ARTISANAL VODKA

A FEW WORDS

ABOUT US

PAUL RYAN ELLIOTT

Founder.  Regular guy.  UNC – Chapel Hill Graduate.  Love for Vodka.

Set out with a strong desire to create and innovate within the beverage space.  During the summer of 2014, in a loft in downtown LA, loft&bear artisanal vodka was born, hence the name, loft&bear.  Paul continues to work toward fulfilling long-term sustainable success and having an impact within the business space. 

Asks himself:

How we can build business with more diversity and inclusion – how do we cultivate more ownership?

Will Hollywood ever make a Back to the Future Part IV?

GAGE

South Central Los Angeles

Small businesses have long been the backbone of Los Angeles. When it came time to look into options for our expansion, as a black-owned, small business, South LA made perfect sense. We were looking for a space that would allow us to continue to grow, while at the same time, contribute to the community...the new distillery located on Gage fit the bill. Our new home will allow visitors to view the distilling process, taste our product, and learn more about our commitment to the community - all under the same roof. We can't wait to welcome you to our new home!
