Meet the distillers of SLO de VIE

Meet the distillers of SLO de VIE @slodevie in Grover Beach and discover a taste of Portugal made right here on the Central Coast of California.🇵🇹🇵🇹

Thomas and Anatoly come from two quite different geographical locations: Portugal’s Azores islands and St. Petersburg, Russia. Thomas is a successful real estate developer and Anatoly is classically trained musician, graduate of Juilliard school. For centuries Thomas’ family was making and consuming aguardent and Anatoly’s family, vodka. These home brews were like so many families efforts, a straightforward endeavor, and all for personal consumption.

Fast forward to 2011: the year Thomas and Anatoly met. They soon became friends and business partners. Both enjoyed parties with their families, sharing good wine and food. Both had passion for everything grape: wines, brandies, eau de vie and grappa. Both have taken trips to Europe to observe old world ways of making spirits. After years of trial and error, using an old Portuguese alembic still, they felt ready and confident to bring their stuning grappa product to the market.
