Two Friends. One Dream.

The story of Woodinville doesn’t begin with a 100-year-old recipe or generations of family distillers. It begins with two best friends, following our dreams. A dream of waking up each morning and doing something we are passionate about. Something we love.

The goal is to make the greatest craft whiskey in the world by bringing the time-honored traditions of bourbon production into a craft environment — using the highest quality locally grown grains, the best barrels and coopers in the world, the most technologically advanced distilling equipment, and the mentorship of an industry icon, David Pickerell, former Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark.

And while our story is still unfolding, after being awarded “Craft Whiskey of the Year” and “Craft Rye Whiskey of the Year” two years in a row by the American Distilling Institute, we think we’re headed in the right direction.

We invite you to grab a glass and join us.

–Orlin Sorensen & Brett Carlile, Founders, Woodinville Whiskey Co.

Our Teacher

You are only as good as those who have taught you, and we’re honored to have one of the best teacher’s in the world. After 14 years as master distiller at Maker’s Mark, David Pickerell has been our guiding hand since the day we set up shop. We’re proud to call him our teacher and friend.

Our Farm

All of our grain is grown exclusively for us on the Omlin Family Farm in Quincy, Washington. As third
generation farmers, Arnie and Phyllis Omlin know what it takes to grow the finest grains. We’re honored to be part of the family.
