Our Process

The Hardware Distillery Co.® manufactures

the highest quality spirits.


They are meant to be paired with food,

and these pairings will accentuate the qualities of both the spirits and the food.


Great spirits start with great water, and we use the best. Our water flows to us from the Hood Canal Watershed in the next-door Olympic National Forest.

The Hardware Distillery uses grains that are grown in Washington state fields, fruit grown in Washington orchards, and honey from Washington beehives.

Yeast is a very important aspect of the distilling process. Our yeast selections and grain combinations result in spirits that are complex, and have great depth.

tours2The Hardware Distillery uses a variety of sizes of barrels for aging, with some of them new and some previously used. Some of the whiskey products are aged in more than one barrel to enhance the depth of their flavors.

The Hardware Distillery is built on property that slopes to the Hood Canal. It has a basement that opens up on the Canal side. The spirits are aged in this basement, so that the barrels can breathe the fresh salt air from the Hood Canal. It is expected that some of the whiskey barrels will age for many years in this setting.
