FAQs

What is Olympia Artesian Vodka made from?

Corn & Artesian Water. 

Is Olympia Artesian Vodka gluten-free? 

Yes. Our vodka is distilled from corn, so it's naturally gluten-free. 

What makes the water used to craft Olympia vodka different? Why does it matter?

The artesian water that we use is untreated. The water is hand-drawn from a well that originally fed the Olympia Brewery. We haul the water about 3 miles across town, 1000 gallons at a time. The water contains natural minerals from the filtration process, deep within the Earth. The Tumwater artesian water has such a rich history in our area. In 1895, Leopold Schmidt sent 2 demijohns of water to the Whal-Henius Institute for testing. After receiving the test results, Mr. Schmidt announced, “With this water I believe I can brew better beer than ever”! (We think he was on to something).

Where can I buy Olympia Artesian Vodka?

Olympia Artesian Vodka is currently available in Washington, Oregon, Montana, and California. We are hoping to expand into additional markets like: Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Alaska & Wyoming.

Will you be coming out with additional products?

Yes, we will be launching our first flavored vodka in early 2023. Follow us on social media for announcements including our “flavor release” or sign up for updates. 

Where can I find Olympia Beer?

As announced by Pabst Brewing Co in January, 2021, "Sadly, we have not been able to find a solution to the challenges posed by reduced beer sales and have had to make the difficult decision of temporarily pausing production of Olympia Beer," the company said on the beer's Instagram page. (Note: Olympia Artesian Vodka is not affiliated with the production, sales or distribution of Olympia Beer).

More about the brand: 

When did Olympia Distilling Company first open?

We were previously operating out of Olympia, WA as Shoebox Spirits. In 2018, we jumped at the opportunity to rebrand to Olympia Distilling Co when Pabst Brewing approached us about working on a distilled spirit using the legacy “Olympia” brand. The new Olympia Distilling Co, in Tumwater, WA, was built out in 2019 and became operational in early 2020.

What does being given full local control from Pabst mean to you?

We are thrilled to know that we have been given the opportunity and responsibility to continue this legacy Pacific Northwest brand. By having local control, we will be able to pivot quickly and respond to the ever changing market. We already have plans of expanding the brand into additional distilled spirits products. In short, we feel blessed.

What are you looking forward to with the future of Olympia Vodka? 

We are looking forward to expanding our market footprint and brand awareness. We have aggressive goals, which include becoming the premier “West Coast Vodka”. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and incredible support that we have received so far. The future of Olympia Vodka is very bright!
