What began as a casual comment between two friends from West Seattle has now matured into the realization of an age-old dream; legally making spirits in the Pacific Northwest. ”The moonshine tradition runs strong in the Tatoosh founders’ family history. His Scottish-Irish ancestors brought their skills and knowledge of whiskey-making with them as they settled in the state of Louisiana. Conditions in the area were good for growing grains, but it didn’t take long for his Great Great Grandfather to realize a lot more money could be made off of a gallon of grain liquor than a bushel of grain.
The Pacific Northwest provides ideal conditions for making quality handcrafted spirits; a perfect climate, the purest natural mountain water, quality grains, and consumers who are passionate about small-batch artisanal products. From grain to glass, we take great care with all of our spirits. We’re proud to have captured a local flavor while leaving a smaller footprint on the environment.
These days, we don’t have to hide from the law to make our ‘shine on the bank of a back creek in the woods. We have replaced the old Fords and Chevys with modern semi-trucks for hauling, and the law is not looking to confiscate and destroy our stills. Yes indeed, things are looking clear and bright here in the Emerald City of Seattle, Washington.
