Three friends are coming home...

The story of the Hollyood Distillery ultimately is a story about three friends coming home. It all started in 2016, when Larry Neuberg, Jeff Zarrinnam and Ferris Wehbe were brought together by a shared passion for Hollywood and its vibrant community, as well as a high appreciation for the art of crafting fine spirits. United by this unique blend of similar passions, they embarked on a remarkable journey, determined to create a premium line up of spirits honoring the city of Hollywood.

With the goal in mind to become experts in the field, they traveled to various countries like Cuba, for example, to get to know the process as well as the culture and people that create certain spirits.

Through years of experimenting, they also taught themselves how to ferment, age and distill liquor the best way possible.

With all the newly gained knowledge and their passion for Hollywood as well as the world of spirits, they are now finally unveiling their creations to the public.

These spirits, like Hollywoods history, are rich and complex, steeped in tradition yet embracing innovation, with flavors dancing on the palate like a perfectly choreographed scene from a classic film.

Moreover, their products are a nostalgic bridge to the “glory days of Hollywood”, allowing their customers to step back in time and relive what the city once was. Also, their mission is to continue writing the citys story alongside their customers to lead Hollywood back to what it once was – and what it is becoming.

In essence, the Hollywood Distillery is more than a company producing spirits, it is a toast to friendship, a tribute to a beloved city, and a symbol of the enduring spirit that brought three friends together on a quest to share their passion with the world. It is a story of coming home, of preserving the past while continuing to script the future, one sip at a time.
