Seattle, Washington Nathan’s distillery dream starts and continues with the one key word, and that is family. His story begins with the family ranch in South Texas that has been held in his family for 5 generations. The family name is known for “quality, independence and hard work”. These are all values that he lives by today at 2 Bar Spirits. Pictures of the ranch and his family are hung proudly in the distillery to show the roots of this great spirit. The Kaiser family should be proud to know that their brand, which extended into the craft distilling industry, is living the values that were set for so many years ago.
Creating a bourbon is becoming an art form for many craft distilleries. From choosing their grains to diluting the spirit to the right proof becomes an actual science. Nathan chooses to use grains that are from the Northwest region, which goes into his Moonshine, Straight Bourbon and other projects that they chose to create, such as their Rye whiskey. Nathan believes that a distiller should focus on one product and be great at it, so he chose to focus on moonshine/bourbon. With a very small crew this distillery creates high quality products that can be found in a number of states across the US.
I highly recommend that you check out 2 Bar Spirits and try their spirits. See if you can get a glimpse of the four ladies photos that are posted in the back. I don’t want to spoil it for you but a photo here will give you some clues.
