Inspired by both Chef and Sommelier sensibilities, Wildwood Spirits Co. blends ‘farm to table’ and ‘vineyard to bottle’ to create distillates in a unique & distinctive ‘farm to distillery’ fashion.
In the spirit of farmers from colonial times, where making distillates maximized local crops by preserving excess fruit and grain, Wildwood Spirits Co. sources nearly all of its ingredients from local farms. Ninety percent of the produce used for distilling Wildwood Spirits Co. spirits, from winter wheat to Braeburn apples to Douglas fir, is grown in Washington state.
Along with Chef John Howie, Erik Liedholm is the co-owner and distiller of Wildwood Spirits, Co., maker of award-winning spirits located just downstairs from Beardslee Public House. Erik is an Advanced Level Sommelier (Level III) whose wine lists have received numerous awards, including Best New Wine List in America by Food and Wine Magazine and the Best of Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator. Erik has won the National Somm Slam competition at the International Chef Congress in New York, was named Sommelier of the Year by Seattle Magazine and received The Seattle Times Walter Clore Award for outstanding achievement in the wine industry.
Chef John Howie’s restaurants, ranging from casual, scratch-cooking establishments to fine dining, are renowned for infusing innovation into evolving seasonal menus that feature the highest quality, sustainable meat and seafood with locally sourced ingredients. In recognition of being chef and proprietor of some of the Seattle Area’s most prominent restaurants, Chef Howie was nominated Outstanding Restaurateur by the James Beard Foundation Awards in 2013 and has been invited to be guest chef at the James Beard House on five separate occasions. Chef Howie and his restaurants are as recognized for philanthropic generosity as they are for culinary achievement. Since 2002, the John Howie Restaurant Group has received numerous awards for philanthropy and community involvement, and has given more than $6 million to hundreds of charitable organizations.
