It’s what brought its founder Christian Krogstad to Oregon in 1991 for an apprenticeship in craft brewing and a job with McMenamins. After spending 12 years brewing beer, he noticed a similar evolution happening with craft spirits: “There was some overlap between brewing and distilling,” Krogstad explains.

He first started trying self-funded experiments with neutral spirits like vodka, eventually moving to gin. House Spirits’ Aviation Gin is their oldest product and continues to be one of their best-sellers, along with two kinds of aquavit, Volstead vodka, and coffee liqueur.
