True Wild West Single Malt.
 
Not far away from Elliott Bay, a bold new distillery was established in 2010 by two childhood friends: Master Distiller Matt Hoffman and CEO Emerson Lamb. They called it Westland Distillery and their Spirits embody the nature of the Pacific Northwest. Matt, as many other Whiskey-makers, went to Scotland and absolutely fell in love with the Single Malt. The distillery's two copper pot stills create the core American Single Malt Whiskey, which is made using malted barley, at a single distillery, just like in Scotland - except American laws are laxer and allow more experimentation.
 
Westland American Oak Single Malt Whiskey is made from five marvellous roasted and kilned barley malts - barley is of course grown in the state of Washington. Then, there's a not-so-secret secret: specialty malts are added before the final mash is fermented with a Belgian brewer's yeast for six day. The Spirit is matured in a combo of Cooper's Select New American Oak, Cooper's Reserve New American Oak, and first fill ex-bourbon barrels. American Oak Single Malt won multiple awards, including a Gold Medal at Beverage Tasting Institute, while Jim Murray have it 95 points.

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.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
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.
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.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
