House Spirits Distillery

House Spirits was founded in 2004 by former brewer and winemaker Christian Krogstad, whose love for cocktails led him to start a distillery. He wanted to celebrate cocktail culture while using “ethically sourced” ingredients. In order to truly pay homage to cocktails, he collaborated with famed Portland, Oregon mixologist Ryan Magarian to create his flagship spirit Aviation Gin, and his portfolio has expanded from there.
