Meriwether Distilling Company

Owner and distiller Whitney D. Meriwether has always had a passion for the finer things. When a three month backpacking trip through Europe turned into a two year stay, Whitney began developing his spirit palate. Enjoying a variety of Scotch and fine Irish Whisky, his love for quality spirits grew. This appreciation partnered with his inherent habit of building things, led to the dream of someday making his own whiskey.

In May 2008, Whitney donated 62% of his liver to a family member suffering from terminal bile duct cancer*. This kind of life altering event brings everything into perspective. During recovery, Whitney and his recipient John spent weeks recuperating in the same living room together. Both entrepreneurs, they regularly discussed the possibility of making their own spirits. The idea stuck and after a few years of research, Whitney decided it was time to open a distillery.

Joining a long line of brewers and craftsman dating back to the pre-prohibition era, we make our booze at the Original Rainier Brewery in the Georgetown district of Seattle.

In the tradition of our liquor forefathers, we aim to enrich our community by providing superior, locally made products. Using only top quality ingredients and artisan methods, we honor the rich history of distilling, while blazing a trail of modern ingenuity.

We invite you to walk with us as we establish our footprint in Seattle’s storied history of artisan entrepreneurs.

“There can’t be good living where there is no good drinking.” -Benjamin Franklin
