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.

I came in for tastings of each of their offerings and got stuck on the absinthe. It was prepared in the traditional way with the drippy thingy over a sugar cube. During the chit chat the owner gave us some recommendations of to-do's around town....More

This was a very fun experience for adults only. This couple owns and distills their own brand of spirits. They don't mix drinks but let you sample ingredients such as vodkas, bloody mary mix, and their drinkable vinegars. Enjoy sampling and good conversation with the...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

Vinegars. Yup. Vinegars. All kinds of flavors. Great for mixing with drink. We love mixing them with sparkling water and makes for a great drink instead of a sugary sofa. Vodkas and whiskeys are also awesome. It's a chill place. Not usually that busy but...More
