8/24 update: Construction- Getting to Stone Barn

Image result for construction sign graphic

Do not be deterred by all the construction happening in our neck of the woods!  The city is repaving Lafayette Street, which is incredibly potholed. So ultimately it will be a good thing.  But for now it is a pain!

You must approach heading east on Powell, and make a right on SE 20th, before the light at 21st. Then make the next right which is Pershing, and go down one block and Voila!  Stone Barn.

The construction should be done (they say) by this Friday, August 28th.

Release party for Cherry Adam Rye at North Light Sunday, January 11th from 7 to 9 pm!

Please join us at North Light   Sunday evening.  This Mississippi venue is hosting a party for the Cherry Adam! Complimentary and delicious small bites from their kitchen will be offered and samples of the whiskey will be poured. The bar will feature "Cherry on the Wing", a cocktail created by manager Emily Czarnecki, an intriguing blend of the Rye Adam, vermouth, coffee liqueur (our Red Wing) and orange bitters. Bottles of the Straight Rye will be available for purchase.

3746 North Mississippi, Portland, 97227.  There is no entrance fee, but please RSVP to Emily at emily@northlightpdx.com.

Eastside Ouzo is available!

A few years ago a bartender from Zaytinya, a Greek restaurant in Washington, D.C.  sampled our Eastside Ouzo and straight away purchased all the bottles we had left.  When we visited him later, we were treated to a smashing drink and fantastic small plates.  Over cocktails, he wondered how the ouzo would be if it were barrel aged.

It has been on our mind.  Last year we put away a small barrel and just broke into it.  Great idea, he was right! Please come by Stone Barn to try this 80 proof anise-rich spirit.  The ouzo is made from Hip Chicks do Wine pinot gris pomace and has aged in a 30 liter French oak barrel for one year.

Stone Barn is excited to participate in the upcoming  Brewstillery Festival hosted by Stormbreaker Brewing!! On Saturday, February 28th from 12 pm- 10 pm  we will join eleven other local distilleries and 18 local breweries to offer attendees intriguing couplets of beer and spirits. Some brewers created beers for a specific spirit, and there was also cross pollination regarding use of each other's barrels and trial of unorthodox aging strategies.

We are lucky to partner with both The Commons Brewery and Hair of the Dog, and to have the opportunity to showcase the versatility of our products in the company of such excellent beer. Our Andy Garrison ran with this project, subjecting himself to needed alcoholic experimentation.

We will pair our Quince Liqueur with The Commons Brewery's Citrus Myrtle - the tangy floral flavor of the quince complements the Meridian hopped, tart farmhouse ale finish replete with Buddha's Hand and Hatian orange peel.

Our pairing with Hair of the Dog was fated- Hair's Cherry Adam from the Wood and our Straight Rye Cherry Adam- our 100% stoneground organic dark aged rye, aged two years in new oak, and finished in the Cherry Adam barrel, This treatment allowed our rye to gain a complexity from the barrel's former tenant, a strong ale aged with locally grown black cherries which in turn absorbed some qualities from the barrel's original use as a bourbon cask.

Robadas, sliced so perfectly by Rich at our summer Chop Party, have the best flavor of all the apricot varieties we have tried.  A newly made batch of  Biggs Junction Apricot Liqueur is now available for sampling and purchase at our tasting room.
