What is the Maker Movement, you ask? It is the legions of artisans and craftspeople and entrepreneurs and doers who are re-inventing and reshaping artisanal manufacturing one hand-made product at a time. It is the people who are starting businesses, developing products, honing their skills and offering support and sharing tools and knowledge with each other. The Maker Movement is gaining momentum across the globe, and everyone is looking to Portland to uncover the who, what, why and how of this critical resurgence of artisanal manufacturing. Through the creation of beautiful and thoughtfully produced goods – from food and fashion to housewares and craft brewing – Portland is showcasing the city’s deeply embedded values and playing a lead role in shaping the fast-growing manufacturing renaissance.

Portland’s original craft vodka, distilled in copper stills and bottled at a higher proof, delivers a clean, classic taste that maintains a distinct character. It stands up to bold mixers, yet is smooth enough for sipping. An exceptional vodka at a reasonable price. “The nose has a slight limestone-like note to it with a slight powdered sugar undertone.
