It all started with a chance meeting at a North County San Diego bar between the two founders (Whit Rigali and Samuel Chereskin.) Whit, the bartender, wanted to create local craft spirits as tools for other bartenders. Sam, the Agricultural Economist, wanted to find ways to improve food systems and show that doing good can also be viable. Their conversation over a glass of whiskey led to the creation of Misadventure & Co. These spirits are not just products of 4 years of R&D in a cramped garage, but lessons learned through the San Diego brewing and distilling communities and our wild and wonderful friends and family. We desire to make quality spirits that everyone can enjoy and create them sustainably.
