Birdview Estate & Distillery is distilling El Castor, a regional spirit of the Costal California. This unique spirit tastes of distinct flavors reflecting of the pacific wild flowers. The native Beaver Tail Cactus, a wild growing succulent is an ideally sustainable plant providing the prickly pear fruit for El Castor. Unlike traditional grapes, fruit, or grain, the plant requires no water nor pesticides, and only minimal maintenance. Additionally, it gives back to the surroundings, in draught times allowing coyotes, foxes, rodents, and birds to survive off of it’s life giving fruit.
