Westward Whiskey Releases 2021 Benefit Barrel Bottles, Announces Beneficiary Charities


October 21, 2021

Westward Whiskey announced the second 2021 Westward Benefit Barrel release to benefit charities focused on houselessness and food insecurity.

The fourth release in Westward’s Benefit Barrel series, which contributes 100% of proceeds to various causes that affect our community, will benefit two key charities: Oregon’s Transition Projects and California’s No Us Without You. Since the company kicked off this initiative, Westward has raised nearly $20,000 for various causes.

The 2021 Westward Benefit Barrel release is a blend of two single barrels that were hand-picked by lead distiller and blender Miles Munroe, who chose two casks that were barreled on the same day, but 5 years apart.

Bottled at 100 proof and priced at $99.95 for 750ml, the release is available today through Westward’s tasting rooms, the company’s Oregon online store, and for preorder at Westward’s national online store, which ships to nearly 30 states across the U.S.

Sales in Oregon will benefit Transition Projects, which provides individuals with the services, resources and tools they need to end their homelessness, secure housing, and maintain that housing. Sales outside Oregon will benefit California’s No Us Without You, a public charity created by Va’La Hospitality, a bar consultancy group.
