In our pursuit of an authentically American single malt whiskey, we bring our signature five‐malt barley bill together with new American oak casks—two things practically unheard of in the old world. This combination produces a dramatically different whiskey from what is now commonplace and expected in the single malt category. But just as traditional styles of single malt from Scotland emerged as a reflection of regions such as Islay and Speyside, so too does our American Oak stay true to the provenance of our Pacific Northwest home.

In 2010 we set out to bring a new and distinctly American voice to the world of single malt. Each of the whiskeys in our Heritage Collection exhibit the fundamental intention of the Westland house style that emerged in those early days: a balanced, barley-forward whiskey that honors tradition but also moves it forward in a new way. All are made from 100% malted barley, fermented with a unique Belgian Saison Brewer’s yeast and matured in a variety of cask types—leading to new and distinctly American flavor profiles. From that starting point, each expression offers a variation of a house style that departs from expected conventions of single malt whiskey in their own way.

Ten years later we continue the pursuit but our whiskeys and house style has evolved. The Heritage Collection stands now as our opening statement on the world of single malt as it existed a decade ago. Today the landscape is different. The American Single Malt Whiskey category has set firm roots. A renaissance in raw materials is afoot. Terroir in whiskey is being embraced rather than denied. New possibilities are being explored worldwide.
