Hangar 1 Distillery could be your new favorite place to spend an afternoon in the Bay Area. In addition to offering tasting flights and tours that educate your palate, they also host an array of experiences and events.


At Hangar 1's quarterly Head West Marketplace, for example, you can shop hand-crafted jewelry, clothing and home décor along with one-of-a-kind vintage items from some of California's most sought-after crafts vendors.

For the foodies out there, Hangar 1 offers pairing flights featuring their distinctive spirits with either chocolate or cheese sourced from artisan local makers—think Recchiuti Confections, Tcho Chocolates, Farmstead Cheeses, and The Cheese Board Collective. Once you try this unique experience, you'll never think of vodka the same way again.

Aspiring mixologists can sign up for cocktail classes designed to teach the history of mixed drinks, the tools required to make them, and customizable variations on classic themes. The team at Hangar 1 believes you don't need to make your own fancy tinctures, syrups, and infusions to impress your guests—everyone can master a complex craft cocktail at home.

Join the spirits guides at Hangar 1 Distillery for any or all of these special experiences, or check out their options for your next private event. With the most exquisite sunset views to be found from their Alameda locale, you'll want to visit soon.
