Westward Whiskey is an American Single Malt Whiskey distilled in Portland, the capital of Oregon in the Pacific Northwest.
Westward Whiskey is made by the House Spirits Distillery, founded by distiller Christian Krogstad in the city of Corvallis in 2004 but production was moved to Portland in 2005. The distillery is probably most famous for producing Aviation gin.
Such was the success of Aviation gin, a new and much larger distillery and tasting room was built in 2015 and this 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.
House Spirits Distillery has always been at the forefront of craft distilling. Westward Whiskey begins with the production of an artisanal American pale ale made from scratch with malted barley that has been sourced locally. The ale is distilled twice in custom copper pot stills that are designed to create a robust spirit, and transform the fresh beer into whiskey.
Westward is then aged at a relatively low proof in new, lightly toasted American oak barrels. Once aged to taste, the whisky is blended into 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.
