An Anchor in Portland’s
Distillery Row

Westward Whiskey Distillery

House Spirits Distillery (now Westward Whiskey) is an industry leader in America’s craft distilling movement. This facility, located in the industrial Central Eastside, is an anchor of Portland’s famous Distillery Row. The converted shed building  allowed House Spirits to increase their craft spirits production, making it the largest distilling operation in Oregon. Ferar Studio was responsible for the design of all production spaces and overall coordination of the project (Mackenzie was responsible for the building shell and Osmose Design for the tasting room interiors.)
