Named for the iconic Western town of Pendleton, Oregon and its renowned rodeo, the Pendleton Round-Up, Pendleton® Whisky is committed to carrying on the traditions of the American West and standing with those who defend them. Pendleton Whisky is saluting those who served this Armed Forces Day with the release of its third limited edition Military Appreciation bottle, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to both United States veterans and the great country they protect.
Pendleton teamed up with the Bob Woodruff Foundation to develop the limited edition bottle and has pledged $100,000 to the organization to help fund the veteran-focused nonprofits it supports across the country. A portion of the proceeds from Pendleton’s limited edition bottle will also benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
Active military members and veterans of the United States Armed Forces embody the core values of courage, independence, and commitment—the very same values that Pendleton Whisky was created to celebrate. Made to honor those who have served, Pendleton Whisky’s Military Appreciation bottle is the first to benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
“We’ve ‘Got Your Six’ this is the enduring commitment that we make to our veterans and their families, and I’m proud to have Pendleton Whisky standing with us,” said Bob Woodruff Foundation CEO Anne Marie Dougherty. “With Pendleton’s commitment, we have the opportunity to provide the programs and services that our veterans and their families need as they face a range of challenges.”
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.
