Crater Lake Spirits

Tap into your spirit of adventure.


Real spirits. Made with real ingredients.


Inspired by the purest water in the world, our vodkas are filtered at least ten times through charcoal and crushed lava rock for an exceptionally smooth finish. 



True to tradition and place, our gins gets their crisp, pine-filled flavor from handpicked juniper berries that are native to our high desert roots.



From our 100% Straight American Rye and ready to drink Rock & Rye to the limited edition Black Butte Malt Whiskey, our whiskeys share a sense of history and place. 



True to the craft. Dedicated to quality. Obsessed with adventure.

It was 1996, and all we wanted to do was live in the mountains and make great spirits. Over the years, that spark grew into a passion for making the best tasting spirits with the most natural ingredients available. Today, Crater Lake Spirits is one of Oregon’s oldest and largest distilleries serving up traditional spirits with spirited infusions.
