FACTS

 

Ransom

Wines & Spirits Co.

 

Philosophy

Ransom Spirits was started by Tad Seestedt in 1997 with a small life savings and a handful of credit cards. The name was chosen to represent the debt incurred to start the business - Tad was paying his own ransom to realize his dream. Initially, the distillery made small amounts of grappa, eau de vie and brandy. Ransom began the production of a number of small-batch fine wines in 1999. In 2007, Ransom took up the craft of grain-based spirits, adding gin, whiskey, vodka to the line-up.

 

The distillery and the winery moved several times in their early days, in 2008, the purchase of a forty-acre farm outside of Sheridan Oregon brought them together for the first time. This was the same year barley was first planted on the farm. Ransom Farms is located in the Willamette Valley in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range. In keeping with their commitment to sustainability and stewardship, the farm has been certified Organic since 2011. Ransom distills their spirits in a hand-hammered, direct-fired French alembic pot still, making all of the selective cuts by taste and smell, without the use of computers or robots. This labour intensive, traditional method of distillation retains greater aromatic intensity and body from the raw materials they select with such great care. Ransom mash and ferment the base wort on site weekly in small batches, sourcing local and organic grains and incorporating barley grown on their own farm. The gins include the finest natural botanicals, many of which are Organically grown in Oregon.

Ransom strives embody core values of historicity, craftsmanship, and terroir. Ransom works hard every day to make products that speak to their literal and figurative roots. They have created dynamic, terroir-driven craft spirits with the weight and aromatic complexity of their predecessors. This also speaks meaningfully of a new provenance; the green foothills of the Oregon Cascades, where a new tradition of distilling is springing to life.
