says, "Fascinating way to make award-winning rum and whiskey. I'm excited to try it and visit!"
says, "I'd be more excited about investing if I could get more detail on what specifically it'll facilitate (vs. just bridging T.I. timing). What weird whiskeys happen sooner with more funding?:)"

What Investors Say

Individual Investor
Invested $75,000 this round
Lost Spirits makes great whiskey and great rum.....They make those spirits with a scientific process that accelerates the aging process but spirits still tastes liked they well aged...this is a huge benefit relative to having spirits age in barrels for multiple years... They have a great experiential concept in LA and Las Vegas (this financing helping fund Las Vegas) that would in itself be a great business.. The combination of both makes this a potentially great investment with substantial upside, but which has largely been de-risked.

Forget The Hollywood Studios: Lost Spirits Distillery Is The Best Tour In L.A.
November 12, 2019
Nestled on Sixth Street in the arts district of Downtown L.A., Lost Spirits Distillery is one of those things you have to be in on to even find it. You don't need a password or to pass a velvet rope to get in, just a reservation.

From the outside, the Lost Spirits Distillery is just another boxy, early-20th-century building along the frayed edge of downtown Los Angeles. At first the inside appears similarly uninspired: deep and unfinished, littered with cardboard boxes, plumbing fittings, spools of wire, inscrutable items made of copper, a forklift. The usual crap.
The Madcap Chemists of Booze

You never know what you'll find behind closed doors in Los Angeles. On a steamy summer evening, I meandered through the confusing cultural landscape of the downtown Arts District, skirting the sidewalk "tent city" of Skid Row, sleek hipster bars and empty parking lots, to a desolate row of warehouses on Sixth Street.
