Portland Oregon's Premier Family-Owned Distiller
Rolling River Spirits is a family-owned and operated craft distillery located in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 2011, and with distilling operations beginning in March 2014, the company offers an expanding choice of artisan spirits made from the freshest ingredients. The name is inspired by the many majestic rivers in the Northwest and underscores the importance of pure water in the distillation process.
Rolling River handcrafts their spirits with only the finest ingredients, using organic and non-GMO products when possible. Their Master Distiller, Tim Rickard, personally creates each blend using his own custom-built stills and Portland’s renowned pure water from the Bull Run Watershed.

Crafted with our award-winning vodka distilled with locally roasted coffee beans from Coava Coffee Roasters of Portland, who provide a custom single-source bean-roasted coffee bringing a bold, rich and chocolaty flavor. The initial vodka is distilled (10X) with a hint of non-GMO organic pure cane sugar, and is then combined with the custom brewed coffee, and again distilled one final time resulting in a smooth, sweet tasting Coffee Spirit. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or blended into a limitless variety of coffee and mocha style drinks. 80 proof. Buy Now.
Honoring a branch of their family's Norwegian heritage, Rolling River Spirits produces some of the largest varieties of hand-crafted Aquavit. From the Latin "aqua" (water) and "vita" (life), these ‘Water of Life’ spirits are made in the traditional way, yet with the added twist of Rolling River's own artisan flavor profiles and preferences. The base Aquavit spirit is from their signature non-GMO organic winter wheat. This is a traditional spirit that is caraway-forward and crafted from an array of botanical spices. With un-aged and oak-aged variations, Rolling River's creative Aquavit can be sipped neat, paired with different courses of a meal, or featured in unique and compelling cocktails. Buy Now.
MISTY OCEAN AQUAVIT
