Anchor Distilling Company

 Fritz Maytag was a pioneer first in American craft beer, then in indie spirits. He bought Anchor Brewing in 1965 and lost no time in making it a great brewery, and his San Francisco, California-based distillery followed in 1993. Tony Foglio and Keith Greggor bought the operations from Fritz to be the centerpiece of a small artisanal distilling company, and they are dedicated to keeping the original dedication to traditional techniques and high-quality drinks.
