Whiskey enthusiasts, it’s time to pack your bags and head to the Pacific Northwest for a one-of-a-kind experience. The Northwest Whiskey Trail, the first of its kind to cross an international border, launches and is ready to welcome enthusiasts and newcomers to the world of single malt and potstill whiskey.
The brainchild of Graeme Macaloney Ph.D., CEO, and Whiskymaker at Macaloney’s Island Distillery, the Northwest Whiskey Trail is an international adventure taking visitors through British Columbia, Washington State, and Oregon.
This self-guided trail features seven distilleries, each with its own character and history, offering visitors an unforgettable whiskey experience.
The trail showcases the best award-winning (including World’s Best & Country Best) whiskies in the Northwest, including those made by Westward Whiskey in Portland, OR, Copperworks Distilling and Westland Distillery in Seattle, WA, Macaloney’s Island Distillery in Victoria, B.C., Goldstream Distillery in Cowichan Valley B.C., Shelter Point Distillery in Campbell River, B.C., and Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers in Vancouver, B.C.
Visitors will have the opportunity to explore each distillery’s unique distilling process, sample their signature whiskey, and learn about the history and culture behind each brand.
One of the highlights of the trail is the Northwest Whiskey Trail passport.
Visitors can collect stamps at each of the participating distilleries along the trail, and once they fill up their whiskey passport, they can redeem it at their final distillery for an exclusive, limited-edition Northwest Whiskey Trail Glencairn whiskey glass, pictured above.
The trail takes visitors through stunning landscapes and scenic routes, from the pristine coastlines of British Columbia to the rolling hills of Washington State and the urban landscapes of Portland.
The Northwest Whiskey Trail is the perfect opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the Pacific Northwest’s rich whiskey culture while enjoying the region’s stunning natural beauty.
Whether you’re a seasoned enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of single malt and potstill whiskey, the Northwest Whiskey Trail is the ultimate experience.
