Made right. Made right here.

New Deal Distillery makes high quality, craft-distilled spirits, inspired by the DIY spirit of Portland, Oregon. All of our artisan spirits are made locally in small batches with Bull Run water and natural and organic ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible.

Bottled for You

New Deal Bottle Shop

We love experimenting with quality ingredients and collaborating with local craft producers, which is why you’ll find a unique selection of beer, wine, cider, and home cocktailing supplies in our Bottle Shop. Explore our selection of hyper-local and high-quality mixers, bitters, cocktail syrups, and garnishes as well as our line of small-batch craft spirits. We’re open daily from 12-6pm and would love to have you visit our shop for easy weeknight wine and beer to go, gifts and special occasion bottles, home bar and cocktail making supplies, exploratory spirit tasting and flights, weekend mini cocktails, chats, and high fives.



20 Years Distilled:
Farm-to-Glass Fermentation

Have you ever wondered how we turn a barrel of molasses into Rum? Pears into Brandy? Or grains into Whiskey and Vodka? We’d love to share the magic of fermentation with you and what we’ve learned over the years about sourcing, processing, and transforming agricultural products into spirits. Please join us July 25th, from 4-7 PM, for a fermentation-focused happy hour gathering, including spirit samples, mini cocktails, and a fun peek behind the scenes with New Deal Owner and Head Distiller Tom Burkleaux. We’ll be serving a special tropical menu featuring our craft spirits and locally-made Daddy’s Cocktails Syrups. Founder Aaron Ranf will join us with his fantastic line of syrups that make creating tropical concoctions at home a breeze. Event is free & 21+. RSVP required.

Proudly Independent

Pioneers in craft distilling in Portland, Oregon since 2004

When New Deal began, we were one of the smallest licensed distilleries in America. There were only a handful of American craft distilleries even in existence and we had to figure out a lot without a roadmap. We have grown over the years in many ways, but are proud to have always remained independently owned. This gives us the freedom to continually explore experimental methods, ingredients, and spirit styles.

Driftwood Ready-to-Pour Cocktails

After a long day at work, not everyone has the time, patience, or know-how to make a balanced cocktail – but thankfully, we do. Our Driftwood Libations Ready-to-Drink Cocktails – take the worry out of cocktail mixing. Hosting some friends for a pre-function cocktail? Our Driftwood Libations makes it simple. Enjoy sipping on a cocktail while preparing dinner? We got your back. Unwinding on your own? Let us fix you a drink!

New Deal Craft Cocktail Recipes

Craft cocktails are in the house!

Making more cocktails at home these days? If you’re looking for new drink ideas, we’re here to help! We have tons of recipes on our website that can be easily sorted by season, spirit, or style. You’ll find classics, holiday cocktails, easy-to-make options, and more. We’ve even created a line of cocktail syrups to help you keep it creative at home. Like our founder, Tom Burkleaux always says, “a well-stocked bar is a terrible thing to waste.”
