We are a true small batch distiller that ferments and distills every last drop of alcohol we sell. Our idea of handcrafted means more than just bottling and labeling. Every drop you enjoy is made in our still in Boulder.

our story

Seth Johnson and Justin Lee met at a home brew club in Boulder over a decade ago. Justin had recently finished his chemical engineering degree at CU and Seth was working as a physicist in Denver. They each had common ideas on distilling and founded J&L Distilling Co 4 years ago. Together they bring over 25 years of brewing and distilling experience to
J&L  making for some masterfully handcrafted spirits.


Our followers are invited to join our bottling parties where each bottle is filled and labeled by hand, ready to be shipping to you. We find this a great way to engage and involve people, creating a strong community spirit. Last year we sponsored many non-profits allowing us to give back to the people that support us.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE... No really there will be more,
more products! We will be starting production this fall on
our whiskey and rum. Just in time for the festive season our
white rum will be ready to cheer at all your holiday events.

clean promise

Crafting pure clean vodka requires a lot of energy. Luckily when two scientists get together changes happen, and they not only taste good but minimize environmental impact. Our column still has been engineered by us to not only be energy efficient but produce an ultra smooth vodka flavor. The heat it generates warms water for our tasting room and fermentation. That’s not just good news for your palette but your eco conscience too.
