The Distilling Process. Our distilling process begins with the careful selection of the finest ingredients. We source locally whenever possible, supporting our community and ensuring the freshest flavors. From grains to botanicals, we take pride in the quality and integrity of our ingredients.
Once the ingredients are gathered, our skilled distillers work their magic. Our traditional copper stills are the heart of our operation, allowing us to carefully control the distillation process. The slow and meticulous distillation process ensures that every drop of our spirits is infused with the flavors and aromas we strive for.
After distillation, our spirits are carefully aged in oak barrels to develop their unique character and depth of flavor. We believe in the importance of time and patience, allowing our spirits to mature and evolve into something truly exceptional.

In the world of spirits, there is an art to crafting timeless classics. At Mission, we believe in pushing the boundaries of traditional distillation techniques to create new and exciting flavors. Our philosophy revolves around the concept of “technique blending” – the application of production practices from one beverage to another. This approach allows us to uncover unexplored intersections of flavor, much like the culinary arts.
Technique blending is a process that involves borrowing methods, ingredients, or ideas from one spirit category and applying them to another. By doing so, we can create unique flavor profiles that challenge the conventions of traditional distillation. It’s a way for us to break free from the limitations of established techniques and explore new possibilities.
One example of technique blending is the use of barrel aging. Traditionally, barrel aging is associated with whiskey production. The process of aging in oak barrels imparts rich flavors and complexity to the spirit. At Mission, we have taken this technique and applied it to other spirits such as rum and tequila. The result is a fusion of flavors that adds depth and character to these traditionally lighter spirits.
Another technique blending approach we embrace is the use of botanicals. Gin is known for its botanical infusion, with juniper berries being the dominant flavor. However, we have taken inspiration from the world of herbal liqueurs and incorporated a wider range of botanicals into our gin production. By doing so, we create a more complex and nuanced gin that appeals to a broader range of palates.
Technique blending is not limited to the distillation process alone. We also explore blending techniques in the creation of cocktails. By borrowing mixology techniques from different cultures and traditions, we can create innovative and unexpected flavor combinations. For example, we might take inspiration from the world of tiki cocktails and incorporate tropical fruits and exotic spices into a classic whiskey cocktail. This technique blending approach adds a new dimension to the drinking experience and keeps our customers intrigued.
At Mission, we believe that technique blending is a form of artistry. It requires a deep understanding of the spirits being blended and the techniques being borrowed. It’s about finding the right balance and harmony between different elements to create something truly unique and memorable.
By embracing technique blending, we are able to offer our customers a diverse range of spirits that challenge their palates and expand their horizons. It’s about pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the world of classical spirits and creating new traditions along the way.
So the next time you raise a glass of our meticulously crafted spirit, remember that behind every sip lies the art of technique blending – a fusion of tradition and innovation that brings new flavors to life.
