"The Westward Whiskey Club is an amazing experience. Not only is the whiskey outstanding, but they are always providing surprise perks along with the club benefits, whether it be local chocolate or artisan tea that compliments the club release. The events - whether in-person or virtual - are informative, welcoming and inclusive, and Lauren and the rest of the Westward team have made me feel like part of the extended family. If you like great American made single malt made by great people, you have to join the Westward Whiskey Club!"

"I am delighted to be a member of the Westward Explorers Club. I particularly appreciate the unique collaborations with local artisans and producers. The release parties are inventive and interactive and the wine dinner at Nostrana was exceptional. The tasting notes that accompany each release are informative and provide inspiration to expand my cocktail recipe collection. My latest creation is the Westward Malted Apple. I am already looking forward to the next release!"

Latest Special Release Whiskey

WESTWARD AMERICAN SINGLE MALT RUM CASK

With a mission to push the boundaries of traditional whiskey-making in mind, Rum Cask marries our founder’s roots in Guatemala, the mindset of the American Northwest, and our world class whiskey-making. Finished in Magdalena Rum casks, an all-natural, cane-to-glass Guatemalan rum created by the Westward Whiskey team from the finest possible ingredients and a low, slow fermentation process, this American Single Malt offers tropical and fruity notes to complement the signature bold, robust flavors of our whiskeys.

WESTWARD AMERICAN SINGLE MALT ELEMENTS: HIGH DESERT TO KLAMATH BASIN

While every whiskey we make is inspired by the American Northwest, this inaugural release in a new series called Elements is a special representation of our Oregon home. Westward American Single Malt Elements: High Desert to Klamath Basin is entirely sourced from Oregon, including two-row spring barley developed at Oregon State University. Prized for its flavor, the varietal is called Full Pint and is grown all around Klamath. This feature also includes a select blending from barley grown and malted in Madras, the central high desert, which was finished in Garryana (Oregon white oak) casks from Oregon Barrel Works, the Pacific Northwest’s only cooperage.

WESTWARD AMERICAN TWO MALTS x FORT GEORGE BREWERY CAVATICA STOUT

Thinking outside the barrel yet again, we proudly partnered with Ft. George Brewery from Astoria, Oregon to reimagine their famous Cavatica Stout as a Westward whiskey. This stout is renowned for being a deep, dark and delicious “strapping American Double Stout.”

Double pot distilled and aged in charred American white oak for 3.5 years, one sip of this brewery collaboration offering reveals layers of flavor – espresso, dark chocolate, honey and Stroopwafel – that showcase the exciting, delicious possibilities of experimentation.

WESTWARD AMERICAN TWO MALTS CHOCOLATE RYE

This latest exclusive Club release is all about perfect pairings: whiskey and chocolate; brewing and distilling; barley and rye. Over the years we have found several ways to reimagine whiskey through the lens of brewing collaboration, but the American Two Malts Chocolate Rye is something entirely new. Just 2.5% of chocolate roasted rye added to our grain bill is enough to strike a balance of flavor and complexity that complements the true character of Westward. Slowly savor to appreciate the balanced, earthy spice notes alongside those of juicy fruit.

WESTWARD AMERICAN SINGLE MALT X DOBBES FAMILY ESTATE PINOT NOIR ROSE

A whiskey ripe for celebration, this special selection pays homage to the collaborative culture of the Northwest, the incredible winemaking talent found nearby in the Willamette Valley, and our ongoing commitment to experimentation. Finished in seasoned Tequila casks that previously held Dobbes Family Estate’s Untethered Rosé of Pinot Noir Dessert Wine, this fruity and festive whiskey perfectly complements Westward’s bold, robust flavors and the careful and creative finesse of our whiskey making talent.

WESTWARD AMERICAN SINGLE MALT TEMPRANILLO CASK

In 2019, we released our first Tempranillo cask-finished whiskey -- the first ever American Single Malt to experiment with this finish -- to rave reviews. We knew we were onto something great, so we returned that very same Tempranillo puncheon to our warehouse to age a second batch for nearly three times as long. What can we say, the spirit of experimentation is in our blood.

This whiskey pays homage to the collaborative culture of the Northwest while highlighting the provenance of both the incredible wine and whiskey producers who have earned the region such renown. We are fortunate to call on our close-knit community of Oregon winemakers, who have forged a new path in the traditional wine world with their trailblazing grape choices, and there is no better example of this than Tempranillo.

WESTWARD AMERICAN TWO MALTS BRIDGEPORT BREWING CO.

Our latest offering in our popular Two Malts Series, WESTWARD AMERICAN TWO MALTS BRIDGEPORT BREWING CO. marks our first-ever collaboration in which our team of distillers turned an iconic brewery’s recipe into one of our whiskeys. Brewed alongside the BridgePort team using a clone of their Kingpin Red Ale, which boasts a relatively high rye content, the result is a complex and warm expression perfect for winter. 

A project driven by Lead Distiller Miles Munroe, who called BridgePort Brewing his home when he first came to Portland from brewing school, this collaboration highlights Westward’s unwavering dedication to the brewing process in our whiskey-making efforts.

WESTWARD AMERICAN TWO MALTS WHEATED

Our first ever Westward Whiskey Club exclusive, this expression pays homage to both the incredible ingredients found in the American Northwest and the raw beer making talent of our hometown. This whiskey was created from a mingle of our signature Two Row Malted Barley and Soft Winter White wheat that was grown exclusively in the Pacific Northwest for American Pale & Hefeweizen beers. Often used in American whiskey to soften and add layers of light fruit complexity, the wheat perfectly balances Westward’s signature malted barley notes; the end result is a fine tribute to our Northwest provenance.

A club for whiskey enthusiasts, offering unparalleled member exclusive events and experiences as well as rare expressions of our award-winning Single Malt Whiskeys.
