Westward American Single Malt Whiskey

,

Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is a grain to glass, double pot distilled single malt born out of Portland, Oregon.

A celebration of the American pioneer spirit, Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is inspired by the best of the American craft beer and whiskey traditions. Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is the whiskey expression of Oregon’s brewing culture, distilled in Portland and then perfected by years of maturation at the company’s rack house in Clackamas.

FERMENTATION – Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is made from a wash of 100% Northwest two-row pale malted barley. Westward’s team of gifted brewers and distillers embraces the American craft beer philosophy, fermenting at low temperatures for extended periods of time using ale yeast to produce spicy, bright and fruity notes.

DISTILLATION – Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is double pot-distilled, starting with a 3,000 gallon pot still that is one of the largest in the country and was handcrafted by Vendome Copper & Brassworks in Louisville, KY, and finishing in a 700 gallon custom pot still designed by House Spirits and built by a Canby, Ore. metalworks. The short, open heads ensure that both pot stills produce a distillate that is robust and rich in congeners.

AGING – Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is aged to taste in new charred American oak barrels, allowing Oregon’s dry, warm summers and wet, cool winters to perfect its rich, smooth flavor.

Tasting note: 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.
