This was such a great find on our trip to Astoria. We went home with several bottles because they were all so delicious. The gin is my favorite but my husband loved the absinthe. Very friendly and you can even bring your dog inside.

This place is incredible and so much fun! They make some of the best flavored vodkas I have ever had. Be sure to do a tasting and don't shy away from the drinking vinegars. The flavor combos they come up with are not only unique,...More

Pilot House Distilling's AO Whisky is light and presumably young, but deliciously warm vanilla-y, and surprisingly smooth. It's one of my favorite Oregon spirits. They also make some great gins, an absinthe, and a rum. I've stopped into their tasting room in Astoria a few...More
