    This is actually the second time we gotten the award in the three years it has been running…
    Congrats. However, isn't "Craft Whisky Distillery of the Year" sort of like "Special Olympics"?

    If you want to think about it that way. This is one of nearly 100 accolades the distillery has received in just 5 years, including Global Distiller of the Year by the Wizards of Whisky

    Global Distiller of the Year has a certain ring to it.

    Opened my first bottle of True Blue last night and man does this have some kick! Had three delicious pours.

    Probably coming late to the game here but have you made it up this way (WA state) or do you have plans to anytime soon? My wife and I enjoy supporting the smaller distillers (we really enjoy Woodinville Whiskeys products) and your products sound right up our alley, especially the single malt. Sadly the local stores only have a few of your releases and they tend to be quite pricey, the single malt is ~$85 after taxes! I want to order some from out of state but don't know where to start so I figured a tasting would be an awesome way to figure it out!

    Hey, it does not hurt to ask, right?

    We do need to make our way up to Seattle soon... just don't know when at this point. Probably first quarter next year.

    Picked up the Single Malt and True Blue last week. I had a few pours of each and still trying to figure out what I think of the Single Malt. I do think the True Blue is very interesting and tasty.
