Single Malt Whiskey by Westland

Alongside all of those condos and apartments springing up to fill the needs of a growing Seattle tech market are lots of breweries and distilleries to serve the thirsty masses. Westland Distillery is a local standout that has also received global attention from Scottish whisky diehards for its single malt creation. The spirits start their journey in the SODO district of Seattle in the beautifully outfitted Westland distillery space with a grain bill featuring a pale base malt grown in Washington. A select batch of grain is dried and smoked with peat, an old world trick to a smokier profile, for a “peated” malt. On the Olympic Peninsula there is a wealth of peat harvested by the distillery. After fermentation and distillation the alcohol is aged in either New American Oak or Sherry that was harvested in the American south then used as casks for a century in Spain and repurposed back home. Westland wants to make Washington the place you think of for quality whiskey so look out Bill Gates.
