Stone Barn Brandyworks is one of six distilleries which make up Distillery Row in southeast Portland. Recently incorporated as a non-profit organization, our first official group venture is to provide all the spirits to the Time Based Art Festival, (TBA) happening now through September 19th.
You can find Distillery Row Lounge at the old Washington High School (12th and SE Stark) aka "The Works" in TBA lingo.
We'll be there, along with our fellow distillers, Friday through Sunday (September 17-19). Our bar, housed in what once was the principal's office, will be featuring favorite cocktails from Stone Barn, Integrity Spirits, Highball, House Spirits, Deco Distilling, and New Deal.
Don't have a barrel # 10 yet, but are excited to move to some beautiful new 30 gallon barrels from A&K Cooperage in Higbee, Mo that have been lightly-charred. Filled two in April 2013 with organic rye, and filled a third with an Oat and rye blend. We are intending to wait three years for these.
Barrel #9- (SOLD OUT) Released March 17, 2013- 36 bottles produced, but then we refiltered and had a meltdown of the filter which ruined 7 bottles worth- Que Lastima! There might be a shot or two left behind the bar at the Night Light Lounge on Clinton. 60% Rye, 27% Oat, 13% wheat. Single distillation, aged two years in a Missouri oak barrel coopered in the Okanagan region of Canada.

Dr. Hageman introduced us to a new, 6 month, and 24 month old spelt whiskey. Spelt has a wonderful warmth, deep color to match, and a long-lasting bright flavor on the palate, reminiscent of an Irish whiskey.
Barrel #1- (SOLD OUT) Released December 2011- 72 bottles produced.
Blend of Wheat (60%), Rye (30%), Barley Malt. Aged 14 months in American Oak (new)
We were aiming to make something close to a Canadian Blended whiskey without using the 'blenders'.
We intend to keep at least one aged whiskey in stock at our Tasting Room.
