Trail Distilling is both veteran and woman owned.

Trail Distilling will feature two products initially, First City Vodka and Trillium Gin. First City Vodka, a nod to Oregon City’s nickname, is handcrafted from wheat, triple filtered and passed through limestone for a soft palate.

Trillium Gin, a citrus and floral forward gin, contains 14 botanicals and took over a year to develop.

Trail Distilling’s 8,500-square-foot building, on Highway 213 in Oregon City, houses a dual-column reflux German still.

“Trail Distilling is thrilled to be open and part of Oregon City’s rich heritage and history,” said Sara Brennan, co-owner. “We are committed and passionate about producing the very best products. We invite you to come sample our spirits, see what we are all about, and relax in our tasting room.”

Trail Distillery plans to release its rum soon, followed by rye whiskey whose ingredients will be grown at a nearby family farm. The tasting room is located at 21553 Highway 213 in Oregon City and is open from noon to 7 p.m. Fridays, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment.
