Woodinville Port Finished Straight Bourbon Whiskey
The story of Woodinville doesn’t begin with a 100-year-old recipe or generations of family distillers. It begins with two best friends and a dream.
The dream is to make the greatest craft whiskey in the world by bringing the time-honored traditions of bourbon production into a craft environment — using the highest quality locally grown grains, the best barrels and coopers in the world, the most technologically advanced distilling equipment, and the mentorship of an industry icon, David Pickerell, former Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark.
And while the story is still unfolding, after being awarded “Craft Whiskey of the Year” and “Craft Rye Whiskey of the Year” two years in a row by the American Distilling Institute, things are headed in the right direction.
This truly small-batch bourbon starts with traditionally grown corn, rye, and malted barley. All of our staple grains are cultivated exclusively for us on the Omlin Family farm in Quincy, Washington. The grains are mashed, distilled, and barred in our Woodinville distillery, then trucked back over the Cascade Mountains to our private barrel houses, where Central Washington’s most extreme temperature cycles promote the extraction of natural flavors from the oak. Prior to being coopered, the barrel wood is seasoned in open air, rain, wind, sun and snow for eighteen months, softening the woods harsh tannins. The barrels are then slowly toasted and heavily charred to further entice the woods desirable flavors. After the whiskey is fully mature, we transfer it into freshly emptied Port barrels The Port finishing process adds a viscous mouthfeel with notes of candied cherry, dried plums, berries and chocolate complimenting the traditional bourbon flavor characteristics.
