Swede Hill: Another Distillery in the Yakima Valley

swede_hill_apple_pie logoSavannah Tranchell with the Yakima Herald Republic posted a great piece on a new distillery in the Yakima Valley, Swede Hill. Here’s an excerpt:

The word “moonshine” invokes all sorts of images: Backwoods bootleggers hiding stills in the Appalachians and evading law enforcement; homemade stills blowing up in the basement; incorrectly made liquor causing blindness.

But this isn’t a reality TV show, Kevin Milford isn’t some backwoods hick, and Swede Hill Distilling’s Apple Pie Moonshine may be strong enough to make you see double — but everything about this Yakima Valley operation is on the level.  Milford and his wife, Pam, are closing in on the end of their first year making and selling liquor commercially, and the two-person operation is entering a new stage of growth.

  1. We meet you at the Roots and vines in Yakima. I have to say your cherry moonshine is the best stuff I have tasted in a long time. I wish we could have bought a gallon while we where there. Just loved it.
