Notes

The Whidbey Island Distillery is is owned and managed by Jim and Becky Heising. According to the write-up at the South Whidbey Record, they established the distillery in 2011 on their own 9 acre retirement home. They use a small 50-glllon copper still for a traditional batch-method distillation.

The distillery's first launched was the Whidbey Island Distillery Loganberry liqueur, featuring the flavors of the locally produced and popular berry. The base spirit is a distillation of locally made wine (one could think of it as an eau-de-vie) that is infused with loganberry as opposed to the more typical grain-based spirits. We interpret this as meaning a lighter, more citrusy base spirit. They suggest sipping on the rocks or  mixing with champagne.

Note: there was a Whidbey's Loganberry liqueur produced in the same area by Chateau St Michelle that has been discontinued. This is a new liqueur produced by a different company and distiller.

Had first chance to sample this at the Distillery and it is excellent. It is a must do on the island. Tried the Loganberry it was smooth not too sweet. can't wait to break it out after Christmas dinner.

Introduced to this liqueur in the 90s I was a big fan. It is unfortunate that it was discontinued. Looking for a good replacement currently.

I am a fan of this unusual flavor. Manages to be tart without being sour.

Had this one with a couple ice cubes and a splash of tonic water. Not bad. It's drinkable is the best way to put it.
