We are three business partners: Rich Anderson and Suzy and Hawk Pingree. We all work together to make wonderful small batch ciders and spirits here on San Juan Island. We make 12 different gins (really!), several delicious liqueurs and flavored brandies, and our premium award-winning apple brandy, which won gold and best in class from the American Craft Spirits Association, as well as best in class from the American Distilling Institute in 2014. We hope that you will join us for a tasting at the Distillery and Ciderworks, it's a lot of fun and actually educational. We have a beautiful all-copper Adrian still that we are usually running during tastings. We are just under a mile from Roche Harbor Resort.
