Our unique process

The foundation of Portuguese Bend starts with the process in which we craft our spirits. From the responsible farming and sourcing of our ingredients through the distilling and bottling of our spirits, our integrity is visible through all avenues of our brand experience.

Our namesake

100 years of resistance

The Portuguese Bend area of Palos Verdes, CA was a favorite landing spot during Prohibition with requent visits from brazen smugglers transporting contraband. The shores were dotted with caves and crevasses that provided shelter and storage for smugglers in addition to a dirt road that connected it easily to the surrounding cities for distribution. It became a critical area to the success of  rum running operations in Southern California and ultimately coined the name “Smuggler’s Cove.”
