Visitors travel to the industrial district's Distillery Row to witness the mystifying craft of the local small-batch distillers. Visitors sample fine spirits such as the spicy Burnside Bourbon or the smooth Below Deck Coffee Rum, and walk away with gourmet truffles or a souvenir glass for future toasts.
Eastside Distilling's master distiller and owner Lenny Gotter 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 tasting room, visitors sample elixirs such as the Portland Potato Vodka, their Below Deck rum line, Cherry Bomb Whiskey or Oregon Marionberry Whiskey.
