OOLA Distilling

From this Distillery

 

named after the greatest German Shepherd who ever lived

Founded in January of 2010, OOLA Distillery was one of the first distilleries to open in Seattle post-Prohibition. Located in Seattle’s vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood, OOLA produces small, handcrafted batches of premium spirits.

The distillery was started by owner and master distiller, Kirby Kallas-Lewis, a former artist and tribal art dealer. Kirby has long been interested in the power that great food, wine, art, cocktails and entertaining have in connecting people to each other and to a place. Kirby studied the art and science of distilling intensively (one could say he became totally obsessed) for about 3 years prior to jumping in with both feet and creating OOLA Distillery.

OOLA is a labor of love, intellectual curiosity and commitment to the neighborhood he has called home for more than two decades. The distillery produces small, hand-crafted batches of Gins, Vodkas, Whiskeys...spirits made with a sense of place and a connection to the people who grew the raw ingredients and the man who coaxed them into their more spirited forms—gins in which you can taste the botanicals, distinctive vodkas, and whiskeys that are flavorful and smooth.
