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. This makes a killer whiskey sour.

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 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.
