Westland Distillery comes into its own style with a rugged, new American Single Malt.

Westland Distilling was founded by two friends — Matt Hofmann and Emerson Lamb in 2010 just as the craft distilling trend was kicking off in Seattle. Business took off like bang-busters as they garnered thousand of fans of their new, west-coast style Single Malts. They became one of the “Big 3” Spirits success stories in Washington State and local entrepreneurial heroes, which got the attention of Anchor Distilling in San Francisco who took them national with their exclusive distribution network. In 2016, French luxury goods maker Rémy Cointreau purchased them — grain, still and barrel — but Matt Hofmann is still at the stills, making the products he loves.

Coldfoot American Single Malt Whiskey is named after a remote Alaskan gold camp that became the rugged town of Coldfoot, Alaska. Westland Distillery has partnered with outdoor clothier Filson to create a rugged Single Malt Whiskey and companion gear to go with it that matched the hearty Spirit of those pioneer miners.

The Whiskey is an extremely limited edition — the distillery has announced just 978 bottles in total! The Single Malt is native Washington grain of five barley varieties that have been well peated. It is aged in a combination of Oloroso Sherry casks, ex-Bourbon barrels, and new American oak for five years and bottled at a powerful 50% ABV to keep you warm on the frontier.

Smartass corner: 
Two thousand miners set out to stake their claim. After one year, only two hundred remained — the rest got "cold feet" and returned home without any gold. The story goes that this is how the remote town got its name.

Westland fills casks made from Garry Oak - the native oak species that only grows in the Pacific Northeast. It is extremely rare as the oak now grows only in five percent of its former habitat, therefore Westland is actively engaged in restoration projects.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
