Just in time for the holidays, Westport Winery and Ocean’s Daughter Distillery are releasing amazing new products. As the company continues to recover from the devastating loss of their distillery to fire in May, they have brought back more favorites and added new selections.
Van Ghost, Ocean Daughter Distillery’s delicious vanilla cream vodka, featuring a Starry Night-inspired mermaid on the label, is available in both 100ml (double the size of airplane bottles, but able to be taken in carry-on luggage) and the full size 750ml bottle. This is especially delicious with fresh orange juice.
The distillery’s Barrel Ride whiskey is now a single malt chock full of barley with lots of oak.
A new version of Undine has been unveiled with a bubbly mermaid graphic representing the fruit flavored vodka. It is somewhere between Fruit Loops and Skittles, and tons of fun in cocktails or delightful on the rocks in a Skinny Beach cocktail with muddled lemon and water.
Wahine Hi’u I’a is now a macadamia coconut flavored rum. It is used in the featured cocktail in the Sea Glass Grill called Mermaid Water with equal parts Wahine Hi’u I’a and Yo Ho pineapple, peach, ginger rum, a dash of blue curacao infusion topped with pineapple juice and a squeeze of fresh lime. It is blue bliss in a bucket!
In continuing the blue bliss theme, Westport’s Lighthouse Riesling has returned in the highly sought-after blue bottles from the past. Whether you love the bottle or the wine, it is beautiful to behold and a treasured collectible.
The new vintage of Message In A Bottle features Grenache picked at Sugarloaf Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. Nearly a blush, this is a light, dry and fruity red wine appreciated by both red and white wine drinkers.
These new products are available to sample in the winery tasting room, the International Mermaid Museum, and served in the Sea Glass Grill.
Westport Winery Garden Resort’s 15-acre property is located halfway between Westport and Aberdeen at 1 South Arbor Road, Aberdeen WA. It is home to the award-winning Sea Glass Grill and Mermaid Lounge, Ocean’s Daughter Distillery, and the International Mermaid Museum, all of which are open daily 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call 360.648.2224 for more information or visit the Westport Winery website.
