Washington Federal Bank is a national bank, but we’ve tried to act more like a reliable next door neighbor.  Ever since we got our start back in 1917, we’ve been helping to build healthy, thriving communities.  And, as active members of our communities, we’re truly invested in clients like you—delivering simple, straightforward banking solutions to help you make the most of your money.

 We believe in supporting our communities. That’s why we created the Washington Federal Foundation—to facilitate giving to local nonprofits like Cornerstone Community Housing that serve the needs of low- and moderate-income individuals.

Heritage Distilling Co. (HDC) is a craft distillery based in Gig Harbor, Washington. HDC is the most awarded craft distillery in North America by the American Distilling Institute 6 years in a row (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019).  Each of the Heritage Distilling Co. product lines and services were developed with a particular story in mind, because “Every Spirit has a Story”®

We are majority owned by women and family operated. As a Craft Distillery we manage the entire process of making our spirits by hand – from identifying and working directly with the farmers growing our grains, to ensuring the purity of our water source, to milling the grain, making our own mash and wort and running our own custom made stills – we strive to maintain the best of the “Field to Flask”™ ethos.

In this way you can be assured the hand-crafted, small batch spirits we produce meet the highest standards. We pour a little of our heart into every hand crafted, small batch of spirits we make.
