bar specializing in infused spirits?

has anyone heard of or been to a bar in the bay area specializing in artisanal, infused spirits? my brother and i just came across a really interesting bar in lima, peru. (the name is trapiche, if you're in the area -- av. grau 201, barranco.) they use cane liquor as a base, and have about 75 different infusions -- many herbal, but also wood and even roots. my favorites were oregano and uña de gato ("cat's nail"). the bartender is wonderful -- go early if you can, we were the only ones there, so he was able to sit at our table and tell us about his business and his product.

i know that froufrou vodka infusions are big these days, but has anyone come across anything like this?
