August 31, 2021

LAKE OSWEGO, OR – Aug. 31, 2021 – JLL, a leading real estate and investment management firm, today announced it has closed on a lease for Freeland Spirits, a women-owned whiskey and gin craft distillery in Portland. This space serves as the growth-oriented distillery’s second tasting room in the Portland area.

JLL’s Retail team, including Karen Busteed and Brittany Bersani, represented the tenant in this transaction.

The tasting room, consisting of 1,350 square feet of commercial real estate space, is located at Lakeview Village (310 N State St., Suite 108) in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Highly anticipated by Lake Oswego community members and spirit fanatics alike, this new space offers Freeland’s premiere selection of gin and whiskey, as well as hand sanitizer and local mixers.

“JLL is thrilled to be a part of Freeland’s women-powered journey, assisting in their expansion across the Portland market,” said Brittany Bersani, retail associate for JLL in Portland. “They’re one of very few women-owned and run distilleries in history and securing this additional location certainly serves as a testament to their growth and what’s to come.”

“Our M.O. at Freeland is all about celebrating the women of the craft – from the gals who grow the grain, to those who run the still,” said Jill Kuehler, founder of Freeland Spirits. “We’re ecstatic to open our second location at Lakeview Village in mid-September, and to continue creating superior spirits that celebrate all the Northwest has to offer.”
