Black Heron Spirits is a small distillery in the shadow of Red Mountain, in West Richland, Washington. Our production facility was carved out of Eastern Washington’s inland desert, just over the ridge from some of the Northwest’s most celebrated vineyards and wineries.
Sometimes life forces you to set priorities. There is only so much time in a day and (in this case) so much room in a building. In order to serve Black Heron Spirits to a larger audience, we are reallocating space in our building at the east end of Red Mountain to focus on production. We will reserve space for a smaller, more intimate tasting room to be open by appointment only.
At the same time, Black Heron Spirits is proud to announce that its former tasting room in the front of the building will be home to Bodega Palencia, featuring both Palencia and Monarcha wines. All of this is set to take place in mid-June of 2019.
BLACK HERON COYOTE HOWL WHISKEY
A light copper appearance… Aromas of oak, toffee and vanilla that carry with a warming sensation on the palate, leading to a smooth finish… Enjoy neat or on the rocks. Distilled from an Irish blend of barley, oats and rye with a little twist of Washington, then aged 18 months in whiskey barrels.
BLACK HERON VODKA
A subtle aroma of sweetness and creamy mouth feel, followed by soft notes of grain… This vodka is perfect alone or as a part of your favorite cocktail.
BLACK HERON BOURBON WHISKEY
A light copper appearance… Aromas of oak with hints of candy sweetness, followed by soft spice… Smooth with a medium finish. Enjoy neat or on the rocks.
DESERT LIGHTNING CORN WHISKEY
Made from 100% corn, and barrel aged for two years. Mild aromas of oak and banana follow through onto the palate for smooth, medium finish. Enjoy neat or on the rocks.
BLACK HERON LEMONCELLO
A balance of lemon tartness and cane sugar sweetness makes this liqueur enjoyable for all occasions. Aroma of…lemon, of course! Made from vodka, zested lemons and just enough sugar to be refreshing. Serve over lemon sorbet, cheesecake or fruit salad or add to your regular ice tea – straight from the freezer!
sugar horse cellars
Black Heron Spirits also creates wine under the “Sugar Horse Cellars” brand. Sugar Horse Cellars’ varietals Columbia Valley Merlot and Chardonnay are available at our tasting room (see sales sheets below for more information).
Other Sugar Horse Cellars varietals are produced in small lots only at the tasting room on the east side of Red Mountain. We are currently seeking distributorship for Sugar Horse Cellars.
