Collection: Hood River Distillers
The Northwest’s largest and oldest importer, producer, bottler, and marketer of distilled spirits
Hood River Distillers began by making fruit wines and brandies from the apples and pears that were going to waste as excess production from the valley’s abundant harvests.
Located along the Columbia River with majestic Mt. Hood as its backdrop, Hood River Distillers has been at its current bottling facility in Hood River since 1969. The company has expanded the plant for storage and made production line upgrades several times throughout the years.
While many things have changed, the tradition and dedication to product quality and to building long-term relationships has not. Hood River Distillers uses "The Cowboy Code of the West" as its model for doing business.
Cowboy Code of the West
1) Live each day with courage.
2) Take pride in your work.
3) Always finish what you start.
4) Do what has to be done.
5) Be tough, but fair.
6) When you make a promise, keep it.
7) Ride for the brand.
8) Talk less and say more.
9) Remember that some things
aren't for sale.
10) Know where to draw the line.
These ten principles play an integral part in the overall success of the company and its employees.
