14 San Francisco Bay Area Distilleries to Try Today

Sometimes you need a whiskey in a pretty bottle. It also helps when the whiskey is the official spirit of the 49ers. Gold Bar Whiskey distillery on Treasure Island ages its whiskey in Napa wine barrels. Each 750ML features a “Lady of Fortune” brass coin embedded on the front making the bottle a work of art. There’s also the black-label brand for the whiskey lover who doesn’t need the gold to show off its shine. This packaging makes the gift a favorite for whiskey lovers and aesthetic enthusiasts alike. Plans are in the works to open a tasting room, but in the meantime, enjoy these spirits at Mersea on Treasure Island during the golden hour of a Bay Area sunset.
