Beverly Spirits crafts an exceptional sipping experience with award-winning American whiskey. Founded by Andrew Borenzweig, an entrepreneur whose background is in the whiskey industry, Beverly Spirits is his vision to create a new style of American whiskey rooted in an ethos of effortless luxury inspired by the lifestyle of his hometown of Los Angeles.
Our signature blends are designed by Founder Andrew Borenzweig and Master Blender Murphy Quint to perfect the balance between the bold, spicy flavor of rye, and the rich feel of bourbon. Each batch is artisanally crafted at Cedar Ridge Distillery in Swisher, Iowa, using proprietary recipes comprised of straight rye and straight bourbon whiskeys hand selected from Iowa and Indiana.
Andrew partnered with Cedar Ridge Distillery to create these signature blends, admiring the family-owned distillery’s legacy, product, and most importantly, people, cultivating a relationship based on a shared passion and commitment to quality. Working closely with Murphy Quint, Cedar Ridge’s Head Distiller, they spent years refining their recipe to craft a signature profile that is bold and complex yet inviting and smooth.
They undertook a rigorous recipe development process leading to a celebratory conclusion in Barrel Shed #7 at Cedar Ridge on an Iowa summer day in 2021. After exhaustive tastings, crafting blend after blend by hand, evaluating each at cask strength, then at different proofs, they finalized their original recipe, The Beverly High Rye, and their barrel strength expression, The Beverly Reserve.
The Beverly High Rye first released in May 2022, with The Beverly Reserve debuting in October 2023. They have earned widespread acclaim from expert judging panels and world-class bartenders alike, winning seven Gold Medals at prestigious competitions including the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, New York World Spirits Competition, L.A. Spirits Awards and Bartender Spirits Awards.
Our award-winning whiskeys have been warmly embraced by world-class bars, restaurants, hotels and retailers across California, New York, and Tennessee, such as Nobu, Mastro’s, two-Michelin Star restaurant Gabriel Kreuther, 1 Hotels, The Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Wilshire (A Four Seasons Hotel), and K&L Wine Merchants.
We are committed to a sustainable future. Beverly Spirits is an official partner of Trees for the Future in the fight against climate change, food insecurity and poverty.
The Beverly High Rye is aged in barrels made from American oak, trees that are often between 80 and 100 years old before they are turned into barrels. Using these trees enables us to make whiskey, which is why it is our mission to plant one tree for every bottle that we sell.
Trees are lost at a rate of over 50 soccer fields per minute. With over 250 million trees planted, Trees for the Future’s Forest Garden approach provides a sustainable solution that supports impoverished farmers in Senegal, Cameroon, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.
For every bottle sold, one tree is planted, four lbs. of CO2 are removed, four lbs. of organic produce are created, and sixteen square feet of land are restored through our partnership.
