Heritage Distilling Company’s expansion is bringing their footprint outside the South Sound, as the Gig Harbor distillery has announced an official opening date for its newest facility in Kittitas County.

Nov. 18 will be the grand opening of Heritage’s Roslyn facility, a 10,000-square-foot distillery with a tasting room, retail space and internal mezzanine overlooking the operations. The facility also includes Heritage’s patented Cask Club, a secondary tasting space and private event spaces.

This will be the fourth federally and state licensed distillery location for Heritage. Production includes a full line up of the company's vodka, gin and whiskey varieties.

“We are thrilled to open our newest fully licensed craft distillery in Roslyn’s historic NWIC building,” said Justin Stiefel, CEO of Heritage Distilling Company. “Roslyn has some of Washington state’s richest history, going back to its coal mining days in the late 1800s and its history as a melting pot of many cultures and ethnicities from around the world. Heritage Distilling Company is proud to add to Roslyn’s amazing heritage.”

The NWIC building was previously headquarters for the Northwest Improvement Company during Roslyn’s coal days.

“The Roslyn Downtown Association welcomes Heritage Distilling Company to our building and community. The past 5 years has been quite a long journey in the RDA's effort to save this landmark structure. The addition of Heritage Distilling and their dedication to an extensive and stunning renovation of such a large space, is greatly appreciated,” stated Cheri Marusa, president of the Roslyn Downtown Association. “We are excited to have them as a tenant in the NWIC Building and as a partner in the community. We look forward to their grand opening and long-term contribution to Roslyn's business community.”
