Pendleton Whisky is a brand of blended Canadian whisky, distilled in Canada and imported, bottled, and distributed by Hood River Distillers, Inc., of Hood River, Oregon[1] and known as the largest and oldest importer, producer, and bottler of distilled spirits in the Pacific Northwest.[2]

Created in 2003 and distributed throughout the United States, the 80-proof oak barrel-aged whiskey is cut with water from Mount Hood.[3] Pendleton Whisky was created to honor the American cowboy and celebrates the tradition of the 101-year-old Pendleton Round-Up, a large annual rodeo.[4] The whisky is also the official spirit of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), and the product is the presenting sponsor of the All American ProRodeo Series, which includes 400-plus PRCA rodeos.[5]
