Founded in 2010
Starting in 2010, Westland Distillery is one of the leaders in American SIngle Malt Whiskey production.

Westland Distillery sits in the heart of Seattle. In the 13,000 sq ft. working facility in the industrial district all spirits are milled, mashed, fermented and distilled.  It has two custom-designed Vendome pot stills, the wash still being 7,560 and spirits still 5,670 litres.

The distillery’s wood program runs a wide spectrum from the new American oak casks, to ex-Bourbon casks, reused ex-Westland casks, Quercus garryana casks and ex-Sherry casks imported whole from Spain. All matuarion and warehousing happens in a rackhouse located in the temperate and humid climate on the coast of Washington state.

Westland Distillery’s American Single Malt Whiskey is made from five different barley malts. Their house style Whiskey is made from roasted malts and is marked by rich flavours of dark fruits, chocolate, pastries, caramel and raisins.

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.

Video transcription
Our forebears saw the West ahead of them. Raw, waiting to be shaped. A place where one could build an idea to match the scale of the surroundings. They were compelled to see the wall of the world as a door to opportunity.

Its immense rawness, a deafening call to work within it. They laid tracks, crossed ranges, launched ships, rounded capes and built cities. Grounded in elemental truths and an ethos of work. Their efforts stand today as monuments to the integrity of their principles.

Now we must carry forward these ideals and interpret them for our own audacious endeavor. It was Providence that led us to make single malt Whiskey here.

To the north and east our rolling plains laid with black fertile soil make the perfect bed for growing barley. Our water fresh and plentiful comes as an offering in the snow-capped ridges that surround us. The coastal air heavy and wise envelops our casks just as it does in a glance of the old world.

Everything about this place was made ready for this. We had only to hear its call and have the courage to accept its challenge.

Our West is Whiskey - not the untamed frontier of yesteryear, but its challenges are real, its landscape still undeveloped. We are compelled to leverage the nature of ourselves with the unique qualities of the nature that surrounds us. To pioneer a new industry for our specific time and place. And so we head out with ambition and resolve to build our future and to shape our West. We are Westland
