Downtown Spirits - Seattle

Welcome to the Downtown Spirits Blog! Here you’ll find our product reviews, staff recommendations and general posts about spirits, wine, beer, products and this awesome industry that we are in.

When my brilliant Mom, Sholpan, had the idea of getting the rights to a spirits retailer license following the privatization of the spirits industry, I was finishing up my undergrad studies at Oregon State University. And when I finished school in June, I joined her in the new business venture. So when I got into the spirits industry it wasn’t only new for the State of Washington, it was new for me as well. The extent of my spirits knowledge was, well, not extensive. I knew that there’s a definite difference between vodka, gin, rum, tequila and whiskey. Or even that bourbon is made in Bourbon County, Kentucky and must be made from at least 51 percent rye. Or was that corn? Maybe that name is reserved for scotch whiskey? Anyway, I didn’t know a lot but I knew about as much as the average consumer.

But since becoming the owner of Downtown Spirits, my knowledge has grown with our business and our product selection. Now I know that during the distillation process the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ of alcohol are removed to leave behind the truest part, which is the ‘heart’ of the spirit. Or that “whiskey” versus “whisky” is a hotly debated topic amongst scotch drinkers. And most interestingly, that there’s a story behind every spirit on the market. So through the course of selecting the inventory, working with distributors, meeting the suppliers who are so passionate about their product, and the customers themselves, I’ve been picking up a lot of knowledge. And here on this blog is an opportunity for me, and our wonderful staff, to share some of that knowledge with you.

A couple of months into getting into this project, I met Marques who became my business partner. For whom I am very grateful and happy to have on-board. We hired an amazing team and in August opened the doors of Downtown Spirits.

We’re excited to learn, to grow, to taste a lot of amazing product and hope that you will support us in our venture. So thanks for catching the first Downtown Spirits post. Check back for weekly staff recommendations, send us information about new products that you find interesting, drop requests in the Suggestion Box, and come visit us at the store.
