our story

A Glimpse Behind the Door

Our Beginnings

The story of our beginning, is not one of destiny, but one of innovation and self-motivation. Co-founders Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall, started the Cerberus Craft Distillery with the Dark Door Spirits Brand and one simple goal in mind: to create a damn good product. Marshall and Allen realized they had authentic ideas, and the ability, conviction and means to make those ideas a reality. 

The Spirit of IPA was our first spirit to hit the market in the summer of 2016. Later, we soon found our niche which is creating unexpectedly delicious spirits for those who desire something outside the industry norms. 

our Mission

Since it’s beginning, the world of distilled spirits has been often restricted to the status quo, enforcing industry standards that were developed years ago.

At Dark Door Spirits, we constantly aim to break that glass ceiling. Improving on the tradition of distilling spirits by combining forgotten techniques with unique and inspired new ideas.

While we will never sacrifice excellence for the sake of something new, we will always continue to challenge ourselves to find excellent new flavors that lead to a wonderfully, unexpected drinking experience.

who we are today

We are driven by our core values of innovation, authenticity, and superior quality. We are artisans that care deeply about the craft of distilling spirits and strive for that unparalleled passion to shine through our products.

Our main goal is to give you a spirit that makes you glad you chose something different than the usual.
