Description

Westward Whiskey is an American Single Malt Whiskey distilled in Portland, the capital of Oregon in the Pacific Northwest.

Westward Whiskey is a brand made by the House Spirits Distillery. The distillery was founded by distiller Christian Krogstad in the city of Corvallis in 2004 but moved to Portland in 2005. The distillery is probably most famous for producing Aviation Gin which was eventually sold to Davos Brands in 2016 (although they still remain the brand’s distiller). A new, large distillery and tasting room was completed in 2015 which allowed the company to expand their gin production but also branch out into whiskey production. The distillery is independently operated and co-owned by NFL legend Joe Montana and seasoned CEO Thomas Mooney, among other investors. As well as this whiskey and Aviation Gin they also produce Krogstad Aquavit and Volstead Vodka.

House Spirits Distillery has always been at the forefront of craft distilling. Westward Whiskey begins with the production of an artisanal American pale ale from scratch made with Malted barley from sourced locally from farmers within the Pacific Northwest, ale yeast and a low temperature fermentation. The ale is distilled twice in custom low-reflux copper pot stills (3,000-gallon copper stainless whiskey stills, handcrafted by Vendome Copper & Brass in Louisville, KY) that are designed to create a robust spirit, and transform the fresh beer into whiskey. Westward is then aged to perfection at a relatively low proof in new, lightly toasted American oak barrels.  Once aged to taste, the distilling team mingles fully-matured barrels in small batches to achieve the whiskey’s signature flavour profile – balanced and bold, with just the right amount of spice and sweetness.

Tasting Notes

Westward Whiskey American Single Malt awards an elegantly robust and fruity aroma, with creamy vanilla and brown sugar notes. Entry to the palate shows baking spice, lush fruit, and sweet malt. The finish begins with tobacco, dark chocolate, and leather with a lingering oak sweetness that gives way to stone fruit.
