Craft Whiskeys from Oregon

Craft whiskeys narrow

We have three phenomenal craft whiskeys from Oregon that are handcrafted and small-batch:

Henry Du Yore’s Bourbon (65 RMB): A premium American bourbon (at least 51 percent corn and aged at least two years in new barrels) with a spirited twist, containing influences of rye and barley. Named after the moonshiner Henry du Yore. Wine Enthusiast gave this straight bourbon 93 points and named it one of the Top 50 Spirits of 2013.

Whipper Snapper (50 RMB): Made from 79% Kentucky white dog corn whiskey and 21% malted barley whiskey, this spirit defies classification — it is, in fact, not exactly a bourbon but a “spirit whiskey,” aged one to three years in Pinot noir and American whiskey barrels (in fact, eight barrels are used for each bottling). The result is utterly unique.

McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt (70 RMB): A diamond among gems: McCarthy’s is an American single malt made using peated barley from Islay and aged for three years in Oregon. It scored an astounding 96 out of 100 on Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2008, and was praised by renowned whisky expert Michael Jackson as one of the “Ten Best American Whiskeys” in 2004.
