A Map of Washington’s Craft Distilleries
I’m starting to think about what might happen when the weather gets slightly better. What might happen is bike trips – in particular, bike trips with distillery visits carefully positioned at rest points.
I was surprised that I couldn’t find a complete map of Washington state’s many craft spirits producers. It was dirt simple to take the Liquor Control Board’s license lists, plop them into a Google Docs map gadget, and hey presto! It’s a map of all the distilleries in the state!
This data is current as of January 25, 2013 and includes all pending license applications as well as approved licenses. Washington’s craft spirits scene is lively so it will probably fall rapidly out of date. If you want the latest licensees, make your own damn map.
