Misadventure & Co is an audacious San Diego distillery that's creating new products for bartenders, while addressing America's food waste crisis.
Contrary to popular belief, vodka can be made from any ingredient that contains the proper proportions of sugar and starch. After combining this research with the fact that 40% of food grown in America ends in a landfill, the distillery sought to improve the current waste system by using compost to distill its quality craft spirits. The company makes weekly trips to the food bank, collecting old bread products that would have otherwise gone to a landfill. After collection, the waste is used to create the boozy end product.
The vodka is both high quality and sustainable, catering to a growing demographic of drinkers who hold businesses accountable for environmental initiatives.
