Our Burnside family of Oregon Whiskeys 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.
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 whiskey and it was worth the wait - Glorious Oregon Oak!
