Edgefield Spirits

Edgefield Distillery spirits are available only at McMenamins. They can be enjoyed by the glass and in mixed drinks at all of our pubs and hotels. Bottles can be purchased to-go only at select locations.

Devils Bit Whiskey

The highly coveted, limited-edition McMenamins Devils Bit Whiskey returns for its St. Patty’s Day debut on Monday, March 17 at select locations! With fewer than 1,000 bottles produced, this aged spirit is released on our favorite holiday – and when it’s gone, it’s gone!

They don't call it the well-traveled barrel for nothing! Handcrafted at the McMenamins Edgefield Distillery, this whiskey was double distilled from a mash of 100 percent two-row malted barley in 2006. From there it went into a new 53-gallon, charred American white oak barrel, where it aged for two years. Then it spent two years in a new 30-gallon American white oak barrel and three more years in a barrel previously used for McMenamins Port-style wines. Finally, it was finished for a year in a barrel previously used for making McMenamins wheat-based whiskey.

As a result, this year’s Devils Bit is far more complex than expected of an eight-year-old whiskey. The aroma is balanced between the malt, the sweet new oak and the notes of Port wood. It tastes like a piece of chocolate cake with a cherry glaze. Sláinte!

Devils Bit Lore

We history lovers enjoy dreaming up fanciful identities for McMenamins hand-crafted products. Devils Bit Whiskey was named after a mountain in North Tipperary, Ireland. Legend has it that a small gap in the mountain is where the devil took a bite and spit out the rock. That spit-out piece became the Rock of Cashel, which was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster in Ireland for several hundred years; most of the buildings that remain on the site date from the 1100s and 1200s. According to legend, Cashel is also the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century.

Monkey Puzzle

We selected a choice barrel of our finest malt whiskey and dry-hopped it with Teamaker hops, which contain no bitterness. The mix is sweetened with a touch of blackberry honey, harvested from hives found on the Edgefield estate. The result is a bit of a puzzle itself, but a truly great one. There are strong flavors of malt, vanilla and caramel mixed in with citrus hop characteristics and blackberry honey sweetness.

Herbal Liqueur No. 7

Distilled with a blend of Edgefield estate-grown garden herbs called the Black Rabbit Magic Potion #9, the spirit is bold with flavors of cinnamon, mint and caraway, balanced with the sweetness of organic birch syrup. And what does the number seven signify? According to the distillers (with a little help from their friends), it could mean that the nectar from the wimbled birch kindles this botanical trundle wheel at seven turns...seven families of laughing botanicals. Or perhaps it refers to the seven incantations: Seven rides on the broom: Seven calls in your cups. We’re not really sure. You’ll have to taste it to figure it out for yourself.

White Dog Whiskey

Our White Dog – A version of our Hogshead Whiskey before it sees a barrel -- is produced from four unique and complementary malted barleys. The aroma is of rich grain and cereal while the flavor has layers of dark chocolate, malt and roast. The body of the whiskey is full and semi-sweet, lingering on the palate with a surprising smooth finish.

We chose to release our White Dog because we feel it stands strong on its own and is a great companion to its barrel-aged version – Hogshead Whiskey. Even in its infancy as a whiskey, our White Dog is incredibly drinkable in a specialty cocktail or served neat.

Hogshead Whiskey
American Distilling Institute 2011 Single Malt Whiskey of the Year 

Hogshead is an original. Continuing the independent and innovative styles of Northwest brewers and vintners, this whiskey is distilled with only a passing nod to the great Scotch, Irish and Bourbon distillers, before striking off on its own. Boasting a palate-pleasing combination of malty spirit – reminiscent of the malted barley grain that began the process – and the smoky, vanilla sweet-wood that surrounds the spirit until bottling, Hogshead is a rich, amber-hued whiskey.

Longshot Brandy

The latest version of our popular Longshot Brandy is deeper and more complex than ever. We still use Syrah grapes harvested from Edgefield's own two-acre vineyard, double-distill the wine but then we barrel-age the spirit for one year in a used Syrah wine barrel and then another year in a used Syrah port barrel. The result is a unique brackish-hued brandy that has flavors of raisin, cherries, licorice and spice. The aroma is rich in vanilla, violet and floral notes. Longshot Brandy is perfect as an after-dinner sipping brandy or in a specialty cocktail.

Penney's Gin

This American dry gin is inspired by its London counterpart that caters to the martini connoisseur. It is handcrafted using the traditional English method in which pure grain spirit is distilled alone, with its vapors passing through carefully selected botanicals. Ingredients include whole juniper berry, sweet orange peel, lemon peel, freshly zested lime and cardamom. The aroma is rich in juniper and fresh citrus, making it ideal for spring- and summertime cocktails.

Coffee Liqueur

For all those diehard coffee drinkers looking for a little extra kick, this spirit is imbued with our houseroasted Ethiopian Sidamo coffee beans, imparting a dark, spicy flavor that marries well with the liqueur's rich, silky texture. These elegant, silkscreened bottles make excellent gifts - spot the cat in the painted label in various spots around the Edgefield estate.
