Before the fireworks this Independence Day weekend, mix up a smooth cocktail with Pendleton Whisky’s limited edition Military Appreciation bottle.
Bottled in Oregon using glacier-fed spring water from Mt. Hood, Pendleton Whisky is a reliable choice for the responsible adults who will be mixing and pouring cocktails at gatherings this summer. And it is the right move for the July Fourth holiday — Pendleton's makers are committed to honoring veterans and those currently serving.
In fact, this year marks Pendleton’s third special release of its Military Appreciation bottle. Portions of the proceeds from the 2021 edition benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation, an organization that works to empower and support service members and veterans. Pendleton has also pledged $100,000 to the cause outright.
Are you interested in finding the Military Appreciation bottle? Here’s some info on the special edition release, from Pendleton’s press announcement earlier this year:
The Oregon-based whisky brand will release a limited run of the Military Appreciation bottles, which feature Pendleton’s famous red bucking horse and ‘Let’er Buck’ tagline with several military embellishments including the common military term, ‘Got Your Six,’ which means ‘we’ve got your back.’ The bottles, which carry Pendleton Whisky’s flagship Original whisky, known for its smooth taste and cut with glacier-fed spring waters from Oregon’s Mt. Hood, will be distributed where Pendleton Whisky is available around the United States.
And what should you whip up once you have some Pendleton Whisky on your table or bar? The company has offered up fans and readers a patriotic cocktail recipe to serve guests at Fourth of July gatherings. It'll give you the perfect blend for when you cheers to friends, family, country, and all of those who protect us.
