Anchor Distilling Company, based on Potrero Hill in San Francisco, was established just over 20 years ago in 1993, but has a long history connected to it before that. The first owner of Anchor Distilling Company, Frederick Louis Maytag III (also known as Fritz), established it as a parallel business to his already thriving Anchor Brewing Company. The expansion of the Brewery in 1979, when Fritz moved it to the current location where it still resides today, meant that he was able to do expand the business, giving himself the title of owning the first brewery in the world with it’s own in-house distillery.
