Business Spotlight: Blue Spirits Distilling
Blue Spirits are a Treat for Any Season
It’s the season for spirits – tasty ones! Blue Spirits Distilling believes that spirits are only as good as the water that makes the proof. In their case, the glacial waters of Lake Chelan are essential to their spirits and inspired their business name. The award-winning Blue Spirits line includes a variety of crafted gins, whiskeys, vodkas, rums, and tequilas that provide endless taste combinations and cocktail possibilities. In addition to their signature line, they also create the spirits for Tommy Bahama, bringing a taste of island life to the PNW.
Spirit of the PNW
After sourcing the right water, part of the process is infusing flavors into their spirits. For some of their products they use cold distillation, taking fruits, vegetables, and botanicals through a rotary evaporation process to create clean flavors for their vodkas and gins.
“While I love all of our cocktail creations, I particularly enjoy our gins,” said co-owner Heidi Soehren. “Our Ghost Gin, Blue Wind Gin, and Tommy Bahama Island Gin are all gold medal winners and excellent in a martini or gin and tonic, where the flavors come through and stand on their own.”
“The Moss Wall was a big hit,” said Jason Gill, Commercial Relationship Manager at First Fed. “It’s been wonderful collaborating with Blue Spirits to help grow their business.”
