After retiring, Bev Heising and her husband, Steve, were far from retiring from life. Instead, they bought some land, learned a ton, and started a brand new business doing something they’d never done before – making distilled spirits!

We are pleased to share with you, the second release of Whidbey Island Distilleries Youngblood series, our Oak Aged Loganberry. We have taken our world class Loganberry Liqueur and aged it on Bunker Rye Whiskey Oak for over 6 months.
When the Heising family purchased a batch still and installed it in a distinctive structure they dubbed “The Bunker,” which is built into a hillside on an island in Washington’s Puget Sound, it was the beginning of Whidbey Island Distillery.
This Boysenberry liqueur was finished on oak slates that Whidbey Island Distillery uses to age their Whidskey. Sitting on oak for four months. The result is something that will keep you warm all winter.
Time to celebrate your cocktail independence. Summer on Whidbey Island officially starts on the 4th of July. This cocktail is the perfect way to show off the red, white, and blue pride we all have.
