A craft distillery is one step closer to opening in Silverdale.

The state Liquor Control Board approved a license for Tucker Distillery at 5451 NW Newberry Hill Road on Dec. 30.

blog.tuckerLast time we checked in with Dave and Jeanette Tucker they were wading through the federal, state and local permitting process. Now Dave says the distillery can open to the public once it has its labels approved, a process that should be completed by March.

The Tuckers have already begun distilling their first batches. They hope to have 200 to 500 bottles on hand when the tasting room opens.

Moonshine corn whiskey and vodka are first on their list. They plan to also produce a true whiskey and brandy to age.

The Tucker Distillery will open in a 1,300-square-foot building near Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue. A 240-square-foot tasting room is planned for the front.

It joins Seabeck Spirits and Bainbridge Organic Distillers in Kitsap.
