Hood River Distillers, Inc., the largest and oldest importer, distiller, producer and bottler of distilled spirits in the Northwest, today announces a limited edition bottle for Pendleton® Whisky that honors the integrity and patriotism of those who serve, and have served, our country with pride.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Pendleton Whisky limited edition bottle will be donated to the Wrangler® National Patriot™ program to make a difference in the lives of active military personnel and veterans throughout the country.

“It is with this limited edition bottle of Pendleton Whisky that we raise a glass and proudly salute the honorable men and women, and their families, who have dedicated their lives to the American people by serving in the United States military,” says Tia Bledsoe, senior brand manager, Hood River Distillers. “We have a high degree of admiration for our service members – past and present – and look forward to partnering with the Wrangler National Patriot program on this meaningful endeavor.”

Founded in 2009, the Wrangler National Patriot program is designed to raise awareness and funds for wounded or fallen American military veterans and their families by uniting the rodeo and western communities in fundraising efforts.

The Pendleton Whisky 2015 limited edition bottle will be available at spirits retailers throughout the country beginning May 2015 with a suggested retail price of $26.95 (750 ml). Additionally, the Pendleton Whisky limited edition bottle was designed by Owens-Illinois, Inc. (O-I, o-i.com), the world’s largest glass container manufacturer, with bottle art designed by French/West/Vaughan.

“Pendleton Whisky has always been a friend of the Wrangler National Patriot program, and we are excited to now announce this formal partnership,” says Jeff Chadwick, director of special events for Wrangler Western Wear. “The Pendleton Whisky 2015 limited edition bottle further enforces the combined dedication from both organizations to patriotism nationwide.”
