We just wanted to live in the mountains and make great spirits. That’s just what we have been doing since 1996, when we released Crater Lake Vodka and Gin to the people of Oregon to enjoy. We are America’s most award-winning small-batch distillery and have ignited the craft cocktail revolution.

In the past 20 years we have grown. Releasing new products, such as infused vodkas (Hazelnut Espresso, Pepper, and Sweet Ginger), Reserve products, ground-to-bottle Estate products, Special Projects (Hatch Green Chile Vodka, Northwest Berry Vodka), and Rye Whiskey. Also, we have expanded out of Oregon and are distributed in 26 states.

In 2010 we moved our distillery from Bend to a 24-acre farm property in Tumalo, Oregon to get ourselves a little more elbow room. There we have a tasting room that serves up free tastings and tours seven days a week, as well as bottle sales and a gift shop.
