Heights Distilling Co.


Heights Distilling is what happens when a Kansas-born journalist falls for a filmmaker from a hooch-making family in the Republic of Georgia. Nick and Tamara met in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi in 2009 and the pair moved to Brooklyn in 2015. In 2017, they took over Heights Distilling with the goal of introducing the US to Tamara's family recipe for chacha, a hearty grape pomace brandy.

Their daughter and supervisor, Phoebe, was born in September.

Heights will be releasing its first chacha in early 2018, and has other exciting small-batch products available now including delicious single-barrel Bourbons and Ryes and the unique barrel-rested Strange Night Vodka!
