Also, if the temperature is in the 90s, we may close early….please call if in doubt. (if you have an appointment, we will of course call you)
We are elbow-deep in walnut trees, picking the now olive-sized nuts for our barrels of Nocino. And we are blending up our Strawberry Liqueur from Hood berries. After a several year hiatus it is good to be making this spirit again. The fragrance as we mix our strawberry spirit with the juice we have cooked is to die for.
Soon we will embark on an apricot extravaganza, processing Robadas for our Biggs Junction Apricot Liqueur, and hopefully get to pick cots again in the Dalles.
Whiskey-wise, we are making rye whiskey like mad to stockpile enough for our Nocino and Peach Rock & Rye, and of course for our barrel-aged Straight Rye Whiskey. Dark Roast Rye, another Stormbreaker, and Bourbon are all on the release agenda over the next few months.
Coastal farmers markets have begun and we have been enjoying our Manzanita/Neskowin/Astoria/Cannon Beach circuit, with some boogie-boarding thrown in if the tide is right.
We continue our weekly booth at PSU, and Hollywood, South Waterfront, Peoples, King, and Montavilla are sprinkled in one or two times per month. This summer we will try out a new market- the Clatskanie Garlic Fest!
Stone Barn is open for curbside pickup 6 days a week, and we offer shipping within Oregon. We also now offer delivery in the greater Portland area through a service Lowkel- please search for our spirits on their site to place your order.
Many of our spirits are available at your local liquor store- for example Nocino, Dark Roast Rye, Pear Brandy, Peach Rock & Rye, Pinot Noir Grappa, Apricot, and Prune Liqueur- go the the Oregon Liquor Search site to check.
If you are out of state, and you want spirits shipped, please check for availability at our Washington State distributor High Spirits in Poulsbo.
Hope to see you at a market or our tasting room!
Stone Barn Brandyworks makes craft spirits that capture the essence of the Northwest. We are a human-scale distillery invested in our people, ingredients, and products. Our spirits are fermented and distilled in our Southeast Portland distillery, using local and organic ingredients whenever possible.
We started out in 2009 making fruit brandy and liqueurs inspired by the European tradition. Seeking out the best Northwest fruits became an obsession. Later, we added a single barrel whiskey program that treats grain and oak with that same attention to provenance and quality.
These days, we measure our year in fruit. In spring, it’s tart stalks of crimson rhubarb and blushing Rainier cherries. Summer brings Hood strawberries, velvety apricots, and inky haskap berries. The first bins of apples, quince, and pears mark the onset of fall. And the dark days of winter may not have fruit, but they were made for whiskey.
We’re located at 3315 SE 19th Suite, Suite B, Portland, Oregon, 97202.
We now offer gift certificates, redeemable at our distillery and at all our events, such as farmers markets. Order online.
