Our barreled gin is rested in a combination of rye and bourbon barrels for 4 months. Once sufficiently aged, we the blend the two barrels to produce a spicy and floral spirit that features a lot of the characteristics of whiskey but remains definitively a gin.
Sea Bishop Spirits is an award-winning artisan gin distillery in Black Diamond, Washington. We founded the distillery in 2014 and were fully licensed in 2016. Our facility is located about 30 minutes outside of Seattle under the shadow of Mount Rainier.
We pride ourselves on being a small business with strong local roots. Each of our gins is vapor infused, 100% handmade, and starts with pure spring water from the nearby Black Diamond Springs. This helps ensure we produce a cleaner and fresher tasting spirit without multiple rounds of filtering. All other ingredients are sourced from local vendors as well. Tailer and I manage each step of the distillation process to ensure a high-quality and consistent product.
John and Tailer Emrick founded Sea Bishop in 2014 with one mission: Make the best gin in the world. Both John and Tailer are Washington State natives and veterans of the restaurant and bar industry with Tailer having over a decade of experience as an executive chef. Together, they’ve become award-winning craft distillers who distill and package each bottle of Sea Bishop by hand.
