The Shine Story

Shine Distillery & Grill started out as the dream of Jon Poteet some seventeen years ago, and may or may not have involved a few bottles of vodka and whiskey illicitly batched in a still created from a retired beer keg. This was the beginning of a massive undertaking to create the first-of-its-kind working distillery and full-service restaurant in the state of Oregon. It took Jon over a decade to rally the funding, source the right contractor, architect, and management team. With an overwhelming amount of support from Jon’s family, friends, and the community, the perfect location for Shine Distillery & Grill was found and construction began in November 2018.
