The 13th Annual Tales of the Cocktail® starts right here. Before heading off to drink in all that this year’s festival has to offer, stop by registration to pick up your goodies, shop The Market at Tales and enjoy a Westland Boulevardier as your first Tales of the Cocktail® cocktail.

Emerson Lamb is president and co-founder of Westland Distillery. Started in 2009 with the goal of putting the state of Washington on the map as a world class place to make single malt whiskey, today Westland is the largest such distillery in the United States. As a family business Westland brings the legacy of five generations of forestry, stewardship of the land, and long term thinking on the leading edge of the North American continent to the whiskey industry. Emerson lives in Seattle, Washington but has lots of frequent flier miles.
