WHY HERE: A distillery with its own related bar is an unusual setup, even in 2018. The company closed the Pike Street location in 2017, but the cozy Sol Liquor Lounge in Capitol Hill offers up cocktails featuring the distillery’s vodkas, gins and agricole-style rums. Meanwhile, the distillery now focuses on production and distribution but offers a tasting room.
WHY NOW: Each year near the holidays, Sun Liquor produces a single batch of a boozy house-made aged Eggnog. It sells out quickly at the distillery, but you can find a glass at Sol throughout December.
