Captive Spirits Distilling moving to Shipyard!

  • Captive Spirits Distilling

We have a very special announcement! This past week, Captive Spirits has moved into it's new home at 1138 W. Ewing Street STE C, here in Seattle. We had long overgrown our space on NW 52nd Street & are very excited for the new space. Also, do not fret: we are still very close to Ballard, on the Queen Anne side of the Ballard Bridge. The distillery is literally IN the shipyard now! We couldn't be more thrilled to have parking, space to load & unload trucks, and the ability to look out over the lovely shipyard & Ballard area that has helped Seattle become the iconic fishing base we call home.

During our transition, our distillery can not legally be open to the public. We are hoping to open our doors for our grand re-opening Spring 2017. Please follow us on social media @captivespirits to follow our progress closer. In the meantime, we look forward to sharing a martini. Please enjoy Big Gin when you hit the town. Cheers, Ben & Holly
