The American Malt Rises.
Westward Whiskey Distillery was founded by Christian Krogstad, who graduated from the Siebel Institute of Technology — America’s oldest brewing academy. He worked at craft breweries and a vineyard before founding what would become Westward in 2004 to bring his vision for an American Single Malt to life. The Westward team was expanded in 2011 when Thomas Mooney joined as co-founder and CEO, accelerating growth and bringing that vision to a wider audience. Today, this Oregon distillery produces signature Spirit brands including Krogstad Aquavit, Volstead Vodka, Casa Magdalena Rum, and Westward Whiskey.
Westward American Single Malt Whiskey starts its journey as an American Pale Ale that goes through slow fermentation and double distillation that turns the brewy caterpillar into a beautiful Whiskey butterfly. The new Spirit is then matured in lightly toasted new American Oak barrels. No shortcuts are taken, an approach that resulted in Gold at San Francisco World Spirits Competition. If you're lost, always go Westward.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Westward Original American Single Malt Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Is your next favorite Whiskey in this box?With Flaviar’s Whiskey Advent Calendar, we designed the ultimate Christmas gift for Whiskey lovers.
Each vial opens a new realm—a fresh opportunity to dive into another fine sipper and discover a gem. Connoisseurs across the world recognized the luxury of the flavors it offers, so the original Whiskey Advent Calendar was sold out.But the journey of Whiskey exploration doesn’t have to end. We worked hard to source additional Whiskey delights for you and produced a sequel—with new offerings but the same mission: to be the perfect stocking stuffer.
Ain’t nothing more American than a white picket fence, a slice of apple pie and Dolly Parton belting out the national anthem in her finest American flag leotard. Yessir.
But listen — it’s best to enjoy all of that star-spangled glory with a big ol’ glug of Whiskey. Hell, maybe two. And wouldn’t you know it, Whiskey is just as iconically American as ol’ Uncle Sam himself.
Whiskey is living its best life here in the U.S. Yeah, yeah… other countries, too. But when it comes to a bottle that’s different and bold, Whiskey is manifesting its righteous destiny all across the United States. And that’s something worth toasting to!
