"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!"

Our Upcoming Special Release Whiskey

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.

Previous Special Release Whiskey

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 SINGLE MALT SINGLE BARREL NO. 61

Discover a true representation of our ethos that drives us to reimagine single malt. This Westward American Single Malt Single Barrel is a limited release and a rare glimpse into the experimentation that led us to develop our signature Westward flavor profile. 

While most of our original American Single Malt is aged in 2 char barrels, Barrel 61 is a 3 char and has produced richer and more distinct flavors a bit different than most often found in Westward’s whiskies. Lead Distiller Miles Munroe selected this barrel to be part of this special release, as it is one of the oldest in the Single Barrel program from our earlier days when the Washington location was new. 

To taste this Single Barrel and appreciate its unique profile is to experience the Westward Whiskey story.

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 SINGLE MALT HUNGARIAN HEADS

A testament to the creative minds behind Westward, who have reimagined Single Malt since 2004 and continue to push the boundaries of whiskey forward, this offering is a whiskey aged with toasted Hungarian oak, a coveted wood that produces lower tannins and rich aromatics. Created from a Bordeaux-style barrel sourced from McGinnis Wood Products, the largest stockist of air-dried US white oak wine and whiskey barrels in the world, this hybrid barrel contains heads made from Quercus petraea, one of two coveted types of Hungarian Oak. Though it is prized by winemakers and occasionally used aging Cognac, it is not a common wood in malt-making circles.

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.
