The Bendistillery has been making spirits in the Bend area since 1996 when they released Crater Lake Vodka and Gin. Now they have an expanded product line from locally sourced ingredients including infused vodkas, Reserve products, ground to bottle Estate products, Special Projects, and Rye Whiskey under their Crater Lake Spirits by Bendistillery label. The word about their high-quality hooch has gotten out; they have expanded out of Oregon to be distributed in twenty-six states. In 2010 they moved their distillery from Bend to a 24-acre farm property in Tumalo with amazing views of the Cascade Mountains, where they have a tasting room that has free tastings and tours daily, along with bottle sales and a gift shop. The Downtown Bend Tasting Room allows you to enjoy America’s most award winning small batch distillery right in the middle of it all. The downtown Tasting Room is open daily and has tasters, mini cocktails, retail products, and bottle sales. No food is served.
