Jettywave Distillery



About Us

Jettywave is a distillery experience that embraces the modern northern California coastal life. We wanted to find a path to ride our beach cruisers here to the harbor to create unexpected flavors with organic integrity in the wild pourings we distill and concoct. We welcome only those friendly, to drink responsibly, and healthfully with us in Half Moon Bay's Princeton Harbor. We are currently producing using three stills and mash-tun we installed here at Jettywave Distillery. We have one 150-gallon stripping still, one 26-gallon copper pot still for finishing whiskies, bourbons and Half Moon Shine™, and one 26-gallon column still for finishing gins and vodkas. Our stills are all hand-forged in Colorado. We love MileHi Stills American-made copper and stainless metalworks, which plays into our hopes of buying as locally as possible. With an all-metal distillation and redwood fermentation, our distillery will be almost entirely plastic-free.

Mixology 101
We were never great students, but this class is an easy A+. Join us as we show you some of our secrets behind our shakers. Some of our favorite recipes will be shared in our Mixology classes offered at Jettywave Distillery. Add this supplement to your private event for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Email us for more information.
Jettywave Distillery and The Swell Lounge grounds are available for select private events. We have a locally inspired, marine rustic building that provides a relaxed, chic ambiance. We are in the middle of Princeton harbor in Half Moon Bay with San Fransisco and Palo Alto.
