LIMITED RELEASES FROM SCRATCH

The craft spirits may change seasonally, but the pleasure is constant.

From the earliest days of Scratch Distillery, our friends at local wineries and breweries have shared their wares with us to see what comes out of the still. The result is a series of limited releases of Bier Schnaps, brandies, and other special spirits. Scratch Pride Club members get first access to these special projects. Not a member? Join now. Or drop by the Tasting Room to see what we’re up to.

DIAMOND KNOT PEACH WIT

Our head distiller never sleeps

Scratch Spirits embraces artistic innovation and collaboration. Scratch is always on the lookout for creative opportunities within our local community.

Past Adventures

Successes we’ve had

BREAKAWAY SPIRIT

We took the beautiful Breakaway IPA made by American Brewing Company and distilled it into a relatively unheard-of spirit that is shared among brewers in Germany: a Bier Schnaps. Scratch Breakaway Spirit is flavorful, full-bodied, and hoppy with a malty sweetness.

BARREL FINISHED BREAKAWAY SPIRIT

Scratch Barrel-Finished Breakaway Spirit is a schnaps of IPA beer finished for three months in a blend of 50% once-used rye barrels, and 50% once-used bourbon barrels. It’s very smooth, with warm notes of caramel, burnt sugar, vanilla, and oak.

DIAMOND KNOT PEACH WIT

We love having the chance to collaborate with our local brewers to create unique products from their craft beers. We collaborated with Diamond Knot to distill Peach Wit, then we stored it in a once-used Bourbon barrel for 7 months.

SALISH SEA BREWING’S BIG CHOCOLATE LOVE

In late 2018, we distilled Salish’s Porter into a spirit and now it’s sitting in a barrel until late 2019. Big Chocolate Love has a Northwest-y ESB on the nose and a chocolate and espresso finish.  Perfect as a substitute for a chocolate liqueur in a cocktail to trade out intensity for sweetness.
