New Deal Distillery
Making Better Booze
All distilleries offer spirits, but few offer hope. That's not the case with New Deal Distillery, whose manifesto reminds readers that ". . . things can suck, but that you can still find your good things and your joy."
Crafting the Product
Celebrating 10 years in business, New Deal Distillery uses a custom-made Christian Carl copper still to make all of their products and spirits, which range from the award-winning Hot Monkey vodka to the savory, full-bodied winter gin.
Drinking on Distillery Row
Stop by the distillery's tasting room to sample its offerings—including those from the Distiller's Workshop Series. Located on Portland's Distillery Row, New Deal is open to visitors Wednesday–Sunday, five out of the seven days of the week that are best for boozing.
