Wine tastings and microbrewery tours? If you’ve been there, drunk that, check out these five Portland upstart craft distilleries—like New Deal and House Spirits—which are turning out fine gins, vodkas, whiskeys, and other artisanal liquors infused with exotics like juniper and tarragon. On weekends, distilleries open their doors so that aspiring connoisseurs can see the stills and, of course, sample the spirits. Trust us, you’ll never look at a straight-up martini the same way again.
