This distillery is dedicated to all U.S war veterans and active service members that have served our country. More specifically and on a very personal level, I have dedicated the distillery to the casualties of four combat soldiers who I served with in the Oregon National Guard 2 Battalion, 162 Infantry Bridgade. Lt. Erik McCrae, Sgt. Justin Linden, Sgt. Justin Eyerly and Sgt. David Roustum. These four men lost their lives in 2004 while serving in Baghdad, Iraq. I will forever honor their courage and sacrifice.

Aria was created by a seventeen-year professional bartender, for bartenders, with cocktails in mind. Aria is a versatile gin which works well in any classic gin cocktail, especially a Martini, or it can be the basis for experimentation and creativity. It is also approachable enough to be enjoyed neat or straight over ice
Aria is full bodied and boldly aromatic. Juniper is up front—obvious on the first nosing and initially on the palate. Underneath the juniper, layers of bright citrus, earthy undertones, floral highlights and subtle spicy notes reveal themselves, both on the nose and palate, though none are overpowering. All of the layers of flavor are balanced. The pristine Bull Run water use to cut Aria after distillation provides a rich, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is long and soft.
The recipe for Aria was developed over the course of four years and hundreds of test distillations. Aria is handmade and batch distilled with ten classic gin botanicals that were carefully chosen to create a flavor profile that has depth and complexity, but above all a perfect sense of balance.
In the heart of the Willamette Valley, amidst wineries, craft breweries, and orchards our small craft Divine Distillers was born. Here we make each bottle of our spirits with a goal to preserve and highlight the flavor of our local fruit. We seek to adapt tradition with innovation to create spirits that capture the essence of the Willamette Valley. All ingredients except our Agave our sourced in Oregon, most from within 25 miles of our distillery.
Our distillery was conceived from our son’s namesake Dante Alighieri author of the Divine Comedy. Our spirits will take you on a journey from inferno to paradise. Our fruit eau-de-vie and silver rum are in our “Inferno” class. The spirits are strong and hot. As we age our fruit spirits and rum they mellow and smooth while maintaining their flavor. These are our “Paradise” class of spirits. For our finest quality aged products, they will be our “Ange”, angel, class. Our unique spiced and herbal liqueurs are our “Purgatorio” class.
Join us on this epic adventure to capture the flavor and explore the Divine Comedy through distilled spirits.
The idea of a distillery started when three paddling friends were on a roadtrip to Victoria BC to compete in a dragonboat festival. Bryan could always make a mean limoncello, and we thought it would be fun to be able to mass-produce and make some money with it rather than giving it away at parties and using it as a post-festival celebratory libation. Bryan started to do tons of research, and built a small still to experiment with. Just before filing for our business license, life’s plan dwindled the original three down to two – husband/wife team Bri and Bryan Toedtli. Drop Shop Distillery LLC was formed on March 11, 2016.
Bryan’s high school friend Kevin Barrett had started Swallowtail Spirits in Springfield, Oregon, and we soon teamed up with him to contract-bottle our spirits to get them on the shelf and start generating some revenue to purchase our equipment. We filed for our own DSP license through the federal and state governments, and we received our permits on August 4, 2017.
What a wild ride it’s been, thanks Kevin for helping us to get started!

Stein Distillery pioneered the way for micro-distilleries in Eastern Oregon. Since opening up in 2009, Stein Distillery’s line of handcrafted products has steadily increased, along with its consumer base. In 2011, Stein Distillery released its much anticipated 2-year American Oak-aged Straight Rye and Straight Bourbon Whiskeys. Now offering 5yr Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 5yr Straight Rye Whiskey, and a 5yr Straight Wheat Whiskey.
We are heartily of the opinion that a good cocktail should never be out of reach. What began as two chums making batch cocktails in a garage has evolved into what is known today as Straightaway. We make both classic and obscure spirit-forward cocktails with ingredients of the best grade. And we bottle them for your effortless enjoyment. So go on, raise a glass at home or (may we strongly suggest) in the company of friends: here’s mud in your eye.
For more than seven generations, the Ly family has been distilling alcohol to honor ancestors, celebrate, heal and enjoy.
Today, the Ly family is continuing its long-standing legacy by distilling high-quality, gluten-free rice spirits in Portland, Oregon. Vinn Distillery is a family owned and operated distillery based in Portland, Oregon. It’s a minority and women-owned business that creates baijiu, rice vodka, rice whiskey, blackberry liquor and a wide range of seasonal and special-release products in its Wilsonville, Oregon distillery.
Vinn’s signature product is Vinn Baijiu. Unknown to many North American consumers, baijiu is actually the world’s most commonly consumed liquor by volume.
“The flavor profile is really different,” says Michelle Ly, co-owner of Vinn Distillery. “It’s a marriage between sake, tequila, white whiskey, a little bit of vodka, a little bit of gin and a little bit of rum.”
Vinn Distillery is the only licensed baijiu maker in North America.
Visit Vinn Distillery’s tasting room on Portland’s Distillery Row to try one of its signature rice liquors, or taste a hand-crafted cocktail, made with locally produced ingredients from other small businesses in the Portland area.
