A few weeks ago I spied a Groupon Offer a distillery tour in Portland and knowing we would be stopping there for a night on our way home from Cali I snapped it up. I had seen Burnside Bourbon up here in Seattle, but this visit provided the opportunity to check out everything else Eastside Distilling has to offer.

The drink was heavy on cucumber and too light on ginger rum, but the tour was super informative (though I should note it took place in all one room, so not much touring involved, mostly information given).
So, what did we buy to take home? the classic Burnside Bourbon and the awesome Ginger Rum which I can’t wait to start playing with:
