The inception of Swallowtail Spirits was in November of 2014, when the founder, Kevin Barret, began distilling vodka under another license. Not long after, he went his own way and began distilling in the official Swallowtail Spirits facility that is still where all of our products are produced today.
We quickly gained momentum and in the first eight months of operation as a licensed distillery, Swallowtail received eight international and national awards including Oregon Distillery of the Year from New York International Spirits Competition!
Over the years, we have grown our product line as well as our team. We currently produce a premium vodka, four infused vodkas, four styles of gin, and multiple different whiskeys. Our products are currently available in over 100 Liquor stores in Oregon and we are expanding into new territories as we grow. All of our products are blended using water from the famed McKenzie River, one of the cleanest rivers in the United States.
In 2019, we opened our Tasting Room in the historic area of downtown Springfield, right next to the Willamette River. We welcome you to come try a flight, enjoy your stay and take a bottle home!
