Event: House Spirits Open House on 12/9 (Portland, Ore.)

House Spirits, Portland’s own micro-distillers of Aviation Gin and Medoyeff Vodka, will open their doors to the public for a one-day holiday Booze Bazaar this Saturday, December 9.

Owners and distillers Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad will be on-hand to tour, taste and talk with visitors, while other local distillers and cocktail aficionados will shake and stir new concoctions for trial. Special House Spirits holiday gift packages will be available for purchase as well as an exclusive offering of the yet-to-be-released Krogstad Aquavit. The Bazaar will also feature Imbibe Magazine, Ransom Grappas and traditional cocktail-making accessories for the drink enthusiasts on your holiday gift list.

Alma Chocolate will join the festivities by sharing tastes of their new spirit-infused line of truffles and Viande Meats will offer fare that pairs well with spirits for your holiday celebrations.

So come on by and enjoy the opportunity to mingle with your local distillers, taste top-notch local products and get some holiday shopping done while you're at it!
