Nathan & Bryan with White Hjerte and Black Hjerte

As friends, bandmates, business partners, we have spent most of our lives creating together. Whether it was making records, touring, publishing books, forming music companies; we’ve lived by our wits and to the beat of our own drum.

Most of our time has been spent around the Hollywood Hills area. Our families enjoying good times together; which of course includes great coffee, spirits, food and friends.

Following our creative instincts, we became interested in making our own drinks to go with the communal meals. From the beginning we’ve been obsessed with great coffee, so a natural thought was to create our own coffee drink.

With this idea, we started hand-brewing small batches seasonally for friends and family. The growing demand led us to bring our own hand-crafted coffee liqueur – made with hjerte – to the world. Laurel Canyon Spirits, and our Black Hjerte Coffee Liqueur, was born.

A family recipe in every sense of the word, our Black Hjerte is still small batch and handmade. We distill a 100% California Corn vodka, use Peet’s Coffee beans pressed wicked strong, and add the finest locally sourced sugars and spices.

Our White Hjerte vodka is a California corn sipping vodka. Small batch and handmade, it’s super smooth and clean with notes of vanilla and creme brûlée. A version of White Hjerte is the base for all of our spirits.

The newest edition to our line is Cold Black Hjerte coffee liqueur. It uses a proprietary cold brew method, is coffee forward, earthy from our Sumatra beans, and fully delicious.

All of our spirits are great straight up or as muses for your favorite cocktails.

We hope Laurel Canyon Spirits becomes as much a part of your good times as they have ours.
