Sutherland Distilling Company

Doctor Inkwell would like to introduce you to Sutherland Distilling Company, founded by brothers Ryan and Barry Sutherland and Eric Larimer. On this exclusive, private tour, we will see the facility, hear about their process and taste spirits from the Diablo's Shadow line, which includes bourbon, vodka, rye and rum. As part of the Boozephreaks tour, all participiants will be entitled to tasting glass and small gift bag. You must be at least 21 years of age to join.

Meet at the distillery at 5:15pm. Please arrive on time to avoid missing the tour. Follow the signs carefully to find the correct location.

Look for Doctor Inkwell in his labcoat to begin.


After the tour, the Doctor has made group reservation at The Last Word, a gastropub just moments away owned by a local husband bartender and wife chef that carries the FULL LINE OF SUTHERLAND SPIRITS. In addition to the tapas-style food, we'll be getting drinks too, all for a discount. Join us for dinner as we'll be out on the patio!

Depending on the group, I expect the cost to be ~$40-$60 each. Sign up if you're uncertain, as then I will include you on the details. You can always drop out as we get closer. is at 2470 First Street, Livermore, CA 94550. 925.493.7293
