7/13/2021 - A Letter From Reed & Lacey
Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for your interest in California Gold, we would like to thank you for your support, its been quite a year. We released our 2nd batch of The Gold two years ago with distribution from BOCK Wine & Spirits. After a year of bars and restaurants closing there doors, we decided to freeze our operations with BOCK, and sold our remaining stock to Northbrae Bottle Shop in Berkeley, CA. Northbrae Bottle Shop, a local boutique liquor store that sells premium independent spirits, has supported our brand since its first commercial batch in 2016, making California Gold #1 in spirit sales for 2018/2019 as well as one of our top retailers.
We will continue to make California Gold, as well as other unique specialty spirits we got brewing in the hopper. If you are interested in keeping up with Reed & Lacey California Gold, please let us know, and if you are low on stock now you know where to go.

California Gold receives a Gold Medal at the prestigious 2015 SIP AWARDS in The the Overproof category.
The Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards were created to fill the void that is the current state of international spirits competitions. The illusion created by massive advertising budgets, celebrity endorsements and lofty judging is old, tired and susceptible to industry bias.
There is no better group of advisors for a product than real consumers. The SIP Awards are the first to cut to the core of public opinion as a starting point, rather than an afterthought, in branding and product development. Catering to the palates and opinions of the consuming public, the SIP Awards present a unique, spirit-judging competition, unaffected by industry bias.
