Pendleton Whisky joins the California Rodeo Sponsor Family

The California Rodeo Salinas is excited to announce Pendleton Whisky as the Official Spirit of the California Rodeo Salinas. Pendleton® Whisky was specifically created to celebrate the bold spirit of independence and hard-work ethic of the American cowboy and cowgirl. Made with glacier-fed spring water from the high peak of Oregon's Mt. Hood, Pendleton Whisky delivers an uncommonly smooth taste and rich, complex flavor. Each batch of oak barrel-aged whisky is crafted from the finest ingredients and bottled exclusively by Hood River Distillers.

During the Rodeo, adults 21 and over will be able to enjoy Pendleton Whisky and additional Hood River Distillers products in the Pendleton Saloon as well as the Bull X-ing Cantina; both are open all four days of the 105th California Rodeo Salinas, July 16th-19th.   The California Rodeo is happy to welcome Pendleton Whisky to our sponsor family and is excited to share their partnership and smooth tasting whisky with Rodeo fans!  


Do you want to experience a selection of cocktails made with Pendleton Whisky and other spirits from the Hood River Distillers portfolio?  Keep an eye out for a “Pendleton Whisky Tasting” announcement coming soon.  You can also stay up to date with all of the California Rodeo events by following us on Facebook and Twitter or checking our website frequently at www.carodeo.com.
