Seattle area distilleries win big at the American Distilling Institute

Those whiskey and gin geeks from around the country are in Seattle this week, holed up at the convention center for  the 11th Annual American Distilling Institute conference. A good number of them were sober too, though many local distillers had a lot of reasons to celebrate. More than a dozen craft distilleries in Washington, from Woodinville Whiskey Co. to San Juan Island Distillery took home several medals at the award gala last night.
I was especially happy for Sidetrack Distillery in Kent, which won a gold medal for its “beet spirit.” I think it’s one of the most interesting products in our craft distillery movement. It has an earthy note, almost like tequila. You can even make a margarita with it.

Award list below. Winners from Washington state are in bold.
