Cadée Distillery was created by Colin Campbell, a Scotsman with a passion for the natural environment and resources that the Pacific Northwest provides. Colin was enchanted by the alchemy of spirits at an nearly age with his first dram in the Laphroig Distillery in Scotland. After studying and receiving the internationally recognized gold-standard and achieving the Master Distiller qualification, from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in London. Colin went on to distilling spirits in the Middle East, crafting delicious and unique flavors.
As an aerospace engineer and serial entrepreneur, he has learned the art of creating spirits across the world at the great distilleries, and has created a local distillery on The Isle of Whidbey where he lives with his family. And a few goats.
The Scots have been documented distilling for over 500 years, as long ago as 1494. Whidbey Island offers miles of Salish Sea coastline with salty ocean breezes and a bounty of natural resources similar to Scotland.
Colin's desire is to offer handcrafted spirits for all to enjoy, give back to the community, and measure his happiness and success within the day. He wants customers to know that a real person is making these spirits from the heart, handcrafted, and locally. Cadée is dedicated to crafting only the purest spirits, from the highest quality ingredients available.
Cadée's customers continue to engage with the development of the brand as they share input and advice. The "Crafter of Spirits", Colin Campbell, responds to each suggestion personally.
Spirits: the name reflects the living art; part science, part inspiration, all pleasure.
