Westland is an American Single Malt Distillery in Seattle, Washington. Their focus has always been on a whiskey made out of 100% malted barley and capturing the terroir of the Pacific Northwest in that process. They have been major advocates in ensuring the definition of American Single Malt is defined and their efforts proved fruitful in late 2021. They use a mixture of Ameican Oak (ex-bourbon), European Oak (ex-sherry), and Garryana (an Oak specifically from the Norwest of the USA, in their maturation. They also work with local farmers to source their grain.
