Portland has long been known for its microbrew and wine scenes. But the latest local boozing trend is small-batch distilleries, tiny D.I.Y. outfits cooking up everything from bourbon to aquavit. Most line the southeast side of town on what has come to be known as Distillery Row. Among our favorites are House Spirits, whose old-timey apothecary offers tastings of Dutch-inspired Aviation Gin, Russian-Polish style Medoyeff Vodka, and whatever else they're tinkering with in the distillery out back. Locally made bourbon chocolates, vintage cocktail books, bitters, and tiki syrups are also available. Integrity Spirits focuses on botanicals like Oregon's first locally produced absinthe and hazelnut-infused vodka. Vodka is also the drink of choice at the all-organic New Deal, which adds savory flavors like basil. Across town in Northwest is the granddaddy of the distillery movement, Clear Creek. It's been creating liquors with local produce for 25 years, including a pear brandy with a pear grown in the bottle.—Colleen Clark
