Quick Overview

Portland's own Eastside Distilling released two new products in the summer of 2015: Barrel Hitch American Whiskey and this Barrel Hitch ‘Oregon Oak’ American Whiskey. Both are sourced whiskeys from select barrels, with the latter finishing in barrels made from Oregon oak, a drought-tolerant tree species native to the Pacific Northwest. The secondary aging is anywhere between a month to four months, before the whiskey is bottled at 44% ABV.

Eastside Distilling, out of Portland, Oregon, is known in whiskey circles mostly for its sourced Burnside Bourbon. The distillery is now taking its sourcing knowledge into the larger whiskey frontier, unveiling two new offerings to further expand its brown spirits portfolio. Barrel Hitch American Whiskey and Barrel Hitch ‘Oregon Oak’ American Whiskey, according to Eastside, are part of a new brand, Barrel Hitch, that was created by the distillery’s master distiller Melissa Heim and its chief branding officer Carrie Earles. The idea in forming this new label, as opposed to sticking with Burnside, was to “make a premium American whiskey enjoyable by all” that’s said to be “extra smooth and approachable as well as reasonably priced.” The non-age statement Barrel Hitch American Whiskey, of which official tasting notes are below, was bottled at 80 proof, while the ‘Oregon Oak’ variant was bottled at 88. The latter saw as well an additional four months of aging time in special barrels made from Oregon oak wood, reportedly imparting “a distinctive savory spice flavor to aged spirits that cannot be produced from barrels made from other oak varietals.”
