How can you not love a local distillery that produces an item named "HOT MONKEY VODKA"??
I contacted to good folks at New Deal Distillery and requested a tour and "after the tour tasting" for July 17th and they said YES YES YES!!.....This is going to be SO much fun~!! New Deal Distillery has been creating high quality, hand crafter spirits inspired by the Do-It-Yourself attitude of Portland, Oregon since 2004.
New Deal offers a full line-up of artisan vodkas and (new) liqueurs. Every bottle is distilled with care in Southeast Portland. All New Deals artisan vodkas are made from Bull Run water, in small batches, with natural and organic ingredients. They offer a SUH-WHEEET variety of vodkas ranging from their classic Portland 88 (clean and crisp) to their slightly herbal New Deal vodka to their spicy and smoky HOT MONKEY pepper-flavored vodka.....a Gold Medal Winner at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.....they are also now partnering with LOFT Organic Liqueurs in the Bay Area and producing organic liqueuers with the freshest, most flavorful, as-local-as-possible organic fruits and botanicals~! They also have a entire page dedicated to using thier spirits.....complete with recipes...in the kitchen....I for one can't WAIT to try out their Hot Monkey rubbed beef roast~!
Here's the plan for our fabulous outing:
1. Meet at the distillery at 3:30 SHARP for our tour. Take our guided tour with our host....and then tasting after~! Spirits are available for purchase (if you so desire) at the distillery.
2. After the tour and tasting (approx 5:00) we will head over to the newly reopened Produce Row Cafe for an early dinner. PRC is a Portland classic and has just undergone a major renovation so it will be a lot of fun to check out.....Food is basic pub fare.....perfect for our post-distillery imbibing.....The PR Cafe is cozy and great for groups and the prices are very reasonable too......
3. Fee is 3.75 to secure your slot. Fee is refundable only up to 2 weeks before the event. Please be sure you can make it before snagging your spot~~!
After dinner all you party dogs can continue on with your Saturday night....I'll be heading home to start my beef roast for Sunday dinner :-)~~~!
Hope to see you there~!!
