About Desert Diamond Distillery
Desert Diamond Distillery is AZ’s oldest craft distillery. It was established in March of 2009 on a small parcel in the Kingman Airport Industrial Complex. Owned and operated by the Patt family, D3 spent the year building their business from the ground up. D3 opened it’s doors April 1, 2010, and just celebrated their 9th year in business. The Patt family started looking into the liquor industry in 2005. They were mainly thinking wineries or breweries, but they happened to attend a distilling conference and they reconsidered their options. Soon, the distillery option was in the lead and the rest is history! After winning international awards for the last nine years, the Patt family are excited about the possibilities in this industry, and especially in Arizona. The climate is perfect for aging. The production room has a state of the art still from Arnold Holstein in Germany, and the tanks were made and installed from Bavarian Breweries out of CA. This 1000 L still has a double stack and has a semi automation process that was one of the first in the craft industry, designed and implemented by Bavarian-Holstein Partners. Tours are available.
In January of 2017, D3 acquired Heavyweight Business class Pullman Car #30. It arrived at the Kingman facility on Jan 5th, 2018. This car has undergone a “facelift” and has been fully painted on the outside. This has taken us longer than expected, but it is a labor of Love! We are now working on the inside and the results are so amazing we are disappointed we can’t show you yet! Check back in the summer of 2019 to see if we are ready to open Car #30 for public tours!
