THE HAWTHORNE SERIES
Welcome to the neighborhood! In the heart of midtown Bend, Oregon we make premium whiskey and spirits on the corner of NE Hawthorne Avenue and NE 1st Street.
Here we honor our location by releasing distillery exclusive spirits. The Hawthorne Series is a celebration of unique, small-batch whiskeys and spirits. These single barrel projects explore possibility through collaboration and creativity in distilling.
Guided by our community values, we repurpose casks and partner with businesses that range from coffee roasters to winemakers in our region. We use these locally sourced ingredients and materials to produce limited editions that cannot be found outside of the distillery’s bottle shop.
Available in limited batches.
BOTTLED IN BOND BUCKWHEAT WHISKEY
Distilled from 100% buckwheat, this unique spirit was double distilled in our 100% copper kothe. Distilled to 150 proof and aged 5 years in medium char casks from Kelvin Cooperage. Aroma is herbal but nutty with mint, dill and leather notes. The herbal quality blossoms on the palate with sweetness up front.
RAKIA GRAPPA BRANDY
Pomace from Maragas Winery was distilled pot-style in our 400 liter kith. Aged five years on a French oak cask from Tonnellerie Saury that held Oregon Pinot Noir. The aroma is floral yet buttery with orange and caramel undertones. The palate is citrusy with a dry pinot noir finish.
Spirit distilled from Halloween jack-o-lanterns and freshly harvested corn. Aged 5 years on a retired wheat cask. Aroma is citrusy though herbal and sweet notes are also pronounced. Our extended aging process lends a silky smooth mouthfeel to the balanced fruit and savory notes of this unique spirit.
What happens to our Merrylegs Genever after it rests in an ex-bourbon barrel for 5 years? The spirit changes to a pale honey hue, and the delicate botanicals are given a deep, earthy makeover. Our Aged Merrylegs has aromas of grass and licorice, and a floral earthiness on the tongue. Sippable, or use to replace tequila in your preferred margarita recipe.
