SMELLS LIKE SEATTLE SPIRITS: TALES OF THE NORTHWEST’S RUMRUNNING PAST

Seattle has its fair share of stories to add to Prohibition lore, having given rise to one of the most successful bootleggers in Pacific Northwest history, Roy Olmstead. Smith Tower and The Good Bootlegger’s Guild present an educational and engaging speaker series in three parts, combining history, mythology, rum, and good old-fashioned storytelling.


Exclusive Specialty Cocktail
In honor of our rumrunning roots, we'll be featuring an exclusive specialty cocktail only available during Smells Like Seattle Spirits events. Make sure to ask for Runnin' with the Devil, a delicious cocktail that includes Appleton Estate Signature Blend Rum, FORO Amaro, lemon sherbet, lime, and absinthe rinse.


Doors open at 7:00pm and tickets are $20 per person. Seating is limited and standing room will apply if the event is sold out. A full bar and menu are available for purchase throughout the evening for your enjoyment. While we encourage you to attend all sessions, it’s not required to follow along with the storyline.

The Hard Fall: The Feds Fight Back 

Olmstead’s good guy anti-hero popularity peaks, with his remarkable popularity driven by better whiskey, lower prices, and an ethical commitment to non-violence. Olmstead is labeled in the media as “The Good Bootlegger,” but it’s too good to last. While Olmstead is beloved by many as the opposite of a Capone-style, violence-driven whiskey operation, his success attracts the country’s most innovative federal prohibition agents to Seattle who determines – using new technology – to bring the Olmstead empire crashing down.
