Devils Creek Distillery is owned and operated by the Mendel family in Mammoth Lakes, California. Avid skiers and hikers, owners John and Luan owned a home in Mammoth Lakes for fifteen years before making it their permanent residence in 2013.

In April 2017, John retired from a 41-year career in the automobile industry to pursue what Automotive News described as a "spirited retirement." Long a lover of small-batch scotches and bourbons, John decided the time was right to enter the burgeoning craft distilling movement.

Devils Creek Distillery draws its name from Luan's novel, Yard Sale, which is set in the fictional ski town of Devils Creek, California. Inspired by the unique and rugged beauty of the Eastern Sierra, the story focuses on the quirks and challenges of life in a ski resort. The town's-and now the distillery's-name is a mashup of local landmarks Devils Postpile National Monument and Mammoth Creek.

Stop by the tasting room on Friday and Saturdays (plus Sundays on holiday weekends) or schedule a private tasting outside of normal business hours.
