Craft Spirits in Portland

Craft Spirits at Clear Creek Distillery in Portland, OR

Wander up to any bar in Portland, OR and you’ll notice at least one local spirit. There’s tremendous support from Portlanders and the national scene alike. Many of these Portland spirits seem to find their ways to trendy San Francisco and New York bars. What blew me away when I visited many of these distilleries is that most of the operations are fairly small – one even fit into what appeared to me to be a converted garage! We may be seeing Portland spirits on New York shelves soon, if the influx of Moonstruck Chocolates and Olympic Provisions charcuterie are anything to go by.

I'm currently working as a freelance travel and food writer, and photographer. I spent two years at StarChefs.com, the culinary on-line magazine for the industry insider. My articles have been published in New York, NY and Richmond, VA. After graduating from Columbia University and recovering from the tragedy of not being able to read Camus books for a living, I attended The Culinary Institute of America, where my scone consumption rose drastically. Fluent in French and Italian, I've worked in some of New York's top restaurants and covered food-related stories in a number of publications, from The Richmond Times-Dispatch to Time Out New York.
