Schnapsleiche Spirits is a craft micro-distillery located in Woodinville, Washington. All of Schnapsleiche’s spirits are created from scratch in single batches, using traditional techniques in a pot still. All ingredients are Washington-grown grains, Washington-grown fruit, water, yeast, and (in some recipes like gin) spices. All production, from raw ingredients to bottled product, is done on-site in Woodinville Washington.
Visitors are welcome to tastings a variety of hand-crafted spirits including European-style Schnaps, Gin, Akvavit, Geist and Vodkas. There are also Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, and Brandies being made, but alas, as traditional crafting takes many years, there is none yet available for sale or tastings. Schapsleiche’s goal is to produce well-known spirits, some lesser-known spirits from various parts of the world, and a few unique spirits only found in Washington.
Schnapsleiche is located in a complex containing several wineries, a brewery, and a cidery; all with tasting rooms.
