SPIRITED AMERICAN MALT WHISKEY


 
 

Our love for adventure inspires the places we go and the company we keep. Rather than building a traditional distillery that aims to create the same thing over and over again, we prefer to explore what the world out there has to offer us. Chasing life and opportunity wherever it takes us, the people we meet along the way are the most rewarding part of our adventures. Every Wanderback American malt whiskey release is as much an expression of the friendships we forge as it is of the raw materials that go into it.

Collaborating with the best distillers and distilleries in America, we share knowledge, stories and ideas to create a bespoke grain bill, shaping barley into new and interesting malt whiskies. As part of the journey, we always return home with unique barrels of small-batch, malt whiskey in tow to age at our farm in Hood River, Oregon. Here, in the shadow of Mt. Hood, we finish, taste and bottle small batch whiskey with friends. We live, laugh, play, dream and enjoy the bounty.

To contact us, email info@wanderback.com or call (503) 305 9261. We look forward to connecting.

Whiskey


We take the long-standing tradition of independent bottling and give it a new twist. Our Founder creates a unique mash bill and then works with partner craft distilleries across the U.S. to distill small batch American single malt whiskey. The whiskey is aged, finished, and bottled on our Farm in Hood River, Oregon. Try Batch No. 1 and Batch No. 2 — both memorable and distinct.

The Farm


Our 40-acre farm in Hood River, Oregon is home to a barn built in the 1920s where we age our whiskey. It’s a fertile slope of land on which we grow the estate barleys to carry with us on our adventures in whiskey-making. Around the fire at the end of every day, we come together to relive the moments over a dram of Oregon whiskey. And while our thoughts return to where we’ve been, they always wander to where we’re going next.

In the shadow of Mt. Hood, we live, adventure and work on the farm. While it’s true that we roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty, we have way too much fun while we do it.  Here, we’re restless. Here, we’re boundless. And here, away from the constraints of the real world, we find a renewed appreciation for the richness of life. We work the land, cook good food, drink good whiskey and enjoy life with friends and family.
