Spirit of Oakland is a collaborative project series that connects Oakland artists with local small businesses. The collaboration is a true expression of creativity and community in Oakland.

In 2022 we collaborated with Home Base Spirits, a female-founded and Bay Area based artisanal spirits business supporting local artists. Together, the collaboration celebrates 2022 with the theme Silver Linings. Through our public Call For Artists, we will select an Oakland-based artist to design a custom label for a limited edition, special release bottling of Home Base Spirit’s flagship bourbon. Our winning artist is Ari Takata-Vasquez whose artwork is featured on the Silver Linings bottle!

Bottles will be available for a limited time only and can be purchased locally at the following locations:

Alkali Rye – Oakland’s Beverage Shop – Oakland

Wine on Piedmont – Oakland

Or you can have the bottle shipped directly to you here!
