It started with two friends and big dreams, and while Woodinville Whiskey’s story is still unfolding, they have already won many accolades, including “Craft Whiskey of the Year” and “Craft Rye Whiskey of the Year” by the American Distilling Institute. Established in 2010, this young company has steadily grown in sales and notoriety, making their mark on the world stage. We are fortunate to have an award-winning, small batch distillery in our “back yard.”

Please join us for a special 5-course paired dinner, led by Brand Ambassador Garrett Epling, and Executive Chef Kirin Chun, to learn what makes Woodinville Whiskeys unique. A customized etched bottle will be available for guests to order during this special event for you to enjoy at home.
