Our Story

Nirmal Singh Malhi and his son Davinder Singh Malhi immigrated to the US in the mid-80s for a better life. They worked two shifts daily to save money to buy a business of their own. During the day, they worked in fields in Livingston, CA, and at night they worked at multiple dairies in Hilmar, CA.

They saved enough money to buy the first Liquor store in 1993 in Modesto, CA. From the late 90s to 2000, Davinder transitioned his traditional liquor store into a Tequila-focused store.

The third generation has moved their original store to San Francisco, and thus, SF Tequila Shop has found a new home in Bernal Heights.
