You might call our story the “Central Oregon Dream,” and it starts as many stories here do. In 1992, a couple of friends came to Central Oregon to go snowboarding…and never left.
Ten years later, Tyler launched Cascade Alchemy and soon met Joe, a graduate of Distilling School, Oregon native and veteran keg and bottling supervisor for a Bend-based craft brewery; Joe’s brother James soon joined the distillery as a partner. It was their dream to take common elements and transform them into a taste of the High Desert.
Starting on a shoestring budget, the three partners have built Cascade Alchemy into a premier distillery through devotion and hard work. Their six signature Spirits combine a passion for distilling with their love for the beautiful Central Oregon environment—a perfect place to build a superb distillery. Cascade Alchemy transforms Bend’s pure mountain water and natural ingredients into pure liquid gold; the temperature swings of four seasons age it to perfection.
At Cascade Alchemy, we love spirits and the High Desert life, so we use simple, all-natural ingredients and local botanicals to produce some of the most distinctive spirits on the West Coast.
