No matter who you are, where you come from, no matter your level of education, your age, no matter how you look or don't look, how much money you have & no matter what others think of you... it's all about risking everything for your dreams...

Before I opened BackDrop Distilling I was a sound engineer for bands like BEN HARPER, WILLIE NELSON, THE PIXIES & so many amazing artists as they rolled through Bend. My dream was to open a craft distillery, create my own BackDrop & bring beautiful craft spirits to life.

Backdrop Distilling Vodka Oregon Distillery Bend Oregon We are a distillery in Bend Oregon bringing an award winning vodka to market.  We also are in Seattle & Spokane Washington.

THERE IS NO RIGHT TIME TO PURSUE YOUR DREAM: you just have to do it... as in right now. Make a plan & go, jump, leap... risk everything & don't look back. We are here only one time. Shouldn't we spend it creating, doing & sharing what we love?

BackDrop Distilling opened in April a few years ago, located inside GoodLife Brewing & I'm proud to announce that our Vodka has now received international double gold, silver & bronze medals from New York, Los Angeles & Seattle right outta' Bend Oregon:)

The most important award in all of it though sincerely has been all of you. You who support local Distilleries & Breweries in our Backyard! You who've had / have a bottle of BackDrop Organic Wheat Vodka in your freezer! You have been a part of the movement of craft spirits, hand crafted cocktails / mixology and for all of us craft distilleries I want to thank you...

Creating your own world is a state of mind & a series of steps. Design backwards from your destination to where you stand, then climb the ladder, believe in it, explore it, research it, master it, practice it, own it, live it, love it, and enjoy the journey. Sound cheesy? Bend is FULL of beautiful entrepreneurs / artists & I wanted to take a moment to celebrate your Spirit, your Courage, your Passion!.

The back of my bottle reads:

"Creating your own BackDrop is about SMASHING the norms, BEND-ing the rules & exploring your passions at all costs. Break open a bottle of BackDrop Vodka and #EnterTheSpiritWorld with style. Your theme song awaits...

So... I'd like to invite anyone who comments with their theme song below (the one that gets you motivated to go kick ass at your dreams) to our VIP tasting of our BackDrop Gin coming out this summer! I'll privately send you two tickets to say thank you for your support.

Mt Bachelor celebrated by reaching out to us ... BackDrop Distilling.  Featuring our international award winning Vodka, Mt. Bachelor's mixologist Teyanna M Clevenger Pototskiy created a brilliant cocktail they of course named "The BackDrop CloudChaser". In this film we see how BackDrop hides a mixologists craft cocktail recipe inside every bottle which they literaly bottle by hand right here in their distillery.


Mixologist T. Clevenger joined BackDrop as seen in this film to bottle a run that features 'her' CloudChaser creation which is now in liquor stores in Central Oregon. THE STATS OF THE NEW CLOUD CHASER LIFT ARE IMPRESSIVE:

6576 feet in length, 21 towers, capable of moving 2400 people an hour lifting powder junkies 1448 vertical feet to the top of a mountain, Mt Bachelor's new lift was given the name THE CLOUDCHASER & is a milestone for Central Oregon.

Horizontal Length 6,576 feet, Vertical Rise 1,448 feet
Number of Chairs 141, Number of Towers 21, Uphill Capacity 2,400 people per hour
Additional Groomed Runs 6.2 miles/36 acres, Additional Skiable Acres 635 acres
Total Skiable Acres 4,318 acres

The name Cloudchaser pays tribute to the mountain’s unique weather patterns and the phenomenon whereby approaching clouds from the west tend to dissipate and disappear altogether as they wrap around the summit and pass to Mt. Bachelor’s east side. Below our some lift stats & inside this film is a tour of the hand bottling process & The CloudChaser run itself!

Legendary mixologist Teyanna M Clevenger Pototskiy created the CloudChaser cocktail. You'll see her in this film helping Mark Plants of BackDrop as he hand bottles ... every single bottle locally. Inside each bottle is a recipe that he hides featuring a legendary cocktail. On this run of course it is The BackDrop CloudChaser cocktail recipe.
