Built with a love for craft distilling, a flair for the extraordinary and a fearless creativity—3 Howls’ spirits will always leave you howling for more. 3 Howls’ mission is to create exceptional handcrafted spirits, with our own specific Northwest flavor.
We start with distinct base ingredients like European malted barley and sweet Barbados molasses. The whiskey is fermented in state-of-the-art stainless steel tanks; the rum in a large open-top cypress ferment tank. Next, the spirits are distilled using a 300-gallon copper-packed still. All of our vodkas and gin are flavored with all natural ingredients. Finally, all of our premium craft spirits are bottled, labeled and packaged by hand for your pure enjoyment.
Though we are proudly rooted in the Pacific Northwest, inspiration for 3 Howls distillery comes from all the way across the pond. Ankle deep in a peat bog on a distillery tour in Isla, Scotland, our Founder, Will, first heard the story of the Cù-Sìth (pronounced koo-shee). Legend has it this giant hound roams Scotland’s highlands and moors, howling three times before he takes souls to the underworld.
The three howls of the Cù-Sìth, combined with a tongue-in-cheek nod to those who love to howl at the moon after a cocktail or two, morphed together to form the brand that we now fondly call 3 Howls.

Dramatic changes in her life that left her without her children, her home and neighborhood and nothing more that the prospect of minimum wage employment at an age when most of her friends were looking forward to relaxation and retirement, Diane LaVonne was forced to redefine herself and to create a new vision for her life.
When this former wife, mother, part-time caterer, martial arts instructor and community volunteer told friends about her dream to open a beautiful “home kitchen” in the heart of urban Seattle near the Pike Place Market, a place where the community could gather to connect and learn how to prepare and enjoy food, many thought it was a pipe dream. Certainly traditional small business lenders thought so, and refused to lend needed capital.
But despite a lack of the necessary funding, and the construction surprises that came from turning a garage into a commercial kitchen – Diane kept moving forward. A straight-forward, passionate, friendly force who believes in asking for what one needs - when she couldn’t afford the high end appliances necessary, she asked manufacturers and local dealers to donate them... and they did. At Diane’s Market Kitchen, you’ll find the newest Miele equipment donated by Albert Lee Appliance as well as countertop equipment donated by Kitchenaid and Cuisinart. The final cost to build and equip this incredible display kitchen? Just $50,000.
The kitchen is an intimate, beautiful, state-of-the-art "home" kitchen where Diane shares her culinary skills and experience with her "guests". Food and menus are based on what is fresh, seasonal and local; most of the items are supplied by her vendor friends at the Pike Place Market. This unique environment was created to allow her to model what cooking, surrounded by friends, can look like at its best; lots of conversation and good food without having to choose between the two. Guests can observe, or they can tie on an apron and help prepare the meal! Diane’s vision is about balance - about how to place food in its appropriate context for a life well-lived and enjoyed.
Recent guests have included a group of Microsoft Human Resource Managers after a long day of strategy and planning; a woman who received the evening class for her and her friends as a birthday gift from her boyfriend; and a local resident who gathered family together for a Thanksgiving meal. Besides regular classes and special guest chefs, future plans include children’s classes and parties.
Diane has not forgotten how difficult her transition out of hopelessness and through challenging times was, and a large part of her vision includes support of her local community by donating classes and money to benefit children’s education and women in transition.

Melrose Market is located in a triangular block of historic automotive buildings constructed in 1919 and 1926, in the west end of the Pike-Pine neighborhood, and just east of Seattle's downtown shopping district.

Our current urban landscape:
Watch the Seattle skyline today. Then watch it tomorrow. In the blink of an eye, it changes. The city we lived and worked in just ten years ago is truly unrecognizable. The growth, fueled in part by the meteoric expansion of a handful of larger corporations, is the private developer’s dream. Rents and housing prices are some of the highest in the nation. Those with resources can find an endless supply of investment opportunities in Seattle and an equal number of new commercial outlets to enjoy the windfall.
The primary focus is economic. We’re left with an explosion of new office buildings, condos, and com- mercial spaces whose core motive is profitability. The fallout? We find ourselves separated more by class, race, and socio-economic levels. The urban environment feels increasingly sterile. Culture be- comes an afterthought. And spontaneous, collective artistic expression and the experience of blending with all walks of life are limited only to the streets where raw life and interaction is always happening.
The potential to build our culture intentionally:
Love City Love is taking this raw life that has always happened on the streets throughout time, across culture and in every major city in the world, and nurturing it within safe, beautiful spaces adjacent to the frenetic development all around us.
In a neighborhood where upscale housing development and bars have claimed the landscape, Love City Love emerged as a blank canvas for the creative community to convene. We believe continuing to craft this alternative is not only possible but crucial to keep art and culture alive and thriving in our city.
The project’s purpose is:
• To be more intentional about creating an authentic culture here in Seattle that gives space for emerging artistic collaborations, for people of all ages, backgrounds and economic means to experience and participate in artistic expression and experiences that weave us together as a unified whole.
• To create a vessel for the emerging artist in all of us to grow, learn and expand beyond what we think is possible for ourselves and pursue creative ambitions in a holistic, sustainable way.
• And to build a culture that gives us an alternative to the digital world so we remain fertile to new ideas, broader perspectives, the visceral experience of a city, and our own humanity.
Love City Love has already established itself as a cultural catalyst in three buildings in Seattle, the Bauhaus building on Melrose and Pine, and the CK Graphics building at Summit and Pike, and the Azteca building on Eastlake Ave. E. By activating these otherwise empty spaces, the audience for Love City Love’s open and inclusive format has grown rapidly and received significant attention.
In each venue, Love City Love hosted art shows and pop-up shops from local artists and designers, produced on-going music and dance collaborations drawing hundreds of people every week, showcased the work of young artists
in spaces they would not otherwise have access to, and supported art-making workshops and classes for a wide range of participants. The energy and excitement is palpable, as collaborations and projects emerge amongst unlikely players, and as more people gravitate to this unique space.
The project has sustained itself through broader collaborations, photo shoots, space rentals and other paying clients who were drawn to the beauty and aesthetic vibration of Love City Love’s talented staff and curators. For public events, they have held to the principle of no alcohol to support every individual in the space to stay conscious and awake to the exchange and cultural possibilities between them.
