ELLENSBURG DISTILLERY

Distillery
Founded in 2008
Ellensburg Distillery was founded in 2008 at the time this was the second licensed Washington State's distillery.

Co-owner Rusty Figgins made a make-shift still using 2 grundy tanks, which are typically used in Beer brewing.

His unique contraption which was born out of necessity, turned out to have many benefits compared to a regular run-of-the-mill still.

After years of experimenting Figgins perfected his invention, which has since become an integral part in many distilleries across the nation, producing everything from Whiskey to Vodka.

This special still not only heats up faster, it is far more effecient in extracting alcohol, eliminating the need for a second distillation.

The unique machine has helped Ellensburg Distillery in making various Spirits  from Wildcat White Whiskey to White Horse Vodka, Brandy, and Gin.

Among their award-winning Spirits and fine Brandies is their signature Amethyst Gin, distilled the old-fashioned way, they begin with traditional botanicals, and then add a hint of their own farm-grown lavender.

Their smooth Whiskey is made from corn, wheat and barley.

Going dry around 1914, the town of Ellensburg was actually one of the first cities in Washington state to ban the sale of alcohol.
