Craft distillery using local fruit to flavor small-batch, hand-crafted spirits.
Swede Hill Distilling is a true Craft Distillery located in Yakima, Washington. From the inception, our mission was to create a product and produce it to the best of our ability. The raw material we chose was the apple. Being in the heart of apple country, it only made sense. So we create our product using Washington’s
best known crop, and we know you’ll be able to taste the difference.
The Swede Hill Distilling name has a history. In the early 1900’s, Swedish immigrants came to the Yakima Valley, settled, and founded the orchards that surround our distillery. This area became known as Swede Hill because of the residents and the predominant language spoken. Kevin and Pamela Milford are the owners of Swede Hill Distilling, and Pamela’s grandparents were among those immigrants which planted the orchards where the distillery resides today.
