Essex Apartment Homes

Joining Old Harbor Distilling Co. in the East Village and the blossoming San Diego spirits community is You & Yours Distilling Co., which will be opening a craft distillery and tasting room in the mixed-use Form 15 building on Market Street, where it will span a 2,300-square-foot suite at the corner of 15th and G.

Founder Laura Johnson, who graduated from USD, followed her passion for the craft of spirits by traveling the country for almost a year to learn the art of distilling through workshops and apprenticeships. As the head distiller of You & Yours, Johnson, who also runs the spirits-focused blog, Distillerista, will be one of just a handful of female lead distillers in the U.S.

Working on a custom hybrid eau de vie still, Johnson will produce high quality neutral spirits, including several styles of gin and vodka, plus un-aged fruit brandies and eventually, whiskey; Johnson says that she particularly loves gin and the creative freedom that American distillers are bringing to the spirit. Hoping to be operational by late summer, You & Yours Distilling Co. will feature a tasting room and lounge where patrons can buy bottles of the spirits and sample them via small pours or mini cocktails.
