Our Journey

A story about an illegal love

A taste for lawlessness and small batch liquor runs deep in the Bergh family roots. When the Feds shut down Aaron’s great-great-grandfather’s moonshining operation during Prohibition, the family business was far from over. Almost a century later, the craft that runs in Aaron’s blood re-emerged when he made the reckless decision to start making hooch in his college dorm room. What began as a humble hobby quickly grew into a passion and then evolved into an obsession.

A perfectionist and lover of nature, Aaron takes inspiration from the place he calls home and its rich culture. He shares the experiences he found on the central coast – the sights, the smells, and the flavors – through his creations at Calwise Spirits Co.
