Specially selected barrels of fully-matured and ready-to-bottle Battle Point Whiskey are transfered to special casks constructed of rare and exotic Mizunara Oak, from the the Japanese island of Hokkaido. These casks formerly held our own Bainbridge YAMA Mizunara Cask Whiskery.
Bainbridge Organic Distillers was founded as a family business in 2009, and since the beginning we perform every task in the making of distilled spirits on site, and with our own hands. From the selection of grain varieties and lots, to grinding, mashing, fermenting and distillation we are hands-on at every stage in the small-batch spirits production process.
Bainbridge Organic Distillers was Washington State's first distillery producing USDA Certified Organic spirits, and we are the state's only distillery producing 100% of its organic spirits from scratch, on site in our own distillery. We are very proud to have launched the state's first organic vodkas, whiskey and gin. We favor working with other local, family-owned companies, and we strive to make sure that every step in our process is as environmentally neutral as possible and is sustainably and responsibly managed.
We founded this distillery with the belief that being small is an advantage, and with a dedication to complete transparency in our process, our ingredients and our business practices. We are proud to be independent, and independently minded. We are dedicated to the rule that if we can't do something the right way, and if we wouldn't be happy sharing what we do with fellow enthusiasts, we won't do it at all.
It takes 10-12 months for the exotic notes of the Mizunara oak to develop. The resulting whiskey is alive with notes of cedar, toasted coconut, tropical fruits and sea air.
