What Our Customers Are Saying ...

"One of my hobbies is visiting various distilleries across Washington, taking the tours, and sampling the tipples. Justin gave us a tour that was, bar none, the most informative, friendly, and enthusiastic I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of.

This distillery's commitment to local production ingredients is impressive. The Sandstone team is building a true asset to their charming community in Tenino.

And of course, one cannot forget to mention the spirits. Justin took care of us through our sampling of Sandstone Distillery's wares, and there was not a bottle that did not delight. Like the people that make them, the Sandstone spirits are a family; each with their unique personality and each having a familiar taste. From the warm and boozy Stone Carver White Whiskey to the anise-hearted Black Gin, each libation is distinctly smooth, with a pleasantly alcoholic tingle that lingers on the tongue.

And, as if all of this weren't enough, the distillery doubles as a kind of local museum dedicated to Tenino's stone-cutting, quarry heritage, and to Andrew Wilson in particular. Their tasting room includes artifacts close to a century old, and John does a singularly good job of conveying both the excitement of Andrew's story and the wonder of holding the tools of past industry.

If you have any interest in fine spirits or local history, do yourself a favor and take the trip to Sandstone Distillery. You will not be disappointed.

P.S. The Sandstone Bacon Whiskey is worth every penny!"

"From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. We enjoyed learning about the history of Tenino and of John's journey crafting fine spirits-- from his first milk pail still to his current "tote" system. We come from wine country, but it didn't take long to appreciate the hard work and ingenuity of this family owned small business. John and Justin have a knack for finding industrial equipment and retrofitting it to meet their needs. We ended our tour with a great sampling of spirits. The Rosemary infused Vodka was a gem. What a delightful way to spend a Saturday afternoon!"

Guys...Go check out #sandstonedistillery this family run distillery is definitely worth the 12min detour off I-5 between Portland and Seattle. Not only are these guys serving up really well balanced vodkas, gins, and whiskeys for a super young establishment but the commitment to ingenuity and community is so clear!

From the repurposed soup caldrons off an old Navy ship to the protein-rich spent grain being used to feed the pigs at the farm down the road that are later used to create their bacon vodka, the folks at Sandstone are truly something special.

We will definitely be back for that bourbon when it’s ready!
