I had the opportunity to visit with a catering company owner, and we started chatting about the popular requests for locally-sourced food items on wedding menus.

So why not booze?  I’ve noticed many wedding bars stocked with Grey Goose, Absolut, Maker’s Mark, and the like… all very well and good, but with all the amazing distilleries we have right here in the Portland area, why miss this opportunity?

Here’s a list of local distilleries just to get you started, I’m sure there are more.  If you think of one that I haven’t mentioned, please add it to the comments! We urge you to drink responsibly and observe all alcohol safety laws at your event.
