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 Sherry Wood American Single Malt Whiskey is another highly acclaimed expression from the Westland Distillery. The American Whiskey Masters gave it the Master Award and it won the Gold medal at the Whiskies of the World Awards in American Malt category. Westland Sherry is a decadent Whiskey that spent its time in ex-Sherry barrels, which is quite a tradition in Scotland. But here's a twist: Washington-grown barley is joined by specialty malts and fermented with a Belgian brewer's yeast for 144 hours. The Sherry casks come from Toneleira del Sur in Spain, where Rafael Cabello and his crew have been making high-quality Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherries for almost hundred years. The result is an opulent and fruity Single Malt worth every accolade.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
