February 11, 2012 · Updated 9:56 AM
The owners of Whidbey Island Distillery in Langley plan to open a tasting room at their business on Craw Road.
Steven and Beverly Heising have applied for a county permit that would allow a 280-square-foot tasting room, which would be located in an existing building on the couple’s 8.2-acre property.
“We’re not doing a new building or anything like that,” said Beverly Heising.
“I’m hoping that by March or April, we will have the tasting room open,” she said.
Heising said the tasting room would be limited to offering four, half-ounce tastes per person per day. Sales are limited to two liters a day per person.
The business has gotten off to a promising start. The distillery’s Loganberry Liqueur was a big hit, with more than 400 bottles quickly spoken for.
“We sold out in a couple of weeks,” she said.
