House Spirits Distillery
This multi-spirit distillery started in Corvallis, Oregon, in 2004 and relocated to Southeast Portland the following year. They make Aviation Gin, Krogstad Aquavit, White Dog Whiskey, and celebrated the release of Volstead Vodka to start February 2012. Their on-site tasting room and store is open every day except Monday and houses a worn wooden bar, barrels for standing drinkers to rest their glasses and bottles, and wall-to-wall shelves of product. Tours are available by reservation on Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and they host cocktail classes on Wednesday nights.
Consider buying a Distillery Row Passport, which covers pre-paid tastings at five Portland distilleries, including House Spirits, plus a map, distillery notes, and discounts.
