Hamilton Distillers

In 2006, while drinking Scotch and barbecuing over mesquite scraps from our long-time custom furniture company, Arroyo Design, we had a thought: why couldn’t we malt barley over a mesquite fire instead of a peat fire, as they do in Scotland? Could we combine the Scottish model of whisky-making with the well known aroma and flavor that our native mesquite offers? Today we are Hamilton Distillers, a small batch distillery in Tucson, Arizona, specializing in regional single-malt whiskey.

Whiskey Del Bac is handcrafted using a copper pot still and our own house-malted barley.
