Alderbrook Resort & Spa and Seattle’s OOLA Distillery Launch

Exclusive Prohibition-Inspired Whiskey

Blue Ox Blended Whiskey combines right high rye Canadian Whiskey, deep Highland Scotch, and sweet American Bourbon mash bill.

UNION, Wash. – (Jan. 24, 2017) – Alderbrook Resort & Spa, nestled two hours from Seattle on the shores of the Hood Canal, recently launched an exclusive whiskey produced by OOLA Distillery, which celebrates the property’s historic ties throughout the region. The private label whiskey, named Blue Ox Blended Whiskey, will be available as part of a whiskey flight year-round, can be enjoyed on its own or as part of a cocktail in The Restaurant or bar, or purchased at the resort in 350 mL and 750 mL sizes.

The 94-proof blended whiskey was inspired by the Prohibition, when gentlemen and ladies left their inhibitions at the door to drink and dance the night away at The Blue Ox dance hall, which was located on Hood Canal’s Highway 106, and opened by a former Seattle policeman-turned-bootlegger and named after Paul Bunyan’s companion.

“Alderbrook was first established in 1913 and was a popular destination for artists throughout the Prohibition era,” says Alderbrook Resort & Spa General Manager Shaun Tucker. “We always look for ways to celebrate our rich history and the story of these bootleggers finding respite at The Blue Ox seemed like the perfect idea to craft a whiskey around.”

Combining high rye Canadian Whiskey, deep Highland Scotch, and sweet American Bourbon mash bill, Blue Ox offers a unique flavor profile with a whiff of smoke coupled with sweet sea brine on the nose, complex mid-palate notes of spicy clove and cinnamon, and a rich, ripe candied stone fruit and pear finish. Production for Blue Ox Blended Whiskey begins with the Highland Scotch and Canadian Whiskey filling American Oak barrels for up to one year of additional aging. The trio of whiskeys are influenced by the American Oak, which contributes to the beautiful balance created by OOLA’s Head Distiller.

“The Whiskeys we use in Blue Ox are top representations of their respective styles,” says Kirby Kallas-Lewis, founder and head distiller at OOLA Distillery, which is located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. “The goal was to create something that excels beyond the individual components – the sum is definitely greater than the parts in this well-balanced spirit.”

To learn more about Alderbrook Resort & Spa’s exclusive Blue Ox Blended Whiskey, visit www.alderbrookresort.com or ooladistillery.com. For bottle shots and logos, contact alderbrook@duopr.com.

Blue Ox Blended Whiskey by OOLA Distillery

During the Prohibition, loggers, farmhands, gentlemen and ladies left their inhibitions at the door to drink deeply and dance the night away at the Blue Ox dance hall, nestled on Hood Canal’s highway 106.  Opened by a former Seattle policeman turned bootlegger and named after Paul Bunyan’s companion, bootleggers found respite at the Blue Ox before continuing their haul back to Seattle.

Drink deeply and revel in an authentic Hood Canal libation through the Blue Ox Blended Whiskey!

Bottled exclusively by Seattle’s OOLA Distillery-Blue Ox combines rich high rye Canadian Whiskey, deep Highland Scotch and sweet American Bourbon mash bill.

Guests have been celebrating nuptials at Alderbrook Resort & Spa since 1913. Enjoy this lovely video and post by Unified Cinematic of a summer wedding at our property.
* * *
What I love most about wedding videography is that every video is a chance to try new things. When I spoke to Heidi and Zubin about their video before the wedding, I asked them what was most important to them and they gave me these requests: they wanted the video to be about their friends and family, not just them; they wanted the video feature nature; they wanted music to match the happiness of the occasion; and Heidi wanted absolutely no makeup shots 😉

What begins as a set of challenges becomes a source of inspiration. With each creative decision, I used a new set of guidelines in deciding what to do, and the video that was made reflects something that none of us would have created on our own, without that sense of collaboration. Alderbrook Resort provided ample opportunity to showcase nature and the surrounding beauty of the area. There were also lots of hidden gems on the resort property, such as the covered walkway where we filmed Heidi and Zubin walking together. The resort almost feels like a luxury summer camp, with cabins, tents, and magnificent trees providing a rich backdrop along with the lakeside.

October is a month on Hood Canal where we can slow down a bit to enjoy the bounty of summer’s harvest and admire the autumn leaves changing colors.

Seattle Refined Producer, Matt Black and Host, Gaard Swanson, visited Alderbrook on an end of the summer road trip as part of Honda’s One Tank Trips campaign.
