Top-notch Sherry-inspired Seattleite
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.
