Vintage Distilling Has Become An Award Winning Spirits Company With Their Secret Weapons, Authenticity & Honey. 

by | May 25, 2023

There has been a shift in the way people are buying clothes, eating out and even drinking their cocktails. There is a demand for authenticity. For years big companies and “chains” have ruled our buying habits but now that is all changing. Consumers want home grown, craftsmanship, and want to know where their products come from.

Vintage Distilling, is doing just that! Focused on producing premium spirits, their Handcrafted Vodka and Honey Vodka are made in the heart of Los Angeles. The family-owned spirits company founded by husband and wife Erik and Silvija Dudor, has garnered popularity for their distinct take on “homebrew”, which has become their recipe for success.

“We were making this product for years, and it all started with my parents and grandparents, who were making their own versions,” says Erik Dudor, founder of Vintage Distilling. 

For Erik, it was about taking inspiration from the traditional Lithuanian family recipe of Krupnikas and elevating it – making it modern and premium quality.

In 2017 with the steady growth of breweries and open markets, Vintage Distilling found their niche and started creating the buzz with their company’s signature product: Honey Vodka. Before their success, the couple encountered challenges but that didn’t stifle their determination as they could see where the business could go.

“It was a long journey, from finding the right location to navigating permits and licenses, the business was years in the making. Not only that, by the time we started, Covid hit.” Says Erik. 

Vintage Distilling met the obstacles of Covid – 19 like so many companies. But, even with the drawbacks they were determined to create their own distinct brand. They were fortunate enough to be able to relaunch the brand last year in 2022. Erik tells the Los Angeles Inquisitor, “It was a blessing and a curse at the same point. But at the end of the day, we came out of COVID alright and things seem to be rolling in the right direction right now.” 

Like the rest of us, the couple strives to balance the line between running the company and family life. Erik says, “We work around the clock for Vintage Distilling… we don’t have any employees at the moment, so everything falls on our shoulders… making it, bottling, selling, deliveries, marketing, social media, events etc.  and we manage to do all that while raising our two toddlers, life is crazy but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Vintage Distilling has 2 offerings, a classic vodka which is silky smooth but the star of the show is definitely the award winning honey vodka. Their company was awarded multiple accolades by the Wine Enthusiast, SIP awards and the San Francisco International Spirits Competition. The Honey Vodka is made from natural honey and without additives. Vintage Distilling created a sweet kick to the tastebuds that offsets what you would expect from a traditional vodka.

“It’s the honey that’s coming through, and it’s defining how the vodka tastes, “ says Silvija. From the beginning, Vintage Distilling’s has sourced their honey from Sue Bee Honey ( Sioux Honey Co-op)  for their products. “ We stick with them because we know that we’re going to get a consistent product ,” says Silvija. 

Erik and Silvija Dudor know the key to success is giving back to their community. One such partnership is with the Bee Kind Foundation. The non-profit organization seeks to educate communities and inspire beekeepers in ways to protect honeybees for the future.

Small business is the backbone of our community and Vintage Distilling is making an incredible name for themselves for premium quality vodkas made locally. The Los Angeles gives Vintage Distilling 5 stars for quality, craftsmanship and taste!
