"Great spirits start with great water, and we use the best." Their water flows to them 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. Their yeast selections and grain combinations result in spirits that are complex, and have great depth.
They use 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 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.
Meet Jan and Chuck, they started The Hardware Distillery in their retirement years. When they decided to locate their distillery next to Washington’s Hood Canal, where they have a small vacation cabin in Hoodsport, they knew it would be the perfect location for their retirement dream of owning a distillery. They created a distillery that manufactures the highest quality spirits. These spirits are meant to be paired with food, and these pairings will accentuate the quality of both the spirits and the food. 'We look forward to seeing you at our Distillery.' -Jan and Chuck
