Can You Distill Your Own Liquor at Home?

California Liquor License Laws – Stills

In recent years, hobbyists have found it popular to brew their own beer and wine at home.  In California, you are allowed to make up to 200 gallons of homemade beer or wine per year for your own consumption without the need of a California Liquor License.

But what is the law regarding homemade distilling of spirits?

California law prohibits you not only from making your own hard alcohol (vodka, rum, tequila, etc…), but it is also illegal to even own a still without the proper liquor license.

In addition, any legal beer or wine that you make can not be sold.
