Westland Distillery was born in the Pacific Northwest. The plants used in their signature & distinctive single malt whiskeys are grown across the region and distilled in their 13,000 sq. ft. SoDo location. After three years of distilling and ageing they opened their facility to the public in the fall of 2013 for public tastings as well as private events. It is still home to their distilling operations and guests can get an inside scoop on the whiskey making process and company history. The tasting room is beautifully and thoughtfully designed with features of natural woods and exposed metal. Perfect for a company cocktail hour, wedding or team building event, Westland’s space lends itself well for a range of event types ranging in size of 150 for a seated meal to 275 for cocktail receptions.
The American Single Malt, which they refer to as their flagship whiskey, rivals some of the best aged whiskeys & bourbons from the American South and Scotland. Our beverage manager loved it so much while visiting the distillery that we crafted a cocktail at Pomegranate Bistro just to feature the whiskey, although it is absolutely delicious neat too (if you’re into that sort of thing).
At the end of May, Westland hosted an open house with it’s preferred vendors. Choice Linens was in charge of event design and coordinated the little details that made the space pop. They featured playful floral linen and barley centerpieces, a main ingredient in Westland’s selection of whiskeys. The ladies from Invisible Hostess mixed up some delicious cocktails featuring the whiskey. It’s always a blast working with such amazing pros!
Celeste Cooning provided a beautiful art instillation as a back drop to a mock alter at the for end of the barrel room. From templates she designs, Cooning creates cut-paper installations that have been featured in many weddings, events, storefronts and public parks across Seattle. As you can see, these aren’t your run-of-the-mill cookie-cuter designs as they provide a stunning statement, particularly with the natural light shining through.
We’re excited to partner with this Thoughtfully Made new event space.
