Drop by San Francisco’s #1 Craft Spirits Store, The Epicurean Trader, for an opportunity to taste some fantasic, locally made bourbon!

We will be hosting Home Base Spirits for the day with back-to-back free tastings at both our Cow Hollow store (1909 Union St) from 3-5pm and our Bernal Heights store from 5.30-7.30pm (401 Cortland Ave). 

Based in Oakland, Home Base Spirits produce a bourbon made from organic corn grown in Sacramento, along with secondard grains of rye and malted barley to produce a smooth, grain-forward bourbon.

Home Base Spirits is the brainchild of twin sisters, Alexandra and Samantha, who were born and raised in Oakland. Always interested in the arts and crafting, they also share a love of whiskey and cocktails. Combining Alexandra’s background in executing public arts projects and Samantha’s experience working for small family farms, Home Base Spirits makes unique, quality whiskies and liqueurs from local and sustainable ingredients.


The Epicurean Trader was recently named ‘Best Spirits Store in the Bay Area’ by San Francisco Magazine; is one of the top-rated specialty food stores in San Francisco; and has also been named ‘Best Neighborhood Market in San Francisco’ and one of the top wine stores in San Francisco by’.

We are dedicated entirely to craft products: craft spirits; organic and sustainable wines; farmstead cheeses and charcuterie; small batch chocolates, coffees, teas and pantry items.

We hand select artisan products from across America for their dedication to the craft, their incredible flavors and fusions, natural ingredients and beautiful packaging. 

Our goal is to be a brand ambassador for these smaller brands, sharing their unique stories, and bringing many of them to San Francisco for the first time.
