To broaden its appeal for its in-house distilling program, McMenamins has launched the new McMenamins Whiskey Club. This new club allows members exclusive access to quarterly McMenamins whiskey releases and Whiskeys in the Shed menus featuring rare and hard-to-find whiskeys. Plus, member pricing on Whiskey Club merchandise and a welcome kit.
Distilling at two of its Oregon locations – McMenamins Edgefield and McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse – McMenamins Distillery may be one of the best kept secrets of its vast beverage program. Hogshead Whiskey, distilled at McMenamins Edgefield, is a splendid whiskey that’ll rival any others produced and aged within the Beaver State. The lineup is vast and one we recommend experiencing as we recapped in this article below from 2016.
Membership into the McMenamins Whiskey Club includes a welcome kit with exclusive Whiskey Club merchandise and membership card with a retail value of $80. In addition to this, members will also receive access to purchase quarterly releases of exclusive, limited-edition, small-batch McMenamins spirits and bottle sizes; members-only pricing on specialty merchandise and spirits packages online and in gift shops; and exclusive access to Whiskeys in the Shed menus for member and one guest that are offered at select locations and featuring rare special releases, hard-to-find whiskeys and/or limited-edition McMenamins library spirits.
The cost of an annual membership into the new McMenamins Whiskey Club is $75, regularly $100, as this introductory price is good through December 31, 2020. Use promo code INTRO at checkout to take advantage of this savings. To learn more visit: https://www.shopmcmenamins.com/whiskey-club/.
