Fodor's Expert Review Bendistillery
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Oregon may be synonymous with craft-brewed ales and Pinot Noir, but Bendistillery expands the alcoholic range by handcrafting small batches of spirits flavored with local herbs. Bend sits in the middle of one of the world's great juniper forests, making the juniper-infused Cascade Mountain gin a particular treat. This slick little tasting room stirs up bracing martinis and highballs incorporating Bendistillery's products, resulting in a perfect bar-crawl kickoff or classy, if sometimes noisy, nightcap.
