Portland Distillery Tour

Order this ServiceGinger & Coffee Rum from House Spirits

A craft distillation revolution...

A number of innovative small distilleries are making handcrafted, locally distilled spirits available for the first time since prohibition. The heart of this movement lies in an inconspicuous neighborhood of small warehouses and light industrial buildings in the lower east-side Industrial District of SE Portland, known as Distillery Row. They make everything from vodkas and gins, rums and whiskeys, to more specialized spirits such as absinthe, aquavit, and flavored liqueurs.

You'll receive:

  1. Private, luxury limousine/party bus door to door service.

  2. Concierge Service - We'll plan your route, pick your distilleries (unless you prefer to do this yourselves), give brief introductions/ histories at each distillery, answer questions and generally make sure everyone's havin' a great time. We'll also check out the events before you go to see if there's anything you shouldn't miss.

Let us know ahead of time if you have an interest in a distillery facility tour or anything else customizing your package. See below for distillery info. My Chauffeur recommends an early day weekend ride on the My Chauffeur bus, as you are not likely to imbibe lightly. We encourage you to drink responsibly and order a professional designated driver!  All participants must be at least 21 years old. You may view our guide to enjoying alcohol responsibly

Other limited-edition small batch spirits soon joined alongside, including whiskeys, rums, coffee liqueur and Oregon raki.

    After three years of waiting, a barrel of apple brandy is finally ready... Brandies and liqueurs from regional fruits are the specialty of Stone Barn Brandyworks, which is located just over a mile south of the other members of Distillery Row. The Northwest Cherry Brandy, Bartlett Pear Brandy, Quince Liqueur or Biggs Junction Apricot Liqueur would make phenomenal gifts with a local connection -- as would Stone Barn's various ryes, whiskeys, the Eastside Ouzo and the Pinot Noir Grappa. And when fruit is not in season, they keep making whiskey.

Now there's a dark rum, Dead Guy Whiskey, hazelnut spice rum that brings Oregon's famous filberts to the booze world, spruce gin that has a bit of a forestry flavor and a white rum. The Rogue Public House serves Rogue spirits as well as 38 beers on tap and wine.

    McMenamin's Edgefield Distillery opened in Troutdale, about 15 miles east of Portland, in 1998, and the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, located in Hillsboro, just added spirit making to its location in 2012. Although McMenamin's is best known for its funky and very cool rehabbed venues -- from chapels to old schools -- they've consistently gotten nods for their beer brewing along the way. Now the local chain can add whiskeys, gins and brandies to the menu -- all made in house.

  4. Bull Run Distillery - 2259 N.W. Quimby St.

  5. Highland Stillhouse - 201 S 2nd St., Oregon City

    Hours: 11 am-midnight Tuesday-Saturday, 11 am-10 pm Sunday.

    Its Oregon City locale keeps the iconic Highland Stillhouse well off the radar of most Portland locals. Too bad. The Stillhouse has, quite simply, the most extensive Scotch selection that you are likely to experience anywhere, including most places in Scotland. We recommend an early day weekend ride on the My Chauffeur* bus, as you are not likely to imbibe lightly. Order some Scotch you've never heard of, and while some blowhard at the other table explains that Scotch is all about the water, you will be looking out at the fine waters of the Willamette from the patio. The voluminous beer list has plenty of rare imports from the British isles, but seriously: Stick to the Islay. There are 54 bottles of it to try before you even make it to the Lowlands or the Speyside. MATTHEW KORFHAGE WW
