In 1897, two thousand hardy fortune seekers broke from the stampede to Dawson and followed their own lonely trail 175 miles above the arctic circle to remote Coldfoot, Alaska. Only 200 held on to stake their claim. They stayed not for the gold, which was scarce and hard won, but for their total independence and clarity of purpose.
For Westland and our partners at Filson, these determined few are representative of our shared belief in one’s steadfast commitment to their own path, and that the integrity of their work and the depth of their experience is its own reward. This whiskey serves as a tribute to their unrelenting spirit, and as an inspiration to endure.
