I was a little trepidatious about tasting spirits straight, but figured that would be the best way to actually taste the nuances of flavor. I was not disappointed. The spirits were good and the service great. I didn't purchase anything, but would consider in the future.

Had a awesome time for company xmas party. They have expert bartenders give you a class on mixology - which was VERY informative. Highly recommended for a group activity.

House Spirits moved into their new location about a year ago. It's located along Willamette River under I-5 in Distillery Row. The facility is fenced off and looks as if it's part of a warehouse district. Once you park and walk through their patio area and into their tasting room, the experience changes dramatically. The gray and black color scheme... More

We literally stumbled upon this place after having a lovely lunch at Olympia Provisions down the street (go check it out!!), our server recommended it and we couldn't turn it down. They do both a straight spirits and a cocktail tasting. We did one of each and shared. It was great because we got to sit outside and they brought... More

I want to specify that we were at the airport outlet, not the actual distillery, this place is awesome nonetheless. I typically do not go in for flavored liquors but we were looking for a gift for some friends and I was intrigued by the coffee liquor. I had my wife try it first and she was so impressed I... More

Richelle led an awesome tour of the distilling & bottling operation. Very knowledgeable. The whiskey tasting was also also informative comparing the different styles & fun twist at the end with a blind test. Highly recommend if you live in or are visiting Portland.

The new tasting room and facility at 65 SE Washington St. is a great venue. There serve small tastings of cocktails served with their alcohol in flights or individual. We were lucky to get a private tour of the facility but they do offer them once a day to the general public. It is a state of the art facility... More
