Pendleton Whisky Honors Veterans From the United States Armed Forces with Limited Edition Bottle Release￼
Pendleton Whisky, the iconic Western whisky brand, continues a tradition of standing with veterans from the United States Armed Forces by releasing the fourth iteration of the limited-edition military appreciation bottle. Born in the iconic western town of Pendleton, Oregon, and named for the revered Pendleton Round-Up rodeo, Pendleton Whisky celebrates the spirit of the American cowboy and is committed to supporting both United States veterans and the great country they protect. In addition to the limited-edition bottle, Pendleton is committed to a $100,000 donation through the proceeds of sales to the Bob Woodruff Foundation. An organization dedicated to helping service members, veterans, and their families create healthy, positive futures.
The Oregon-based whisky brand will release a limited run of the Military Appreciation bottles that will feature military embellishments including the common military term, “Got Your Six,” which means “we’ve got your back.” Each bottle will be filled with Pendleton Whisky’s Original whisky which features glacier-fed sprig water from Mt. Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak, giving it an uncommonly smooth taste and rich, complex flavor.
“Pendleton Whisky’s military appreciation bottle showcases the brand’s commitment and homage to U.S. Armed Forces and their families across the country,” said Bob Woodruff Foundation CEO Anne Marie Dougherty. “We are proud to continue this long-standing relationship with Pendleton and work with them to support military veterans and their families through a variety of challenges.”
In addition to the limited-edition bottle and commitment to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Pendleton will be launching the “Serve One Forward” campaign that will allow people to join Pendleton in giving back to veterans of the United States Armed Forces by purchasing a drink for active duty or retired service members at select bars across the country from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Purchased drinks will be displayed via tear sheets and veterans will have the opportunity to thank the person who ‘served one forward’ via Instagram. Check with your local bar to see if they will be participating.
The Pendleton Whisky Military Appreciation bottle will be available at retailers. Donations can be made to the Bob Woodruff Foundation at pendletonwhisky.com/WGY6. Visit Pendleton Whisky online at www.pendletonwhisky.com or at @PendletonWhisky on Facebook and Instagram for more information.
