This American Single Malt finished in Pinot Noir is so elegant you should suit up to sip it.

In 2004, former brewer and winemaker Christian Krogstad was a man with a vision. The vision in question? Bring to the people an American Single Malt, inspired by everything the American Northwest stands for. This was a time when there were no more than three dozen craft distilleries in the U.S. So, Krogstad became the founder & Master Distiller of Westward. Today, the crew has grown impressively and is helmed by Christian and Thomas Mooney who joined in 2011. A proud leader among more than 2,200 producers, the mission remains the same: give the people a bold, robust and delicious American Single Malt.

But at Westward Whiskey, they also like to spice things up. So, this time they decided to honor Oregon’s legendary Willamette Valley Wine country that stretches down the eponymous river valley for some 3.3 million acres. Creating an elegant and chic Whiskey, the original Westward American Single Malt is finished for up to two years in French Oak Wine casks of the region’s premier grape variety: Pinot Noir. Naturally, the casks are only sourced from a handful of award-winning producers as is the Westward way. Et voilà, their Pinot Noir Cask is a beautiful expression that reflects the Valley's signature grape but still retains that bold edge of Westward Whiskey. What more could you possibly ask for?

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Westward Whiskey founder Christian Krogstad graduated from the Seible Institute of Technology—America’s oldest brewing academy.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
