Aimsir Distilling Company’s Aitil House Gin is a distinctive American craft gin, developed over years of careful experimentation in their Portland distillery. Straying from traditional juniper-focused recipes, it incorporates a bouquet of botanicals, resulting in a lusher, rounder, and more beguiling flavor profile. Aromas of raspberry and peach merge with lemongrass, fresh berries, and aromatic rose on the palate, rounded off with a subtly spicy finish of cardamom and cinnamon. Released in December 2020, Aitil House Gin swiftly gained international recognition, winning prestigious awards, featuring in Forbes and Wine Enthusiast, and even making its way to Antarctica.
Aimsir’s “A Festive Holiday Gin” is a celebration in a bottle. Drawing from the craft distillery’s unwavering commitment to quality, this gin flawlessly encapsulates the festive season’s spirit. It champions bold, robust flavors without sacrificing smoothness, creating a unique sipping experience. The expertly curated botanical blend evokes the quintessential warmth of the holidays, offering a taste journey that pushes traditional gin boundaries. The distillery’s dedication to craftsmanship resonates in every sip, reflecting their award-winning excellence. As a silver medalist at the 2023 ADI, this seasonal gin offers not just a superb drink, but a shared celebration with Aimsir Distilling Company.
Aimsir Distilling’s limited release Rosé Gin is a unique spirit distilled from Willamette Valley wine damaged by wildfires, a tribute to the challenges of 2020. The gin features botanicals inspired by a Rosé wine, including fresh berries, hibiscus, peach, and pink peppercorn, which complement the earthy notes of the Willamette Valley terroir. With a nose of bright summer notes and a balanced body, the gin finishes clean. Best served slightly chilled and neat, its high botanical flavor also pairs well with classic gin cocktails. Aimsir, a Gaelic word meaning time and place, encapsulates the company’s belief in creating extraordinary moments through shared drinks.
Ingredients matter in our Portland distillery—especially for craft vodka. A delicate vodka flavor means there’s nowhere to hide. That’s why we chose French wheat as the base for our Astrid Vodka. It’s quadruple-distilled, giving our specialty vodka a rich texture, subtle sweetness, and incredibly clean finish. We bottle this at a slightly higher proof, which makes cocktails sing.
The Vættir are the supernatural entities of Norse mythology, encompassing everything from tiny house spirits to enormous giants. Vættir Aquavit liquor pays tribute to the mysterious ways of the old gods with a beguiling combination of botanical flavors like star anise, caraway, fennel, and citrus peel. Taking inspiration from the Scandinavian Midsummer tradition—Aimsir Distilling’s Vættir Aquavit debuts in time to celebrate light, warmth, and connection to nature. Vaettir Aquavit spirit features a smooth and herbaceous body. Star anise, caraway, fennel and citrus peel create a deep aroma and body. This complex and bold Aquavit alcohol is made for sipping and takes the classic aquavit cocktails to a bold new level. Try Vættir Aquavit in a Nordic Summer, an Aquavit Negroni, or add a splash of citrus. Sip this and enjoy celebrating light, warmth, and a deeper connection to nature.
Aimsir Distilling Company’s Cold Brew Bourbon is a unique blend of two great flavors: their signature wheated bourbon and Portland’s local Junior’s Roasted Coffee cold brew. This innovative fusion, reminiscent of Irish ingenuity meeting Pacific Northwest café culture, offers a rich caramel aroma, bold coffee flavors, and a smooth bourbon base. Sweet and bitter notes mingle, resulting in a lingering blend of bitter and sour on the finish. Versatile in its use, it can be enjoyed neat, on ice, or in a variety of cocktails, and even adds a flavorful twist to your morning coffee. In 2022, this award-winning Cold Brew Bourbon was recognized by the San Francisco Spirits Competition and the American Distilling Institute.
