Hood River Distillers was founded in Oregon in the 1930s as a local manufacturer of fruit wine and brandy. The company distills and imports some 50 libations, including whiskey, rum, gin, vodka, schnapps, Irish cream whiskey, scotch, and liqueurs. It has a distilling capacity of about 5 million cases of product per year, making it one of the biggest spirits operations in the Northwest. Hood River does business in more than 40 US states; its core area, however, consists of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Montana, and Alaska. Its brands include company-distilled Spudka vodka, HRD brand vodka and schnapps, as well as imported Broker's Gin, Cosckspur Rum, and Knicker's Irish Cream and Pendleton whiskeys.
