RANSOM SPIRITS

Ransom Wines & Spirits were started by Tad Seestedt. Born and raised on a farm in the NY Finger Lakes, he later tried his hand at New York City living and corporate America and quickly realized that he missed the farm. So he ventured on the 2,000 mile journey west finding his way on the Oregon trail to a farm in Sheridan where he laid the foundation for a winery and distillery.

Here in the green foothills of the Oregon Cascades,  a new tradition of winemaking and distilling is springing to life. At Ransom Spirits, we strive daily to embody our core values of historicity, craftsmanship, and terroir.  In working hard every day to make products that speak to their literal and figurative roots, we believe that we have created dynamic, terroir-driven wines and craft spirits with the weight and aromatic complexity of their predecessors.

 

 

ROGUE SPIRITS

Established in 2003 as one of the original craft distilleries in the country, Rogue Spirits crafts world-class spirits at their home in Newport on the Oregon Coast. It’s here where the barrels have the best seat in the house - the barrel aging room overlooks the Yaquina Bay, the Pacific Ocean and the commercial fishing fleet. Every day, a little bit of the salt air from the Yaquina Bay seeps inside the barrels. This micro-oxygenation process helps the spirits age gracefully, but also ensures a bit of the salt air from Rogue’s hometown is in every bottle of Rogue Spirits.

THINKING TREE SPIRITS

At Thinking Tree Spirits, we’re proud to say we handmade our stills.  We use a traditional pot still for our aged spirits that we created from a repurposed 1942 jam and dairy tank.  We embrace traditional techniques to mill, mash, ferment and distill high quality spirits. Our column still was built in Portland, Oregon by Bridgetown Brew Systems.  We implement a fully close loop heating and cooling system that allows us to recycle our waste heat into our process and into our floors, heating our feet in the cold winter months.  This very unique approach is not only economical but embodies our ethics as a sustainable business using as little water and gas as possible.
