Seattle based Westland Distillery has this week announced the release of two new expressions; Westland Peated American Single Malt and Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt. Both of which will join their core range alongside their flagship Westland American Single Malt Whiskey which was launched in 2014.

Westland’s Peated American Single Malt (46% ABV) is a bottling made of two separate new-make spirits brought together after maturation. The first is made from a mash of peated malt, said to be among the smokiest found in the New World, the second is from a mash of 100% Washington-grown pale malt. The whiskey is then matured in a variety of oak barrels, including 1st-fill ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.

Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt (465 ABV) is a bottling that Master Distiller Matt Hofmann matured in former Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks. The old casks were given new life and purpose in the skilled hands of Rafael Cabello and his team at Tonelería del Sur in Montilla, Spain. Westland’s long-standing partnership with the Cabello family-owned cooperage allows Westland access to one of the largest supplies of sherry casks from the Old World.

Commenting on the new releases, Emerson Lamb, President of Westland Distillery, said: “Adding Sherry Wood and Peated expressions to our portfolio establishes Westland Distillery as the leader in this burgeoning movement of American Single Malt Whiskey. Our ‘trinity’ symbolizes our position as custodians of the single malt whiskey tradition, while at the same time progressive in quality, provenance and transparency. We are now one step closer to our ultimate goal of putting the state of Washington on the map as a world-class place to make single malt whiskey.”

Founded in 2010, Westland Distillery mashes, distills, matures and bottles American Single Malt Whiskey in the heart of the Pacific Northwest of the US. Distilled in the Scottish tradition and matured in the American style, Westland brings a new and distinctly American voice to the world of single malt whiskey.

Westland Peated American Single Malt and Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt are now available from specialist retailers across the US.
