Summer brings waves of wild blackberries to Whidbey Island. Down every road you’ll find sweeping vines teeming with deep purple and black droplets, a sure sign that summer is in full bloom on the Island. In honor of Whidbey Island’s blackberry rich summers, we present Whidbey Island Distillery Blackberry Liqueur.
Each bottle of our Blackberry Liqueur starts with perfectly plump and ripened Black Diamond Blackberries. We bathe the blackberries in our world-class brandy distilled from Washington State wines for up to 8 months, producing a liqueur rich in color and bursting with blackberry flavor.
Whidbey Island Distillery Blackberry Liqueur is the single highest rated spirit (of any type) produced in North America.

Whidbey Island Distillery’s award winning Loganberry Liqueur continues the great northwest legacy of fine liqueurs made from this unique berry. Our family recipe, distillation and aging process results in a bold interpretation of this classic— a liqueur that bursts with warmth and intense flavors, and ends buttery smooth.
Our Loganberry Liqueur is hand-made in small batches by distilling locally produced wines into brandy, followed by aging with the juice and skins of locally grown loganberries.

Raspberries love to grow in the temperate climate and fertile soil of the Pacific Northwest. Each Spring brings a bounty of luscious red raspberries to the area, but as summer ends, so does the availability of fresh raspberry flavor – until now.
Each bottle of our Raspberry Liqueur contains nearly a half pound of luscious red raspberries. We infuse these berries with our world class Whidbey Island Distillery Neutral Spirits for up to 8 months, producing a flavorful cordial you can enjoy all year long.

This juicy and intense berry is prized for flavor both sweet and tart. The boysenberry is a cross between the blackberry, the raspberry and the loganberry and became widely popular when cultivated and sold by Walter Knott, the founder of Knott’s Berry Farm.
We happen to love the history and flavors of this delightful berry and are excited by the complexity of the liqueur we crafted with it.
Boysenberry is the newest edition to the award-winning liqueurs at Whidbey Island Distillery. With its dark magenta color and deep floral and spiced berry aromas, this liqueur will remind you of your favorite jar of preserves. The hints of tropical flavors such as banana, pineapple, and sour apple will transport you to a summer garden any time of year. The tones of dark chocolate dance on the palate and make our Boysenberry liqueur a great paring with desserts or a dessert in and of itself. This is truly a fantastically flavorful and complex berry liqueur with a long lasting finish.
Bunker Rye pays homage to the place aptly named “The Bunker” where Whidbey Island Distillery began crafting its award-winning spirits.
Bunker Rye Whiskey is mashed, distilled, and aged on-site. With a focus on using local Northwest grains, our mash bill contains 51% Rye and 49% Washington Select Barley. Our unique continuous distillation columns, produce a soft and approachable rye whiskey. Each batch we do is specifically aged, combining traditional used whiskey barrels, with new and used, toasted white American oak slats. The end result starts sweet with notes of honey, caramel, and a hint of citrus. The finish lets you know it’s a Rye with notes of spices and pepper that linger on the palate.
It seemed only fitting to call Bunker Rye a “Whidskey”— a superb whiskey in its own right with a character that could only be achieved on an island and in a place with a character entirely its own.
