Family-owned and operated distillery Napa Valley Distillery completed its equity crowdfunding round on Indiegogo/MicroVentures’ platform. The company secured its initial $50,000 funding target early on and finished the round with $778,478 from 790 backers.

Napa Valley Distillery’s 12,000-square-foot production facility notably houses a tasting salon and event center, and a second vintage bar shop and tasting room is located inside the Oxbow Public Market. The company itself also operates a Distinguished Bar Club, which ships members spirits, bitters, syrups, mixers, and barware every quarter as well as providing access to discounts and invitations to exclusive events.
“NVD’s specialties are its oak-infused cocktails that replicate alcoholic drinks that were made and served in the U.S. as far back as the early 1800’s. NVD handcrafts each recipe using its own craft spirits, all-natural ingredients, and handmade bitters. The ingredients are mixed together in small batches and infused with oak. It is this special aging process that allows the ingredients of the cocktail to truly infuse and intensify, allowing the cocktail to take on the complex characteristics of the oak. The end result is a smooth and elegant cocktail reminiscent of an era long gone by.”
Funds from the campaign will be used for continuing to expand the Distillery.
