There’s some crafty work going on at Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula. The new Adrift Distillers is introducing three inventive craft spirits with ingredients from local partners, making it the first to bring creative spirits to Pacific County.
“Our spirits are unique because they begin with our partners and the raw ingredients they provide. We highlight their story as much as our own in the creation of our products. Ingredients are sourced from local farmers, including Starvation Alley’s organic cranberry juice, to heritage grain varieties from Living Heritage Farms, and tailored malts from Skagit Valley Malting. We’re blending and using ingredients that no one else is considering,” said Matt Lessnau, partner and head distiller.
Originally from the Long Beach Peninsula, Lessnau studied engineering and worked in the aerospace and consumer electronics industries in Seattle before relocating back to Long Beach. Lessnau combines his experience working behind the bar with his love of experimentation to make distinct local spirits.
