For five generations, Nathan Kaiser's family has worked the same stretch of land at the 2bar Ranch in South Texas. While Nathan's grandfather continues to run the ranch, his grandson has struck out on his own to open 2bar Spirits. Still, he draws on his family's dedication to local ingredients. To make their handcrafted batches, Nathan and his head distiller depend entirely on Washington state farmers. Corn and malted barley distill into each sip of 2bar Moonshine, while wheat and malted barley flavor pours of award-winning 2bar Vodka, and their 2bar Bourbon is handmade with all local grains. Nathan and his team happily lead tours throughout their on-site distillery, and bartenders distribute samples of their spirits inside 2bar's wood-paneled tasting room. They've even been named by Seattle Magazine as one of the "top Washington moonshines to sip", and their Spirits Bourbon Whiskey Batch 11 is their longest-aged batch yet.
