Limited Release - 02/07/2017

$24.95

Meet our newest crush!  The third edition of our very popular Eastside Labs Gin line hit the shelves on Tuesday, Feb. 7th as very limited release spirit.  Just over 1,000 bottles were produced of this vibrant, hibiscus hued, potato vodka based gin.  The finest quality botanicals were hand-selected by Master Distiller, Mel Heim, resulting in a truly original, floral forward gin that is sure to please the most discerning palate.  You ask, why pink?  We answer, why not?!  After many experiments and months of development it was the pink gin recipe that truly reflected the fun and finesse of crafting a unique and flavorful gin.  And while hibiscus is credited as having aphrodisiac powers, we're sure you'll fall for this gin regardless.  

"Like Ron Burgandy's love of Scotch, my love of gin is borderline obsessive."   - Mel Heim, Master Distiller/Obsessive Gin Lover

“I have to admit a certain penchant for Burnside Bourbon. One of the first local Portland, Oregon spirits I was truly struck by, it has held a special place in my heart since I first tasted it a few years ago.”

Huffington Post on Burnside Bourbon

“Eastside Distilling has been named one of Portland’s top five distilleries (and there are many, many distilleries in the area), and for good reason. As reviewers have said, its burn will put some hair on your chest, but its balanced flavors will keep you coming back for more (and mixing it in your cocktails).” – Huffington Post


Whisky Critic:  Marionberry Whiskey

"Eastside would like you to slurp up all their marketing spiel about their 60% alcohol content [30 proof] Marionberry Whiskey and hope that you find its aroma to be like that of a “sweet mango” or its taste to be that of “warm brandy and stone fruit essences”. No. Ignore all that mollycoddling language. When you crack open a bottle of Eastside Distilling’s Marionberry Whiskey it smells like you just opened a top-shelf, fancy pants, extra-industrial strength bottle of Nyquil...it’s nine million times better than Fireball."

12 Hours in Portland

Portland gets a lot of cheer for its craft beer, but the craft spirits industry also deserves some accolades. Belly up to the tasting bar and try out Eastside’s selection of vodkas, rums, and whiskeys, all of which barely resemble the mass-marketed booze you’ll find at most liquor stores. The flavored spirits are particularly compelling — unlike some of the bigger players, Eastside’s Marion Berry and Cherry Bomb are made with real fruit and are not at all overly sweet. Must-buy: Below Deck Coffee Rum.


Wine & Spirits Daily with CEO

Wine and Spirits Daily recently sat down with Eastside’s chief executive Steven Earles to talk about the company’s progress and how they got to where they are.
