What's New at Mount Baker Distillery?

The MBD Tasting Room

by Zach Smith on 09/06/17

Visitors to our distillery at the Haskell Business Center are immediately welcomed to our rustic, handmade tasting room, designed to feel just like a log cabin in the woods. The most striking feature of the room is the real spliced logs plastered on the walls that can even be seen through the shop window. Back in 2011, Darreld, our family friend and the man who made Tipsi (featured in a previous post), used his personal lumber mill down in Mossyrock and cut up several full-length logs for us to use. In addition, Darreld was able to scrounge up some hundred-year-old barnwood from his property as well and helped fashion it into usable decor. After a several-day family affair spent securing and chinking the wood in place all around the area, the design of the tasting room was set, and what was once a drab gray office setting now resembles a backwoods haven.

Today, many things are on offer at the tasting room that can't be obtained anywhere else. Along with the usual fare of all our signature drinks, the tasting room also offers plenty of merchandise to take home to help make a trip to the distillery a special one.

Baker Black and Tony's Coffee

by Zach Smith on 08/10/17

Mount Baker Distillery's newest product Baker Black combines our neutral grain spirits with the fresh grounds of local establishment Tony's Coffee, creating a strong, dark, coffee liquor.

Made for coffee purists, Baker Black is different from other coffee-based liquors in how it promotes the natural taste of coffee first and foremost. Rather than rely on sweeteners and sugary additives, Baker Black keeps it simple by infusing the flavor of fresh grounds into every bottle. Currently, Baker Black can only be purchased on-site at our home base in the Haskell Business Center, so if you have an interest in it or any of our other products, be sure to stop on by!

Mount Baker Distillery Gin

by Zach Smith on 07/17/17

One of our more exotic offerings at Mount Baker Distillery is our Gin, sold in the same locations as our other popular drinks and made with our neutral-grain spirits. 

The process of how we make our gin is quite similar to how other gins are produced. It begins the same way all our products begin: storing, stirring, fermenting, and distilling into a drinkable spirit. From there, we take our alcohol and infuse it with various botanicals, primarily consisting of juniper berries but also containing angelica root, cardamom, coriander, lavender, lemon peel, licorice root, orris root, star anise and local spruce. The eclectic mixing of ingredients create a "New American" style of gin that has more flavor yet is softer than a traditional London Dry gin. Our gin can be used for mixing with tonic or for drinking it neat on the rocks. Try it out!
