Our dream is to make apple brandy and exceptional gins with local apples, many of which we grow and harvest in our orchard at Westcott Bay Cider .
Spy Hop Gin won a silver medal at the 2013 Denver American Distilling Institute Judging. It is so delicious, and we are so proud.
We are also making bitters, fruit brandies and liqueurs. We pick local berries and forage for other island botanicals so that our spirits have the flavors of San Juan Island.
We hope that you will join us for a tasting at the Distillery. We are just under a mile from Roche Harbor Resort, a wonderful island marina and hotel/restaurant/spa/shopping that is also very fun and interesting.
Saturday tastings are 1 to 4 pm. Call 360 378-2606 for an appointment if you are around at hours other than our normal tasting times. We are often working there and can use a little break!
There are a number of ways to reach us. The ferry docks in Friday Harbor, just a short drive through San Juan Island. There is also a small airport and marina at Roche Harbor, and the Kenmore Air seaplane from Seattle is so fun! So come out, enjoy the weather (we have half the rainfall of Seattle), the shops and the docks but be sure to come by for a taste of our spirits.
