JVR Spirits

Hand Crafted Spirits From Portland Oregon

What happens when a fly fishing physicist explores the serendipities of a centuries old confluence of bees and booze? JVR Spirits Krupnik.

Legends say that Benedictine monks in Poland and Lithuania made Krupnik as far back as the 15th century. At JVR Spirits, we make Krupnik by hand from a recipe my dad perfected in his garage in Eugene, Oregon in the late 20th century. The rich flavor comes from whole spices and fresh citrus, blended with honey and column-distilled neutral grain spirits.

Meet Krupnik

JVR is my Dad

He made Krupnik in our garage and shared it with family, friends, and colleagues all over the world. They would invariably ask, “Where can I get more?”

I founded JVR Spirits to answer that question.
