1350 Distilling is proud to announce new California strategic partnerships with Donaghy Sales, a family-owned and operated beverage distributor servicing Central California and Danner Drinks Company, a multi-state sales team of brand-building professionals. This partnership marks a pivotal moment for 1350 Distilling, as it allows us to bring our top-quality distilled spirits to a broader audience across dozens of Central California counties.

This new development coincides with the addition of two new business partners to 1350 Distilling. Ryan and Barbara Ferrer, of Long Beach, California. They invested in our growing business just under a year ago assisting our plans to expand into The Golden State.

Coincidentally, Donaghy Sales is headquartered in Fresno, California where Kandis and Phill Bragg grew up. They are both graduates of McLane High School in Fresno and attended California State University, Fresno. Kandis received a BA in Psychology and Phill a BS in Mechanical Engineering. They have many family members still residing in the valley.

The similarities do not stop there. Owner, Jake Weien grew up and graduated from Manteca High School, in the center of Donaghy Sales' territory. Afterwards he attended San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, California for two years. Donaghy Sales has a warehouse in Stockton, which is where our first shipment of 1350 Spirits was delivered this week.
