Hood River Distillers unveiled the newest edition to its American whiskey portfolio: Easy Rider Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Easy Rider has roots in Oregon and was acquired by Hood River Distillers in 2018 to broaden its premium spirits portfolio, the company says. Prior to reintroducing the brand to consumers, Hood River opted to change the liquid to a four-year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which then was blended with glacier-fed spring water from Mount Hood; resulting in a smooth bourbon that is designed to be consumed as a shot or paired with mixers, it adds. Easy Rider is available on the West Coast for a suggested retail price of $24.95 for a 750-ml bottle.
