For centuries, single malt whisky was considered the sole domain of Scotland. But relative newcomers to the industry are proving that great single malt can also be produced outside Scotland's borders. From Japan to India, Taiwan to New Zealand, regions around the world are expanding the notion of what single malt can be by producing whiskies that express the character of their unique terroir. Seattle-based Westland Distillery is doing just that in America - producing single malts that honour tradition while offering something new and valuable. The climate in the Pacific Northwest is ideally suited to the production of single malt whiskey. Washington is home to two of the best barley growing regions in the world and the special water comes from the Cascade Mountains.
The Westland American Single Malt Whisky is the new flagship of the distillery and replaces the previous Core Range consisting of American Oak, Sherry Wood and Peated.
In addition, Westland has developed a limited edition series called "Outpost Range". The Outpost Range consists of 3 single malts: Colere, Garryana and Solum. Each of these whiskies will be released in limited numbers each year and will differ in flavour profile from the other editions. The Westland Outpost Colere Edition 2 will be the first.
Westland American Single Malt Whisky and the Colere Edition 2 of the Outpost Range are now available in selected specialist shops.
