Sun Liquor Distillery: A User’s Guide
House-Distilled Spirits | Craft Cocktails |Sandwiches | Weekend Brunch | Housemade Bitters
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.
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.”
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.

At Liberty, bartending is about much more than just mixing drinks. It’s also about making ingredients such as bitters and tinctures.

All this isn’t surprising, considering owner Andrew Friedman is the president and cofounder of the Washington State Bartenders’ Guild.
