Pendleton Director’s Reserve 20 Year Old Canadian Whiskey
Pendleton Director’s Reserve is a blended Canadian whisky combined with glacier-fed spring water from Oregon’s Mt. Hood. After aging for 20 years, it’s bottled at a 40% ABV. The bottle is wrapped in a commemorative leather sleeve created by saddle-maker Randy Severe, whose family has been making saddles for almost 70 years.
Inside each bottle of Directors’ Reserve is a story. One that embodies the lore and legacy of the Pendleton Round-Up – an iconic symbol of rodeo heritage. Aged for twenty years, it’s clear the wait was worth it from the very first sip. Pure, glacier-fed spring water from Oregon’s Mt. Hood allows the unadorned, warm notes of oak, cinnamon, and rye to shine through. A little water or an ice cube opens up orange spice, vanilla, and caramel, followed by a mature and mellow finish.
The relationship between Pendleton Directors’ Reserve and Pendleton’s classic expression is quite direct. If you like the everyday Pendleton, you’ll love the Directors’ Reserve. It’s like drinking the same whisky, only with the sugar and caramel notes turned down, and the spice and leather notes turned up. More balanced and better-integrated, this won’t disappoint Pendleton’s fans one bit.
An exceptional whisky that deserves to be showcased, the bottle is wrapped in a leather sleeve with tooling crafted by third-generation saddle maker Randy Severe, whose family has made custom saddles for nearly 70 years. Enjoy neat to truly savor the inextinguishable soul of the American West. With Directors’ Reserve, age has never looked or tasted better.
