Freeland Spirits, was founded by Jill Kuehler in 2017 and takes its name from Kuehler’s grandmother, a personal role model whom she calls Meemaw, who (somewhat ironically) was a lifelong nondrinker but taught her women can be whatever they want to be. Freeland Spirits has a “grain-to-glass” philosophy and creates superior spirits that celebrate all the Northwest has to offer. Master Distiller Molly Troupe has a background in biochemistry and a Masters Degree in Distillation from Heriot Watt University in Scotland. The Freeland Spirits portfolio includes American gin and Bourbon, with a rye whiskey slated for release in 2019. For more information, visit www.freelandspirits.com.
