Hear about San Diego's very own, You & Yours Distillery Co. from owner Laura Johnson '14! We'll be asking Laura about how the company began, how its pivoting in today's environment, and how alumni can support the company.

This event is sponsored by the San Diego Torero Club.

Here's to supporting alumni - owned businesses! 

More on Laura and You & Yours:

With a passion for distilling, a natural talent for building and highlighting flavors, and her innate hospitality and business prowess, Laura is a strong voice and advocate in the spirits industry.Opened to the public in 2017, You & Yours Distilling Co. is California’s first urban destination distillery. With You & Yours, Laura strives to not only provide high-quality, transparent spirits made with sustainable practices and top-notch ingredients, but also a welcoming and enjoyable tasting experience for all, which she also felt was missing from the craft distilling industry as a whole. A line of canned cocktails became available at the end of 2018 and today all You & Yours products can be found not just behind the bar and in retailers in California, but also throughout the United States. Since launching the company, Laura has been named a 2018 Eater Young Gun, made it onto the 2018 Forbes “30 Under 30” list, and has won ‘Best Local Spirit’ by San Diego Magazine in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Laura has also become an invaluable resource and inspiration for other new small businesses looking to penetrate the beverage and hospitality industries.
