After persevering through a maze of bureaucracy for nearly three years, Ron and Olha Dolin now have the distinction of owning the only licensed distillery in New Mexico. “We’re the first people in the state’s history to be licensed,” Ron said during a recent distillery tour. “Los Alamos County and the county council were very helpful and put up no roadblocks.”The Dolins’ Don Quixote Distillery is located on the grounds behind their Pajarito Acres home in White Rock. The brandies they produce, including grappas and piscos, are now on sale at La Vista Restaurant in the Hilltop House Hotel, in upscale restaurants throughout Santa Fe and Albuquerque, in the liquor section of Smith’s Food and Drug Centers in Los Alamos and White Rock, and in liquor stores throughout New Mexico.The Dolins released their first batch of liquor in November. A bottle of their product retails for $34-$49.99, they said. Along with Don Quixote Distillery, Dolin Distillery Inc. does business under the name Spirit of Santa Fe.“The two of us building this together is the best part of the business,” Olha said during a recent visit to her distillery.She and her husband began their journey into the distillery business in 2003. Olha is a native of Ukraine.
