Whiskey made in the Northwest? Yes! The family business at Mutiny Bay Distillery now has my illustration on their whiskey bottles. Thank you to Design Heavy for contracting me for my illustration skills, and compliments on his great packaging design. Also, thank you to the owners of Mutiny Bay Distillery for the honor of being a part of their branding. The illustration is pen and ink, done in the style of a 19th century etching. See more examples of my illustration work.
I visited the Mutiny Bay Distillery tasting room and tried out their 3 samples. My favorites are the two bottles pictured here: Palouse Gold Aged Wheat Whiskey and Sweet Lulu Whiskey-Based Liqueur. The first because of that 3 year aged caramel taste, and the second because I’m a little bit of a sweet tooth and like dessert quality of the vanilla tasting liqueur. I’m not an expert on whiskey, I just know that if you like whiskey, you need to support this small family business. They just got started this year, are good people, and make great whiskey!
Whidbey Island is a vacation stop for many in the summer time, and I was able to stop by the distillery because that same weekend my wife played harp at a wedding. My whole family went on the weekend get-away to experience beautiful Rosario Beach on Fidalgo Island, just north of Whidbey Island. Then we stopped at the cute towns of Coupville, Freeland (where Mutiny Bay Distillery is located), and Langley. Then, finished our loop by waiting in line for the Ferry back to the mainland.
