Eastside Distilling's master distillers and long-time friends Lenny Gotter and Bill Adams began concocting recipes in 2008, quickly stocking liquor cabinets and bar shelves with the potent fruits of their collaboration. Their tasty lineup of spirits draws accolades from fans near and far, with the small-batch outfit taking home hardware including a gold medal at the 2012 MicroLiquor Spirit Awards and SIP Magazine's runner-up in the Best of Spirits section for Best Brown Liquor for their Burnside Bourbon, _Portland Mercury_’s 2011 Readers' Choice award for favorite distillery, and a silver medal from the 2011 World Spirits Competition for their Below Deck Coffee Rum. Within the duo’s tasting room, visitors sample elixirs such as the Portland Potato Vodka, or the bold 96-proof Burnside Bourbon, named for the Union Army General famous for trademarking his facial hair.
