Stein Distillery pioneered the way for micro-distilleries in Eastern Oregon. Since opening in 2009, Stein Distillery’s line of handcrafted products has steadily increased, along with its consumer base. In 2011, Stein Distillery released its much anticipated 2-year American Oak-aged Straight Rye and Straight Bourbon Whiskeys. Stein Distillery is now producing the 5 year aged Bull Bourbon and the 5 year aged Ram Rye Whiskey, the older relatives to the 2 year aged Bull Bourbon and the 2 year aged Ram Rye Whiskey. These two whiskey’s were awarded DOUBLE GOLD in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. You will find these whiskey’s on the top shelf of many distilled spirit collections.
Stein Distillery, attention to detail is kept from grain growth to harvest through fermenting, distilling, filtering and bottling – every step is done by hand, producing a high quality product for the consumer.
True Grain to Bottle
Since we grow our own grain on our own farm, we can ensure that the quality of the grain meets our high standards.
Stein Distillery is a family run, handcrafted, turn-key operation that will capture “made-in-oregon” consumers as well as those who appreciate family, hard-work, and high-quality.

Stein Distillery is now producing the 5 year aged Bull Bourbon and the 5 year aged Ram Rye Whiskey, the older relatives to the 2 year aged Bull Bourbon and the 2 year aged Ram Rye Whiskey. These two whiskey’s were awarded DOUBLE GOLD in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. You will find these whiskey’s on the top shelf of many distilled spirit collections.
The 2 year aged Big Buck Blended Whiskey was awarded the Americas Best Blended Whiskey 7 years and under through the World Whiskey Awards. You can never go wrong with this blend any time of the year.
At one time, Rye Whiskey was the signature whiskey in the United States. It has a more assertive flavor than bourbon and its taste has brought back original drinks such as the Manhattan, Sazerac, and Ward 8 to cocktail menus. Stein’s Rye Whiskey is perfect served neat, as well as a fine addition to any one of these classic cocktails. Upon first taste, spice and caramel flavors weave over the palate with the sip finishing with a distinctive ping.
Stein Blended Whiskey stands-tall compared to other blends on the market because it is a true blend of 3 different straight grain whiskeys. Stein Blended Whiskey is savory on-the-rocks or as part of a Whiskey Spritzer with ginger ale and lime juice. It carries a nose of molasses, a hint of apricot and a cinnamon finish.
Bourbon remains an American tradition. Stein Distillery is proud to release the 1st Made-in-Oregon Bourbon, which rivals those of the American South. Stein’s Bourbon meets the nose with a whiff of honey and covers the palate with soft orange, ending with a toffee finish. Stein’s Bourbon is soothing straight or a perfect complement to an Old 2 Fashioned, Rob Roy, or the iconic Mint Julep.
RYE VODKA Stein Distillery is the first micro-distillery in Eastern Oregon. The Stein family, whose business bears its name, believes that product excellence stems from high-quality ingredients, hand-crafted processes, and dedicated heartfelt people. Therefore, all phases of spirit making, including Stein Distillery’s novel rye-based vodka, are accomplished by hand, using carefully controlled, family recipes.
This new offering is appropriately named “SteinShine.” SteinShine, like all other Stein products, starts from authentic ingredients: high-mountain glacier water and genuine homegrown grain. Stein’s barrel-aged Bourbon Whiskey is distilled from 75% Hermiston Corn and 25% Stein Barley, a perfect combination for creating ultra smooth Bourbon. SteinShine is based on this family Bourbon recipe, but it is not aged in oak barrels. Instead, after distillation and filtering, it goes directly into bottles.
Like the Stein Distillery’s notable Rye Vodka process, Stein Cordials (Raspberry, Huckleberry, Blackberry and Rhubarb) are handcrafted from start to finish. High-quality, pure alcohol, distilled from wheat grown on the family farm, is the base of these fruitful, full-bodied liqueurs. Fresh Northwest produce, berries and rhubarb are the other key cordial ingredients.
