Westward American Pinot Noir Cask Single Malt


Introducing Westward.

Master Distiller Christian Krogstad, a former brewer and winemaker, had a vision to make a distinctive American Single Malt whiskey inspired by the American Northwest. His aim, to capture its climate, culture, and the abundant natural resources it offered. At that time there were only three dozen craft distilleries in operation in the US.

The Oregon climate has hot summers and cold, wet winters which are perfect for the production of world-class whiskey and this offering is a tribute to its legendary Willamette Valley wine country. This elegant whiskey is influenced by the region’s premier grape varietal: Pinot Noir.

This cask-finished whiskey reflects the vibrance of the Valley’s signature grape while allowing the bold, robust notes of our whiskey to shine through. Westward’s Pinot Noir Cask begins with their original Westward American Single Malt, which is then finished for up to two years in French Oak wine casks from a handful of award-winning producers in the region.
