The 2nd Annual Oregon Distillers Festival is less than a month away, featuring 20 Oregon Distillery Guild members from around the state including Bull Run Distillery, Clear Creek Distillery, Rogue Spirits, Stone Barn Brandy Works, Vivacity Fine Spirits, North Coast Distillery, McMenamins Edgefield Distillery and McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Distillery.
There are sure to be a number of classic favorites as well as some new faces including McMenamins sneak preview of three new spirits – Aval Pota, Billy Whiskey and Philbert Hazelnut Liqueur. We are particularly excited for the Aval Pota, a blend a heart-cut whiskey, Hood River apples, and cinnamon. It sounds like a welcome treat to combat the slow approaching summer, but hopefully by the time the festival rolls around, there will be sunshine to match the warmth of our boozy bellies. List of participating distillers below. See you there!

The meadows of McMenamins Edgefield are a perfect summer backdrop to experience more than 100 handcrafted spirits from around the state. Guests can sip and saunter along a backdrop of blue skies and yellow sunflowers while choosing samples from some of the best Oregon-made spirits, sipping cocktails, and nibbling on booze-friendly nosh from Black Rabbit Restaurant Executive Chef Kenny Giambalvo.
