Award-winning Timberline Vodka is made at Hood River Distillers in Oregon. It’s distilled from a unique blend of grain, 14 varieties of Pacific Northwest apples, and glacier-fed spring water from Mt. Hood.
“It’s so interesting because they actually know which glaciers they use, Coe and Eliot glaciers on Mount Hood,” said Suzie Wiley, New Day NW producer.
The taste of the vodka starts with a clean, mineral flavor, followed by a soft, smooth finish from the apples. This allows for a richness and balance not found in many other vodkas.
Water is a vital part of the Timberline business and a major component of what makes the product unique.
“One thing that they are really passionate about is the Freshwater Trust that they’re part of, which is a nonprofit that restores the freshwater ecosystems," Wiley said. "Obviously, water is super important to Timberline."
Timberline was created for those who love the outdoors, and its label is a patch-like, canvas fabric that easily peels of and can be reused as a sticker. The bottle is also easily reusable.
Timberline Vodka can be enjoyed on its own, neat, or over ice. It also works well in cocktails, like a Pink Martini.
How to make a Pink Martini:
-Muddle one strawberry in a cocktail shaker
-Add several ice cubes and fresh lemon juice
-Pour 2 ounces of Timberline Vodka in the shaker
-Add a half ounce of simple syrup and a half ounce of Monarch Triple Sec
-Shake, pour in glass, and enjoy!
