Story of Origin

Story of Origin

The origins of Storyhouse Spirits was founded by passionate crafters Matt Kidd and Steve Kuftinec.

Before there was whiskey, there was beer. Matt ‘Woody’ Kidd passionately moonlit as a craft brewer until his thirst for whiskey became insatiable. His career in the United States Marine Corps fueled his interests as he traveled, sampling whiskeys of the world at every opportunity while his distilling mentors helped hone his skills over the years. 

Leading Salt Lake City’s premier brewery for a dozen years, Steve Kuftinec brought his sales and distribution skills, that helped grow a small microbrewery into a nationwide Top 50 craft brewery, out west to team up with 'Woody'.

With years of experience in distilling, sales and distribution under their belts, this duo has created Storyhouse Spirits to share their craft and bring you and amazing connected experience from grain to glass. 

Now It's Your Turn

We founded Storyhouse Spirits on the belief that friendships grow when we gather, share memories, and toast to our lives. While it looks like we’re just meticulously crafting small batch spirits in San Diego’s East Village, we’re secretly doing our part creating a more unified community. Bring your friends, and make some new ones. Let’s all celebrate the lives we share together. #storyhousespirits
