Instructor Bio:

Matt Glenn and his parents (Jeff-Dad & Helen-Mom) own and operate Highside Distilling on Bainbridge Island. Inspired by a trip to the Highlands and Speyside regions of Scotland and the craft beverage culture of the Pacific Northwest, the idea for Highside Distilling was born. The mission of Highside is to provide a uniquely Pacific Northwest experience to the time honored craft of fermentation, distillation, and aging of spirits. Whether it be Single Malt Whiskey, Gin, or Amari, all of our products are a nod to tradition, with a unique character that captures and defines the spirit of this great region.   

The Glenn Family started this business with the help of close family and friends and run everything from production to sales and marketing and everything in between. They also make some pretty unique and tasty cocktails in their tasting room on the Island. They’re constantly iterating on seasonal cocktail menus with Highside spirits and other local PNW ingredients to truly capture all of the amazing flavors of this region!
