Text description provided by the architects. This adaptive reuse of a timber warehouse structure, built in 1914 and originally used for manufacturing cranes by Seattle’s Ederer Crane Company, is the new home of Westland Distillery.The design team focused on weaving the guest tour experience seamlessly into the fermenting and distillation processes, offering guests a unique perspective on the time-honored art of making whiskey.

Behind an elegant yet raw tasting bar and whiskey library, the facility houses a 6,000-liter mash house and a world-class still room comprised of a 7,560-liter wash still and a 5,670-liter spirit still. The barrel room holds upwards of 100 barrels waiting to be filled and aged in Westland’s Rackhouse on the Olympic Peninsula. Staff offices are located on the mezzanine, above a state-of-the-art climate-controlled QC lab. Materials such as reclaimed, rough-hewn timber and raw steel were utilized to respect the owners’ family history in the logging industry and to recall the existing warehouse timber structure.
