They are capturing the spirit of Oregon with the new products from Oregon Spirit Distillers. The product recently got approval to be distributed statewide. Owner Brad Irwin says it's been a labor of love for many years. "The production of spirit is a fascinating combination of craft and science. I discovered it, mostly on accident. But it really captured my attention. Right now there's this movement towards craft distillation, where a lot of local small local producers of spirits can be reflective of their local community." Oregon Spirit Distillers offers handmade vodka right now, but in a few weeks, they plan to launch a marionberry cordial and they also are barreling some whisky that should be available in 2014. Irwin says they will also offer a specially designed spirit once a month, only in the tasting room. Currently, their tasting room on Butler Market Road is only open on Saturdays.
