Portland 88 Vodka


A traditional vodka, distilled in copper stills and bottled at 88 proof, Portland 88 Vodka delivers a clean, classic taste that maintains a distinct character. Stands up against bold mixers, yet smooth enough to sip straight – an exceptional vodka at a reasonable price.

The name hearkens back to the 80’s, when we, ourselves, were a little younger, a little wilder, and a little more mustached. Dedicated to Portland’s old DIY spirit and its openness to new ideas, Portland 88 Vodka is a nod to the decade we discovered and fell in love with our city.

88 Proof | 44% Alcohol by volume | 750 ML and NEW 1.7L Big Bottle

Praise from DrinkSpirits.com

“The nose has a slight limestone-like note to it with a slight powdered sugar undertone. Portland 88 isn’t vapory and has no citrus in the nose. The entry is very soft, round, and sweet with the slightest core of white pepper spice. It’s wonderfully balanced right from the start with a delightful mouthfeel. The core spice from the entry opens and envelops the sweet notes without obliterating them. It’s almost like the sweet and the spice trade places for a mid palate transformation that’s spectacular. The finish is long and balanced with nice spice and sweet in even amounts. Portland 88 ultimately cleans up, leaving your mouth slightly dry with the slightest cooling. New Deal’s Portland 88 Vodka is proof that craft and commercialism can unite in a vodka that shows care and craftsmanship but is also extremely affordable and competitive to other major vodkas on the market.”
