Reserved exclusively for visitors to the distillery in Seattle, Washington, this series of single cask releases features a rotation of casks hand-chosen by our blender, production team and various tastemakers.
Each bottle is hand-filled at cask strength on-site then corked, numbered and labeled individually.
Shane has been working at Westland Distillery since 2012. He currently blends all bottlings including the series of Garryana and Peat Week releases. Outside of the distillery you will find Shane and his dog Stringer enjoying the great outdoors through mountain biking and climbing.

5-Malt spirit in used casks constitutes a very small amount of our stocks. This type of cask allows one to explore the influence of roasted malts in the 5-malt spirit without typical fresh oak flavors competing for attention. This cask is also unique in that it spent a portion of its maturation right here in Seattle instead of our rackhouse in Hoquiam. Cask #885 is another step in the pursuit to identify the contributions roasted malts bring to single malt whiskey.
