Hangar 1®

About Hangar 1®

Hangar 1®, an American vodka, is created one batch at a time using fresh, in-season ingredients and innovative techniques. Hangar 1® was born in a repurposed former WWII aircraft hangar on the Alameda Naval Air Station — a real piece of California history — that serves as its hub of innovation. It’s where the Hangar 1® team uses the freshest ingredients to create unique, epicurean flavors like Mandarin Blossom®, Makrut Lime, Buddha’s Hand Citron™ and Rosé.
