  • Starting Your Own Craft Distillery
    distillery
    Oregon has been a pioneer in the craft brewing industry since the 1980s, when breweries in the Pacific Northwest sparked the national enthusiasm for micro-brewed craft beers. Today, the same pioneering spirit is fueling the development of the craft distilling industry - the production of small batch, handcrafted distilled spirits in Oregon.

    Responding to this growing trend, Oregon law expanded to allow new business opportunities for craft distillers, and to help to promote the industry. Craft distilleries can now offer tasting samples of their products at their distillery or at a separate tasting room, or sell their products by the glass or drink at a restaurant at their distillery or another location.
