Visiting the Heritage Distilling Company

Gig Harbor Washington is a small little quaint town that has a population of around ten thousand people. Gig Harbor is the name of the bay that is located there and it also doubles as the name of the town which is located in Pierce County. Gig Harbor’s claim to fame is that it is the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. The climate in Gig Harbor is on the cooler side with the average temperature clocking in at about fifty-nine degrees Fahrenheit. You can expect to see snow during the winter months and you will also see more rain here from September through about January. It will usually rain about half the days during the month of December. This is a great place for you and your family to visit on your next vacation. You will not find a shortage of things to do and attractions to see while you are here. One of the biggest attractions here is the Heritage Distilling Company.
