Every Spirit Has a Story™ - this is Roslyn Reserve's.
The story of Roslyn Reserve begins over a century before Heritage Distilling Co. (HDC) was even a twinkle in our eyes. It starts with two men, determined to find coal to power the completion of a new railway in the Central Cascades. In 1883, coal deposits in Smith Creek Canyon were finally discovered. A booming town suddenly emerged from a cloud of coal dust as immigrants from across the world came to work in the mines. Families from Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Germany, Lithuania and Ireland settled in what is now Roslyn, Washington. HDC Roslyn’s six copper stills are named after these founding families.
In the late 1880’s, the Northwest Improvement Company (NWIC) raised a massive brick building in the center of town. Since coal was king, the entire town relied on the NWIC hub for goods and services. Today, Roslyn’s history lives on in the walls of that very same building. Three years of painstaking preservation and renovation were completed in 2017 and the doors to HDC Roslyn finally opened.
