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.
