Thank you for all our Stone Barn Friends who came to say hello.

Stone Barn Joins this Year's Southeast Portland Art Walk!

We hope you'll stop by Adrienne Stacey's pottery studio as you are doing the Southeast Art Walk, on 3434 SE Brooklyn Ave. At her place you can taste Stone Barn's Quince Liqueur, Nocino, and Straight Rye Whiskey while you mingle with some fantastic ceramics.

Oregon's Finest, so fine!

Nocino adds a crucial depth to this perfect cocktail we had earlier this week at Irving Street Kitchen.  We stopped in for drinks and dinner with our friends Gail & Rich, between snow and ice storms.

I think we had three of these.

6 cases of Cherry Adam Straight Rye found on Bainbridge Island!

We thought we were all sold out of the 2015 release of our 'Cherry Adam' Straight Rye Whiskey.  On a recent trip to see the Seahawks slaughter the Panthers, we visited our distributor on Bainbridge Island and found 6 cases in his warehouse on the tip of the island.  We brought these back to Portland for the Christmas season.

The mash bill is 100% stone-ground rye from Bob's Red Mill. After distillation,  the whiskey aged two years in toasted American oak barrels.  It was then finished for two months in a barrel that previously held Hair of the Dog's "Cherry Adam from the Wood", a dark and strong ale aged on local cherries.  It is bottled in numbered bottles.

To quote Stone Barn distiller Andy Garrison, "the deep cherry and dark chocolate from Adam are a good fit with the spicy, drier character of our rye." 

Nocino 2016 bottled and available!

We picked the walnuts for this year's Nocino in early July, harvesting the orchard of an old friend on Parrot Mountain as well as our favorite local walnut trees in Portland.

The recipe is our traditional one, infusing the unripe walnuts into a blend of our rye whiskey, brandy and spices. It is complex, a digestif poured straight, a fun replacement for vermouth in a Manhattan, a topping for ice cream, or a shot in an Irish Coffee....

Now available for tasting and purchase in our tasting room and the variety of farmer's markets and holiday fairs we will be attending in December!
