And so we head out, with ambition and resolve, to build our future and to shape our West.

Our west may not be the wild untamed frontier of yesteryear, but its challenges are real, its landscape still undeveloped. In whiskey there is still much to build and we stand now in our place of shared history to pursue our own audacious endeavor. And so we head out, with ambition and resolve, to build our future and to shape our West.

EXPLORING PROVENANCE

American Single Malt Whiskey is, by its very nature and existence, innovative. That said, we don’t innovate for the sake of innovation. We remain committed to expressing our provenance, but recognize the opportunity to contribute new ideas to the landscape of single malt whiskey.

Transparency in Production

We will tell you everything. At Westland we are unequivocally transparent about our whiskies, their origins and their construction because at the heart of everything is a truth to be proud of. If you have questions we haven't answered below please reach out directly using the Contact page.
