The creative spirit and camaraderie of Pacific Northwest brewing and distilling are on full display in this limited edition collaboration. Coffee stout and Kriek style beers aged in whiskey casks by Black Raven Brewing Co. were refilled by Westland and matured at our coastal rackhouse. The prominent notes of Washington cherries intermingle with coffee and chocolate notes creating a truly unique beer cask-finished single malt.
What is the Cask Exchange?
Westland’s Cask Exchange is a series of single malt whiskey bottlings driven by demand for casks by Washington brewers. Instead of selling these casks to local breweries, we loan casks to like-minded brewers from our region. We offer no requirement for what type of beer fills these casks—only for them to be returned after use. Beer finishes are far from novel, but this program isn't about being unique, it's about forging meaningful partnerships and making something together that couldn't have existed before.
