Burnside West End Blend
Nose: Sweet biscuit with a bit of nuttiness. Young but balanced with support of dessert Oregon Oak tannins.
Flavor: Full bodied and low octane; grass and corn and coconut all mingle nicely with the gentle touch of toasted oak.
Our re-branding unbundles Burnside Bourbon from the images of Major General Ambrose Burnside and realigns it with Burnside Street, the Portland street artery that divides Portland’s North and South. Burnside Street, now a thriving hub of activity that's alive with creative expression, showcases countless venues, iconic record stores and daily street performances that makes it the epicenter for one of Portland’s most celebrated music scenes. With so much history, color, and intrigue, Burnside Street had to be the foundation for the brand on its own.
Burnside’s new design, with its bold typography and unexpected color relationships, draws its inspiration from old music posters and garage-band flyers littering any number of telephone poles along the busy street. Burnside’s wordmark has a casual confidence about it that feels as appropriate today as it would have 100 years ago and fits comfortably in the “Keep Portland Weird” aesthetic.
Burnside West End Blend is a meticulous blend of American whiskies ranging in age and mash bills with a kiss of Oregon Oak to make a vibrant, earthy sipper at an accessible proof and price.
