About Us

Nature’s Recipe, our vision

In the crowded world of vodka, something was missing. There were no natural options. Artificial fruit extracts, flavors, and colors lined the shelves, and we knew something had to be done. So through our desire for naturally infused spirits, Wild Roots was born.

As natives to the Pacific Northwest, we knew there were few places in the world that produced fruit as flavorful and abundant as Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The rich soil, pure water, and exceptional climate allow the fruit to develop unparalleled taste and balance—which is crucial for creating an authentic tasting spirit.

Each bottle of Wild Roots starts with a 6 times distilled and 100 times filtered corn-based vodka, infused with over a pound of natural Northwest-grown fruit. To capture the essence of the beautiful Northwest, we chose fruits that weren’t only rich in flavor, but history as well.

To hear more of our story and try our unique spirits, please visit our Portland tasting room.
We’d love to pour you a glass.
