Our Story

Florida Raised and Distilled

Being Florida-raised means something. To us, it means a love of the ocean, a love of the outdoors, a love of community. As two engineers, we found we had a fascination with the art and science of distillation, so when we had a dream of starting a local craft distillery, we knew we wanted to incorporate the essence of Florida into our products -- sugar cane, citrus, grains, and botanicals to bring you the finest, smoothest spirits possible.

We decided to name our distillery Loggerhead after the magnificent but threatened species of sea turtle that finds its nesting ground on our Florida shores. We are currently seeking to give back to non-profit partners that have programs for ocean protection and cleanup. After all, it's their Florida, too. Please enjoy our products responsibly, and please recycle.

We look forward to getting to know more people in our community as we open our doors in historic downtown Sanford, the city we love and live in.

Craft Spirits

Hand-Made in Small Batches

Loggerhead Silver Rum

Crafted from three simple ingredients: molasses, sugar, and water. Loggerhead Silver Rum is light in color and rich in taste.

Drink neat or mix into your favorite rum cocktail to see the delicious difference small batch distillation can make from mass produced rums.

Loggerhead Spiced Rum

Using our silver rum as a head start, Loggerhead Spiced Rum is then aged in oak to bring out notes of vanilla, then spiced with real cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and orange peel.

Don’t cover it up with Coke, the only thing you’ll want to mix this with is an ice cube!

Loggerhead Key Lime Gin

We admit, Gin is an acquired taste. So acquire this one. Loggerhead Gin is crafted with real fruits and botanicals, not extracts and artificial flavorings like so many others.

We use juniper (a contractual obligation to call it gin), but then put a Florida twist on it – Key lime, orange, lemon, grapefruit, and a few others we’ll keep secret are infused to give it a taste like no other.

Loggerhead Vodka

One word: smooth. OK, two: smooth smooth.

Loggerhead Vodka is a tasty 6x distilled and 8x filtered grain-based staple for so many cocktails, you must add it to your liquor cabinet (or your desk drawer, if you're naughty).

What grain, you ask? Good old 'merican non-GMO corn, so it is also gluten free! We insisted on that because we couldn’t exclude anyone from enjoying its smoothness in their favorite vodka-based cocktail.

By the way, did we mention its smooth?

Loggerhead Bourbon

Bourbon is an American favorite, and who are we to deny the people?

Made from corn, barley, and rye, bourbon is then aged in a new, charred American oak barrel to bring out notes of vanilla, toffee, leather, toasted marshmallow, and buttery caramel. The best way to drink bourbon? However you like. Coming soon to a barrel near you.

Loggerhead Sweet Tea Vodka

Starting with ultra-smooth Loggerhead Vodka, we steep real tea, local honey, and lemon to give a kick to traditional southern sweet tea.

Try it with lemonade and you will be amazed. Amazed, I tell you.
