  • Sodo Spirits
    Shochu, a calorically-light grain alcohol popular for hundreds of years in Japan, isn't very well known in the states. Sodo Spirits Distillery aims to change that. The distillery ferments Shochu in small batches, the way it was done in Japan back in the 1600s, with one small exception—Sodo handcrafts their version of "Japanese Moonshine" from local ingredients. Distillers combine pearled Barley from Washington's eastern fields with Koji fungus—the key traditional ingredient—to create the alcohol's signature flavor. Then, they dress up the mixture with field grown herbs and spices, such as fresh spearmint and fresh ginger. With a clear color and smooth finish, it makes an ideal mixer in fruity drinks or the ideal filling for the Hemingway Society's office water cooler. Business Basics Cuisine Type: Shochu: most popular alcohol in Japan Established: 2009 Reservations: Not offered Handicap Accessible: No Parking: Parking lot Most popular offering: Rosemary and/or Ginger Outdoor Seating: No

  • Letterpress Distillery
    As a college art student, Skip Tognetti fell in love with an old printing press, which he used to handcraft his own graduation announcements. At the critically acclaimed Letterpress Distilling, he now creates libations from locally sourced grains to make drinks that evoke the same handcrafted quality. To make Letterpress's signature vodka, he distills Washington-grown wheat and two-row barley into smooth liquor that lingers with just a hint of vanilla. That vodka, in turn, is a primary ingredient in his limoncello, hailed by Clare Gordon of The Stranger as "the best limoncello I've ever tasted." Lemons and Washington blackberry honey contribute the spirit's remaining flavors, which pay homage to the limoncello that was a fixture of Skip's family dinners back in Rome.

  • 2bar Spirits
    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.

  • Dry County Distillery
    Not many distilleries would invite their customers to bring in their great-great-grandfather's moonshine recipe so they can try to reproduce it. But at Dry County Distillery, community, attention to detail, and something called "alcohol" are the not-so-secret ingredients that go into every bottle. Owned by the Johnston family, the small distillery focuses on quality instead of quantity while crafting small batches of vodka and gin. And that focus is paying off—Sip Northwest Magazine recently crowned their Black Rope Anise liqueur as "Best Herbal" in the region.
