The Christensen Family is dedicated to the care of Deception Pass State Park in tribute to their father, Johannes Christensen, who was the Park Superintendent from 1949-1956 at Deception Pass State Park. The family lived in the park in the log cabin, which was also used as the park office. The family has given significant annual donations in support of park benches, building maintenance, and the renovation of the Park Amphitheater. Johannes is featured in the book, “Exploring Deception Pass”.

Whidbey Island Distillery
Whidbey Island Distillery is a family owned business run by three generations of the Heising family. They set out in 2009 to make distilled spirits on Washington’s own Whidbey Island, and in September 2011 they sold the first bottle of their Loganberry Liqueur.
Bev and Steve Heising bought 9 acres of beautiful Whidbey Island hillside in 2009. They renovated existing buildings to include a distillery building (the Bunker), a residence (the Bunk House), a tasting room, and other multi-use buildings on the property. Since then the Whidbey Island Distillery has become a recognized producer of some of finest spirits in the world. Among numerous awards, our Blackberry Liqueur holds a 98 rating by the Beverage Testing Institute making it the highest rated spirit (of any kind) produced in North America.
