Whisky Gift Sets

What started has a holiday pop-up shop quickly grew into its own brick-and-mortar storefront carrying local Portland goods, handmade products, vintage items, and more. And if the name didn’t tip you off, this is the perfect spot to look for a gift for a guy-foodie. One of our favorite items are the unique cutting boards from The Cutting Board Project. Made in Portland, they are handmade using recycled scrap wood and are each one-of-a-kind. They are easy to care for and the tag on each board tells you about its previous life, such as an old kitchen buffet or dining table. While you’re in the store, check out their drink and bar displays for the beer or whisky connoisseur you know. For the drink-lover on your list, they carry many accessories like whiskey rocks, growlers, flasks and bottles of PDX bitters.
