Introducing: Our First Whiskey!

Down Arrow

Since the very beginning, we have defined ourselves as a fermentation project, as our name suggests. Venturing beyond beer has always been in our DNA. And with this first whiskey offering, we are fulfilling a dream that’s been there from the start. 

This straight bourbon whiskey is the latest chapter in our quest of fermented perfection. In partnership with Pursuit Distilling Co., we’ve crafted a unique whiskey inspired by the best bourbons, ryes, and single malts from around the world. 

It begins with a meticulously crafted wash – customized by our Master Brewer, Larry Sidor to capture all of the very best flavors, textures, and aromas possible for a truly unique whiskey. Pursuit Distilling Co. took the wash and distilled it with innovative precision before aging it over two years in charred new American oak barrels.

“It has been a dream collaboration to work with Larry and the Crux team in creating and developing a unique mash bill that truly will pave the way for the future of spirit innovation. It’s collaborations like this that keep things exciting and fresh for us at Pursuit.” – Sam Agnew and Ty Teeple, Pursuit Distilling Co. Co-Founders.

This 100 proof, straight bourbon whiskey rebels against convention and delivers undeniable depth and complexity. The result is layered and distinct, featuring black cherry and vanilla aromas with chocolate and orange spice on the palette. In other words, this is the bourbon we want to drink. 

“This collaboration has been nothing short of inspirational. Sam and Ty have embraced the concept from the start to develop a whiskey that defies the norm with layers and layers of intrigue.” – Larry Sidor.

Like beer, whiskey is full of possibilities. So, join us in raising a glass and enjoying this inaugural moment. 


Don’t worry, another batch is already in the works. 

Bottles of this “Very Small Batch” whiskey will be available at Pursuit Distilling Co.’s tasting room in Enumclaw, Washington and select liquor stores in Bend, Oregon. We will be serving it neat and on the rocks at our tasting room starting Friday, February 18th.
