Our Story

Elixir® craft distillery, founded by Italian brothers Andrea and Mario Loreto in Eugene, Oregon, is dedicated to revivifying traditional spirits in the Italian tradition using the finest all-natural ingredients. All of our spirits are composed of pure McKenzie River water, neutral spirit and selected botanicals. One of the cleanest streams in the country, the McKenzie River originates from seven springs in the west slope of the Oregon High Cascades, an historic volcanic mountain range in central Oregon. Snow melt and rain water slowly filter through one thousand-meter thick basaltic volcanic rock for between five and sixty years before joining the river, thus ensuring that the water is wholly pristine. Unspoiled McKenzie River water is only half of the story, however. At Elixir®, we use the purest neutral spirit, filtering it several times through activated charcoal and crushed lava rock and ultimately running it through specialized copper tubing to eliminate any remaining impurities. Our time-intensive filtering process is worth its weight in gold: our distinctive process successfully strips the spirit of its “fire” while preserving its natural warmth. At Elixir®, we create our liqueurs in small, handmade batches. We carefully test each batch prior to bottling to ensure that the artful array of barks, spices, and flowers has matured into a perfect mosaic of flavors. The result is all-natural artisanal liqueurs of rare purity and inimitable flavor.
