Eastside announces first deliveries of Burnside Goose Hollow Reserve

Published 10 November 2017

Craft spirits producer Eastside Distilling has announced initial deliveries of its new Burnside Goose Hollow Reserve.

Burnside Goose Hollow Reserve is the creation of Eastside’s Master Distiller Mel Heim. The Goose Hollow Reserve is a limited bottling expression of Straight Bourbon Whiskies that are meticulously blended and aged in Garryana Casks.

Eastside aptly dubbed this bourbon “Goose Hollow” after the storied Portland neighborhood that was officially established with this moniker in 1879—the same time the term bourbon became consistently used in the U.S. and Kentucky.

Goose Hollow is nestled in the lower elevations of Portland’s West Hills near Tanner Creek, a forested lowland gulch in the SW side of the city. The Goose Hollow blend itself is earthy, woody and dense and localized with the use of glorious Oregon oak.

Mel Heim elaborated, “On the nose you should smell a robust oak, pine mixed with smoky coals. Once aerated, notes of fruitcake, apricot and caramel begin to be released. You will taste the unflinchingly 92 proof which undergoes a metamorphosis on the palate from peppery wood and bitter chocolate to tobacco, plums and vanilla. We think if Goose Hollow had an official flavor that this would be it.”

The bourbon is showcased in the vibrant new look of the Burnside Bourbon family of individually screen-printed bottles, designed in Portland by spirits branding firm, Sandstrom Partners, and produced locally.
