Local Solar Distillery Hosts Their Grand Opening

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA- Local distillery, Solar Spirits, located in Richland held their grand opening, ribbon cutting ceremony Friday evening. 

We met up with Kris Lapp, one of the partners today and he gave us a behind the scenes look at the preparations going on earlier Friday. The Solar Spirits employees were bottling their vodka, labeling and sealing the bottles. 

They were expecting about 300 people at the grand opening this evening but Lapp told us he wouldn't be surprised if more showed up. 

The distillery is different from the rest because of their ability to use solar power. Lapp says they're more than a distillery but also a technological advancement for the Tri-Cities.
