love our Posh Comfort bar menu.
