Seattle, WA Edition: Bainbridge Organic Distillers

BainBridge organic distillersI'm told that there a few must-dos in Seattle - one being to take a ferry. So, we took one of the shorter ferry rides to Bainbridge Island and did a little sipping while there. 

BainBridge organic distillersWe stopped at Bainbridge Organic Distillers, which has been recognized for having the best craft whiskey.
Bainbridge Organic Distillers was founded as a family business in 2009, and since the beginning we perform every task in the making of distilled spirits on site, and with our own hands. From the selection of grain varieties and lots, to grinding, mashing, fermenting and distillation we are hands-on at every stage in the small-batch spirits production process. Bainbridge Organic Distillers was Washington State's first distillery producing USDA Certified Organic spirits, and we are the state's only distillery producing 100% of its organic spirits from scratch, on site in our own distillery. We are very proud to have launched the state's first organic vodkas, whiskey and gin. We favor working with other local, family-owned companies, and we strive to make sure that every step in our process is as environmentally neutral as possible and is sustainably and responsibly managed.
