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.
Scott Sell, our Distillery Manager, leads the production team at Westland and has worked each step of the process along the way. One of the original members of our team, he has seen it all and tasted it all. Selecting a cask for this program led him back to our roots; New American oak barrels with our house mash-bill of five different malted barleys. There's a reason this combination is the backbone of our whiskey stocks and why this cask stands out from so many others.

This cask has some miles under its belt. First filled in Hoquiam, WA in October 2013, it was shipped back to Seattle almost immediately in order to act as a backdrop to countless events and tours passing through the cask room of the distillery. In February of 2016 we decided to refresh the casks on display, and sent #745 - along with all its dunnage-mates - back to Hoquiam. Many other casks in the 700-range benefited from this extended rest in the controlled climate of the distillery and have also been selected for our single cask program over the years.
