The Northwest Whiskey Trail, the first of its kind to cross an international border, is welcoming enthuasists and newcomers to the world of both single malt and pot still whiskey.

The adventure takes visitors through British Columbia, Washington State and Oregon. The seven distilleries featured in the self-guided trail include: Westward Whiskey; Copperworks Distilling; Westland Distillery; Macaloney’s Island Distillery; Goldstream Distillery; Shelter Point Distillery and Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers.

At each distillery, visitors can learn more about the distilling process and sample their signature whisky.

Visitors on the trail can also collect stamps at each of the participating distilleries to fill up their whiskey passport, which can be redeemed at their final distillery for a limited-edition Northwest Whiskey Trail Glencairn whiskey glass.

Along with the exploration of distilleries, the trail also takes visitors through stunning landscapes and scenic routes, from the British Columbia coastlines to the rolling hills of Washington State.

Graeme Macaloney, CEO of Macaloney’s Island Distillery, commented: : "We are thrilled to finally unveil the Northwest Whiskey Trail, a unique and exciting experience for whiskey lovers. Our goal is to showcase the incredible distilleries and whiskies found in the Pacific Northwest, and to provide a fun, educational and memorable experience for visitors. Collectively, we export our whiskies to every continent and can't wait for whiskey enthusiasts from around the world to come and explore this beautiful region and all it has to offer."

Copperworks president and co-founder Jason Parker added: “When Graeme first approached us with the idea of creating an international whiskey trail featuring like-minded craft distilleries in the Pacific Northwest, we thought it was a brilliant idea. We’re excited for more people to visit, learn about the distilleries, and most importantly, taste the difference between each distillery.”
