ABOUT WESTWARD WHISKEY (IN A FEW SENTENCES):Westward, the highest rated American Single Malt, is a whiskey of Northwest provenance.

THEIR WHISKEY-MAKING PROCESS:At Westward, there are no shortcuts, and therein lies the beauty. They pursue perfection by creating #avor in every step of their long, slow process. Their distillers begin by brewing an artisanal American ale from scratch, using locally malted barley, ale yeast, and a slow, low temperature fermentation.They distill twice in custom low-re#ux pot stills designed to create a robust spirit, and transform their fresh, #avorful ale into whiskey. They mature to perfection in new, low char American Oak barrels selected to accentuate the bold characteristics of their whiskey. They mingle their barrels in small batches to achieve Westward’s signature #avor pro(le – balanced and bold.
