Distilled in Scotland, this includes both malted barley and grain, cut to pure water from the Cascade Mountains of Washington. The “Inner Harbour” name is our reflection on those moments when we are all at ease and comfortable with friends and family during challenging days and seasons. Our label’s blue and green colors are inspired by the blues in Puget Sound and summer skies, and greens of the Cascade and Olympic forests.
80 Proof (ABV 40%)
We are a craft distillery producing world-class whiskies and gins – as seen in our multiple gold, double gold and other awards from national and international competitions. We make tasty and enjoyable gin for people who “think” they don’t like gin. All our spirits are sipping spirits – meant to taste great right out of the bottle. After some years in company and product development, including a move to- and then back from Canada (!), we are wholly committed to super premium quality, using organic, sustainable and renewable ingredients whenever available. The 2 co founders, Ernie and Leigh Troth have backgrounds in international business and trade, project and product development and quality control. Leigh has also been a senior software developer.
Ernie Troth hails from Washington State, but has lived and worked close to 15 years abroad, mostly in Europe and the Middle East. He holds a BA degree from Chicago, an MA in International Economics from Geo. Washington University in DC, and an MBA in International Marketing from New Haven. After working abroad, he settled in Virginia, where he met his wife, Leigh. During the course of business development for the distillery, Ernie worked part-time and as a volunteer worker at both US and Canadian distilleries, took courses from the American Distilling Institute and others. Developing sensory perception for distillates is an acquired ability, and he combines the sensory process with chemistry and detailed analytics.
Pleasant aroma to start,
initial sweetness and a silky mouthfeel, with
pear, butterscotch and salted-caramel in the
middle, leading to a lingering light smokey
peat finish. Great served neat or over ice.
