The Remarkable and Adventurous Life of Ewing Young
Ewing Young is an important American pioneer who is buried at Ewing Young Farm, where the Ewing Young Distillery is located.
About 125 yards away from the Distillery stands the magnificent Ewing Young Oak, an Oregon Heritage Tree planted in 1846, that marks Ewing’s grave site. The tree and grave are wholly contained on the 147-acre Farm property, which is the epicenter of the 50 square miles Ewing Young claimed as his own back in 1834. Ewing’s burial site and tree were so honored because he is an important figure not only in the history of Oregon but also the westward expansion of the United States.
Ewing Young’s remarkable—and little known—true life story inspired us to create a distillery at the Farm. Establishing a Distillery named for Ewing Young at his final resting place, in the heart of his original land claim, is a natural tribute to his saga.
