Our spirits

SoNo 1420 whiskeys and gins are unlike any others on the planet.  The unique flavor profile of these spirits derive from the use of hemp seeds and flowers in their recipes.  We are the first distillery in the country to incorporate hemp seeds and flowers in our recipes.   Hemp was legalized for production and consumption  in the U.S.  for the first time in over 70 years when Congress passed the 2014 Farm Bill.


With a never-seen-before mash bill consisting of 75% corn, 15% rye, and 10% hand-milled hemp seed, the nose on this whiskey is unexpected, considering the mash bill – light and floral, suggestive of Honeysuckle. There are also hints of dried fruit, particularly cherries.  On the palate, all the vanilla, cinnamon, and honey expected of a bourbon whiskey are present but, instead of trailing off into the usual extended, syrupy butterscotch-caramel finish, the journey continues down towards some interesting, nutty-flavor characteristics – another contribution of the ground hemp seen.  Roll the whiskey over your tongue and chase the flavors down the rabbit hole.


Made from 75% rye, 15% corn, and 10% milled hemp seed, this hearty whiskey exhibits pepper on the nose, with a faint and elusive honey undertone.  On the palate, the characteristic bite of rye has been softened to a nibble, allowing flavors of pepper and cinnamon honey to spring forth pursued by marzipan and dried fruits in the finish.  For all its intrigue, this is a rye drinker’s rye – a day-in/day-out, easy sipping whiskey.


Myrcene, linalool, beta caryophyllene and pinene are the predominant terpenes gracing this gin and provide a classic dry gin taste experience. Sip Indica for stress relief after a long day at the office, chilling at home with a movie or even as a nightcap before bed.  Be careful - A little goes a long way:  Imbibe too much and you might be couch locked, with a numb body and soon fast asleep.


Balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration.  Infused with a full complement of terpenes including limonene, myrcene, beta caryophyllene and alpha-pinene, the result is flowery/piney scented and tasting gin with a hint of classic dry gin taste proving to be smoother than bitter
