The home of the biggest bar I know is in Astoria, Oregon. No, not the kind of bar where you can get a pint or a double-Scotch on the rocks but the bar that’s been causing ships’ captains a hard time since cargo ships started visiting “Port Land”: The Columbia Bar.
Many a ship has run aground on this ever-changing underwater landscape and probably caused many a pilot of a ship to turn to the bottle for solace when it didn’t go well.
We heard from Lauren at Pilot House that they were excited about the news and want to be at SWWD ’21. We’re excited to have them for the first time (to be fair, they did accept in 2020 but we all know what happened there). We know they’ll bring their A-O Whisky which is a 2 year old Corn Whisky treated with Hungarian Oak. We’re looking forward to seeing what else they bring!
We’ve been able to procure July 24th, 2021 for the 3rd Annual Seattle World Whiskey Day event in the Redmond Downtown Park. This was postponed from May and September of 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
All tickets purchased for the previous two dates will be accepted at this event. We’re so very excited to be able to put on SWWD 2021 and we hope you will all be there!

It doesn’t get much better in Seattle than 72F and partly sunny. Check out this 5 day forecast culminating with a BIFF-BAM-POW Saturday for Seattle World Whiskey Day!
I got to meet Mike and Carrie Gifford at the Redmond Public Library where Mike gave a talk about distilling. They confirmed that they’re in for our own World Whisky Day celebration in the Redmond Central Connector. Tickets available soon!
