Sun Liquor Distillery: A User’s Guide House-Distilled Spirits | Craft Cocktails |Sandwiches | Weekend Brunch | Housemade Bitters The Food Salad: Northwest salad with mixed greens, apples, toasted almonds, and blue cheese Sandwich: grilled cheese made with Tillamook cheddar and vine-ripened tomatoes on thick sourdough Side: shoestring fries made from Washington potatoes The Booze: Sun Liquor has the unique distinction of being part bar, part restaurant, and part distillery. The latter is the domain of head distiller Erik Chapman, who worked with founder Michael Klebeck to come up with their own distilling processes for gin and vodka. In 2011, they debuted their signature creation, the Hedge Trimmer gin, which they make with nine fresh and dried botanicals. Other award-winning vodkas and gins followed soon after. The Pour: Bartenders take the distillery’s liquor and combine it with fresh-squeezed juices and housemade bitters. They focus mainly on signature cocktails, though they also pour a selection of craft beers, including Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout. When to Go: Stop by on the weekend, when the restaurant serves brunch items such as housemade country-style biscuits and gravy. Press Seattle Met said the Hedge Trimmer gins “had a nice floral nose and were round-bodied and easy-going on the palate.” The Seattle Times noted that “Given that the bar has control over the most important element in a cocktail — the base spirit — bar staff can make cocktails exactly to Sun Liquor's specifications.” Vocab Lesson Grenadine: a common bar syrup characterized by its deep red color and sweet and tart flavors. It’s traditionally made with pomegranate juice and sugar. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Peruse local artwork, or adorn your body with some at True Love Art Gallery (1525 Summit Avenue), which also houses cutting-edge tattoo artists. After: Buy a unique board game or card set at Gamma Ray Games (411 E. Pine Street), which is open late, for post-drink reverly at your apartment. If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Sun Liquor Lounge (607 Summit Avenue), which features the cocktails, but not the food.
