Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is meticulously hand crafted by House Spirits Distillery in the heart of Portland, Oregon.
Early on, the Westward whiskey washes were brewed in collaboration with iconic Portland breweries including Breakside, Alameda, and Rogue. Since November 2015, the company has brewed every wash at its state-of-the-art distillery and brewhouse in Portland’s Central Eastside District.
Westward American Single Malt Whiskey is double-distilled using 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.
