Description

A diamond in the desert, Desert Diamond Distillery is a real working Distillery. 100% family owned and operated, D3 is located just off scenic Highway 66 at the Kingman Airport. The Distillery is just four miles from I-40, easy to get to for travelers and sightseers alike. The Distillery is one of a few in the state that is open to the public, and has the privilege of having a retail outlet with a famous tasting bar that was rescued from a famous French restaurant on the old Las Vegas strip. This bar was known to be a favorite place of the Rat Pack, and many others of that era back in the day.  All four rums and a vodka are craft certified by the American Distiling Institute (ADI).  That means that all are fermented and distilled 100% by us in Kingman, AZ.  Delicious cocktails include an agave rum margarita (100% made in the USA), mohito's, martini's and others.

For a sampling of D3, check out the blog A Tasting of Kingman's Craft Desert Diamond Distillery at Passportsandcocktails.com.

We invite you to tour a working Distillery. We make four types of rum, a vodka, and now two whiskey's.  Included is a delicious clear White Rum, our award winning Dark Rum, and our customer favorite, the Agave Rum, as well as our consistent Medal winner the Barrel Reserve Rum (a 3 year and a 5 year).  We also make very smooth sugar can based Vodka!  Our whiskey's are the newest addition (2019) and our 7 year wheat whiskey is already winning awards!  Our clear corn whiskey is the baby of the bunch, released in October of 2019.
You will see our production area, our barrel area and warehouse, as well as our retail area, which has many varied and logo'd gifts that are made in Arizona.   

Spirits:

Gold Miner White Rum:  Signature rum with a full bouquet of vanillas, finishing slightly sweet and definitely smooth.  Great for mixing your favorite drink, cooking and making desserts, or just sitting back and having a relaxing drink on the rocks. Recipient of the 2011 SIP (Spirits International Prestige) Awards Bronze Medal.

Gold Miner Dark Rum:  Signature White Rum aged with white American oak and French oak. This rum’s inherent simplicity and subtle flavors distinguish it from other rums, earning it a 2010 Ministry of Rum Bronze Medal and 2011 SIP Awards Platinum Medal.

Gold Miner Agave Rum:  Award-winning Gold Miner Dark Rum with delicate hints of Agave for an after-dinner sipping rum.  Recipient of the 2011 SIP Awards Silver Medal.

Gold Miner Barrel Reserve Rum:  First bottled in February of 2012, this unique taste garnered a GOLD medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in March of 2012.  The aroma is sweet and spicy. The taste is smooth and well developed, with hints of spice, licorice and a background of oak aged vanillas. It finishes smooth, yet firm with a full bodied taste that rum drinkers look for.  Each bottle is labelled with the barrel number and the bottle number. 

Gold Miner Vodka:  Rum is further refined to a vodka with the smoothest flavor possible. Hard-core Vodka connoisseurs have a look of concentration on their faces when they taste this Vodka, which has a very clean and smooth taste. Recipient of the 2011 SIP Awards Silver Medal.

Gold Miner 7 Year Wheat Whiskey:
Fermented, Distilled, Aged and Bottled under the D3 roof, this special Whiskey is the oldest whiskey to be released in Arizona.  This is a 100% wheat whiskey, similar to Canadian whiskey's - yet with that AZ twist due to the micro-climates here that age our barrels like none other around the world.  Gold Medal - LA Spirit Competition - 2019.
Gold Miner Corn Whiskey: 
"White - off the still" - by popular demand! Fermented, Distilled and Bottled under the D3 roof, this deliciously tasty whiskey is by popular demand.  Originally made to "just age in the barrel", somehow a sample made it's way to the bar, and the rest is history.
