Portland’s distillery scene continues to grow: Wild Roots has opened a new tasting room on distillery row, serving frozen boozy slushies, mini-cocktails, and flights of its famous Oregon fruit vodkas.
Its winter opening slipped under the radar, opening in mid-February blocks from its original location. The new tasting room is closer to a sleek bar, with a full menu of $5 mini-cocktails as well as the traditional spirit flights. The tasting room also offers two spiked slushies: A frozen apple cider slushy with a choice of apple cinnamon or cranberry vodka, and a cranberry-lime freeze with pear vodka.
Wild Roots is likely best known for its marionberry vodka, infused with Oregon’s most famous berry — it’s often a component of Oregon’s twists on lemon drops. The tasting room pours 10 vodkas as well as a gin, infused with fruits like huckleberry, pear, and cherry. The tasting room offers flights of five vodkas for $10.
The bar can accommodate 47 visitors between its six-seat bar and lounge space, surrounded by bright white walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. The tasting room is open daily from noon to 6 p.m at 77 NE Grand, Suite F; explore the tasting room menu here.:
