About
Whidbey Island Distillery is a family owned business run by three generations of the Heising family. We set out in 2009 to make distilled spirits on Washington's own Whidbey Island, and in September 2011 we sold the first bottle of our Loganberry Liqueur. Bev and Steve Heising bought 9 acres of beautiful Whidbey Island hillside in 2009. They renovated existing buildings to include a distillery building (the Bunker), a residence (the Bunk House), a tasting room, and other multi-use buildings on the property. Since then the Whidbey Island Distillery has become a recognized producer of some of finest spirits in the world. Among numerous awards, our Blackberry Liqueur holds a 98 rating by the Beverage Testing Institute making it the highest rated spirit (of any kind) produced in North America.

Great sampling at the Bunker. Rye and berry liquors were fabulous. Purchased one of each plus a cute tee.

A relaxing afternoon

We were greeted in a very warm and welcoming fashion. No pressure on us at all, we were just invited to relax, sample what we’d like and enjoy the experience, which we did.

What a nice little stop on our visit to Whidbey Island. Super nice staff, free whiskey and liqueur tasting and delicious products! We lived the Raspberry Liqueur best.

Exceptional!

With every sip you make, it is clear the liquors were made with such love and attention to the details that sometimes it is even hard to believe! I would say it is the best local drink in Washington state! Greatest local gift, I bring it to my friends and family abroad. If you are in Washington state, don't hesitate to order the liquors, you won't regret it.
ProTip: use any liquor for your version of Kir Royale cocktail (splash of liquor topped with ice-cold brut champagne, serve immediately in flute glass) Enjoy :)

We visited this distillery with few friends during the Covid. Personnel over there were very nice. Tables, bottles etc were very clean. We did not drink or buy but I do recommend this clean place.

Make this a stop on your next visit to Whidbey Island
Jul 2020
This small distillery is just a little way off of 525 and so worth the stop.
Their tasting (one rye whiskey and four berry liqueurs) is free and our guide, Mike, was very informative and helpful.
We like a good rye and this one has a nice honey/citrus front to it so we bought a bottle and also got the loganberry liqueur which has a good complex flavor.
Check out their website for some fun recipes.

Wish they sold out of state
Mar 2020
We visited Whidbey Island Distillery five years ago, and almost to the day five years later we visited again. We each bought one of everything and now wish we had added an extra bottle or two of the Bunker Rye Whiskey. So, until our next visit to the Island, we will hold these spirits sacred. Thank you for a great visit!

Thank you so much for the kind review and visiting us again; hopefully it will be sooner than 5 years next time. What state do you live in? Email at bev@whidbeydistillery.com and let me know; we are working on expanding our product into different states. We look forward to you next visit. Cheers, Bev Heising Owner
