About Us

Our Mission

AN EVER-EVOLVING CELEBERATION OF THE ART OF DISTILLATION


From the bartender who creates the perfect cocktail or combs the shelves for a rare bottle, to the chef offering a thoughtfully curated menu - we undertake to honor our collection of spirits through education, shared experience, and classic hospitality.

The Experience


Evolving from the classic social club and updated to reflect the vibrant times we live in, MWL is a place to gather and celebrate. Filled with members and guests, animated by the thrum of conversation, the clink of swirling ice, and the rumble of ladders and bar carts across the wood floors, the Library is as much a feeling as a place. Because, in the end, a great experience isn’t made up just of one element – no matter how notable or well-executed. A great experience is one that is shared with old friends and new, in a beautiful space, and overseen by inspired people.

The Collection


Our spirit collection is the heart of the Multnomah Whiskey Library. It is diverse with an emphasis on whiskey, but also comprises an extensive selection of cognac, tequila, mezcal, rum, amari and liqueurs. The collection ebbs and flows with time, changing tastes, and the interests and values of our people. It spans dozens of countries and represents the traditions and cultures of hundreds of regions. Taste a whisky that has been made on the same land and in the same stills for generations; or try something from an innovative young producer, rewriting the rules of distillation. Taste a new spirit every day for the next five years - with over 2,000 bottles on the wall, there will still be more to discover.

The People


On any given evening in the Library, you might find a member marking an occasion with friends and family, a visitor chatting to the fellow enthusiast at the next table, a neighbor enjoying a quiet moment by the fire, or colleagues toasting a great day. We welcome you to connect in their own way to the collection, the food, the space, and the people in the room; and we will ensure that you are exceedingly well-provisioned for a memorable visit. This is your evening, We’re glad that you’re here.
