Best of Portland brought the heat on.
I mixed no less than 1000 cocktails that hot Wednesday evening. My fingers were left wrinkled from the citrus that permeated my skin, and the seepage under my nails left me having flash backs of busy bartending nights. The crowd, none-the-less, was appreciative of all the samplings and had a keen appreciation for the Organic Nation gin and Brain Tonic cocktail (I am still hoping for a clever name to pop up, suggestions welcome).
The best of Portland event put on by Willamette Week beamed with success. Local Portlanders cruised in after work to dip into the goodies; Socializing to the live music and good food & spirits. Then there was the 'reporter dunk tank', just in case you have a pent up issue or grudge with a local media person. On site vendors included, the Grilled Cheese Cart, which I will add makes a killer grilled cheese using mascarpone cheese. There were Absinthe slushy’s! handmade donuts and much more. I will confess, I never had a chance to check out the entire event, which was a really good problem to have, being that our booth was highly popular! Everyone couldn’t get enough of the Organic Nation vodka and Lemongrass Dry Soda or the now famed O-N gin and Brain TonIQ’s cocktails.
Best of Portland was fantastic and we hope to see many of you at any and all of our upcoming events in the Portland area. Support the movement to keep it local; Drink local and drink organic.

Recently, I stumbled upon what turned out to be an enjoyable conversation with TV's Top Chef star, CJ Jacobson, at a local event. A character beyond words, he was even more entertaining to be with. CJ and one of the Bravo network guru's, Fred Haug, were delighted with the introduction to our Gin. The camera rolled and the three of us did our best to enjoy the moment in as much seriousness as we could! CJ is back in LA, hopefully inspired by his experience with our small batch Gin. While Fred is waiting for our debut in NY . . . coming soon!

Post-race fuel is always a sought after feature of a hard weekend of racing. Willow Koerber of Subaru/Gary Fisher took on a new love this past weekend for our Vodka. In her own words she shares her experience in Ashland at the annual Super D race.
'Well, that was really really really fun. I don’t remember the last time I was smiling so much during a race... then we all dropped into the Organic Nation Vodka mixed with Brain Toniq (my new kick of the week)...' For the rest of the blog, go here.
