Years in the works, Fremont Mischief Distillery, project of Mike and Patti Sherlock, has been notably hush-hush about plans.
And in true Seattle style, when the distillery finally revealed itself, it did so quietly and nerdily. Last Saturday, the first tours of its luxe-looking HQ at 132 N Canal Street were offered to 750 treasure hunters during a Groundspeak geocaching party, according to Patti.
The distillery and tasting room are "almost ready to open," but Patti says that the first public opportunity to try the products will be August 31, during the grand opening of the new upscale state liquor store at 4100 SW Alaska Street in West Seattle. (The store is one of the 30 tapped for the pilot program to test spirit sampling in state stores, according to West Seattle Blog.)
"Most of our spirits and a sampling of our products will be there," Patti revealed yesterday evening in an email. So if you head to the new hooch emporium on the 31st, you can try "Fremont Mischief whiskey, gin, and vodka," and check out the distillery’s "cocktail kits, vintage leather cases with a dirty martini kit, and more."
Look for more Mischief info coming soon.
