This craft distillery in Bothell is winning national awards

As a craft distillery based in Bothell, WA, our commitment to crafting world class, quality spirits shines like gold. Combining the knowledge and tastes of both a Chef and a Sommelier, Wildwood Spirits Co. is actively pioneering a new methodology to craft distilling. We make our spirit from scratch using all the local ingredients we can get our hands on. In order to see if our methods were viable, we submitted our locally-made craft creations to various nationwide competitions to see how they stacked up in the spirits world. The following are some of our most proud accomplishments. Each one is a result of our careful commitment to quality in each step of our unique farm to distillery process.

 

Kur Gin

Our gin, Kur (pronounced “cure”) is made in the London Dry Gin style and is produced with Washington heirloom variety red winter wheat that emphasizes a backbone of classic juniper aromas and flavors with subtle citrus (Seville orange) as well as Douglas Fir and Braeburn apples from our distiller’s backyard.

  • This gin won Double Gold at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition. If you think that’s a lot to say- well, you should have seen how much there was to drink!
    • Fun Fact: It also won Best Gin in Competition at the same competition. Not bad, considering entries poured in from all over the globe.

 

Other Awards:

Gold Medal; San Francisco International Spirits Competition

            Gold Medal; American Association of Craft Distillers

Best of Category, American Distilling Institute

            Best Washington Gin, Seattle Ginvitational

 

Stark Vatten

Our vodka, Stark Vatten (Swedish for “strong water”), is produced with Washington heirloom variety red winter wheat and pure, filtered water to create a clean, viscous, oily vodka that displays a definitive classic European style while remaining a distinctive local product.

  • This vodka has collected a few awards as well, and one had a local “sounding” name. Stark Vatten won “Best Vodka in Competition” at the Washington Cup Spirits Competition.
    • Fun Fact: Though it sounds like it would be right up the street, this Washington Cup is actually a nationwide competition held in Washington DC.
