Mother-daughter duo Trish and Bren Ritchie recently opened One Handsome Bastard Distillery in Old Town Scottsdale. The micro-distillery and family-owned restaurant is located in the former Blue Clover Distillery space. 

The location is more than just a business venture, they say—it's a heartfelt tribute to Brad Ritchie, their late husband and father. Together, they celebrate him, and encourage the community to live life to the fullest. To honor Brad, 10% of profits from One Handsome Bastard Distillery vodka sales will be donated to a local nonprofit to support the fight against cancer.

“One Handsome Bastard Distillery is not just about crafting exceptional spirits but celebrating life and cultivating community,” says Trish. “We invite the Valley to raise a glass with us. It’s for a good cause.”

One Handsome Bastard hand-distills and manufactures its premium, small-batch gin and vodka onsite in partnership with Blue Clover Spirits. In addition to infused vodkas, the menu boasts a wide variety of craft cocktails like the Scottsdale Sunset, made with Blue Clover grapefruit-infused vodka, lemon, Aperol, grapefruit juice, and simple syrup, or the BC Basil, made with Blue Clover gin, agave, elderflower, lemon, and basil. House-made infused vodka flavors include grapefruit, green chile, pepper, lemon, and more.

In addition to the creative cocktails, the menu also includes a variety of elevated bar food offerings, ranging from wings to burgers. Highlights include the Bar Fight Nacho, which include tortilla chips topped with queso, cheddar, black beans, fresh jalapeños, pico de gallo, chipotle crema, and roasted chicken, and the Pine Top Burger, made with balsamic reduced onions, bacon, provolone cheese, and house-made aioli.
