Born in the Northwest, Westward Whiskey was founded in 2004 by former brewer and winemaker Christian Krogstad who had a vision to bring American Single Malt, inspired by the distinctive culture, climate, and natural ingredients that come together in the Northwest, to the people. It's worth noting that at the time, there were no more than about three dozen craft distilleries in the U.S. Today, Westward Whiskey is lead by Christian and Thomas Mooney who joined the team in 2011. The distillery is a proud leader among more than 2,200 producers, bringing bold, robust and delicious American Single Malt to the world.

Westward strives for perfection through Minimalist Distilling, a philosophy pioneered by their founders that begins by selecting the highest quality ingredients. Their purposefully inefficient production process brings out the flavor of the grain and other natural ingredients. Every step is meant to express flavor; never to strip away or mask impurities.

Westward American Single Malt begins by brewing a delicious, artisanal American ale, from scratch, using locally malted barley, ale yeast, and a slow, low-temperature fermentation. The fresh beer is then distilled twice in custom low-reflux pot stills designed to create a robust spirit, transforming our fresh beer into whiskey. Westward is aged to perfection in new, charred American Oak barrels, then mingled in small batches to achieve Westward’s signature flavor profile – balanced and bold, with just the right amount of spice and sweetness.

Taking their American Single Malt as the base, this expression builds on that solid foundation while paying tribute to Oregon's Willamette Valley. It's Pinot Noir that thrives the most in this particular wine country. The single malt is finished for up to 2 years in French oak wine casks from Willamette Valley wine producers, resulting in a fruity spirit that still lets the whiskey's robust character shine through.
