Professionals Whisky Release Party



A whisky for the non-whisky snob, Professionals Spiced Whisky is sweet and smooth, an easy drink laced with flowery helpings of vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.

The base of the spiced whisky is distilled in Canada (hence the spelling whisky, which denotes origin in Canada, Japan, Scotland, England, and Wales) and is bottled and flavored in Portland. By day, the owners are young Bend professionals (hence the name). Jared Dairy, Neil McDaniel and Michael Dahl will release their first style of alcohol this Friday.

"We're based out of Bend and want to keep our local roots," said Dairy explaining that Professionals is already on shelves at the north, west and eastside liquor stores in Bend.

The principal flavor in the whisky is vanilla, and although there is no added sugar, Professionals is more in the vein of a Fireball-style sweet alcohol than a traditionally smoky or oaky whisky. Closer to a spiced rum, Professionals is not necessarily meant to be a sipping drink. The owners recommend mixing with coke, (a Pro and Co, if you will) or with ginger ale.
