Nestled in the heart of Hood River, Oregon, Hood Crest Distillers is a family-owned distillery with a passion for the art of craft spirits. Our story begins with a deep connection to the land and the rich traditions of this fertile region.

A True Expression of Fruit

At Hood Crest, we take pride in producing spirits that capture the essence of the Pacific Northwest. We start from scratch, distilling the wine or fermented mash of locally sourced fruits, allowing their natural flavors to shine through in every bottle. This commitment to using whole fruits is at the core of our craft, resulting in exceptional, pure, and honest spirits.

The Art of Small Batch Distillation

We believe that great spirits are born from attention to detail and a dedication to small-batch production. Our distillation process takes place in a meticulously maintained copper pot still, where each batch is carefully crafted by our skilled distillers. This hands-on approach ensures that every bottle of Hood Crest spirits carries the quality and character that define us.

The Sounds of 

the Gorge

Beyond our love for distilling, we are also passionate musicians who find inspiration in the beauty of the Columbia Gorge. You'll often find us in our tasting room, sharing the soulful rhythms of blues music with our guests. It's just another way we bring our community together, celebrating life's pleasures – good company, fine spirits, and exceptional music.
