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 is a wonderful concoction with added specialty malts fermented with a Belgian brewer's yeast for six days, crafted from a version of Westland house malt style, and made from immensely smoky peat. The Spirit opens a pleasant peat landscape with the malt-forward profile that rounds of the smoke. Coming from fresh American oak casks and barrels that used to hold Bourbon adds a lovely new angle to the world of peated Whiskeys.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
