Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye

Nose: Herbaceous with cassia and coriander, toffee, orange peel, peach and allspice.   

Flavor: Opens with pronounced dried spices and bold peach notes. Progresses mid-palate to a unique balance of malt and cassia and toffee then finishes with warm hints of mint and toasted oak.  One can describe this rye as delicate versus overtly spicy. Try it in a Boulevardier, Sazerac or Manhattan to fully experience it’s depth.

Our Burnside family is commemorative of Burnside Street, our hometown artery that divides Portland’s North and South and stretches end-to-end. Burnside Street has been and continues to be a thriving hub of activity that's alive with creative expression, famous venues, iconic record stores and daily street performances that makes it the epicenter 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. “We are not emulating bourbon of the past, we are boldly celebrating bourbon of the present and future. “ -Mel Heim, Master Distiller/Blender

Burnside’s 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 has a casual confidence about it that feels as appropriate today as it would have 100 years ago and fits comfortably with the “Keep Portland Weird” aesthetic.

Burnside Oregon Oaked Rye is a meticulous blend of straight rye and straight whiskey ranging in age, mash bill and terroir for a one-of-a-kind rye with a kiss of Garryana.  It's our first venture into rye and it was worth the wait - Glorious Oregon Oak!
