Thoughtfully made in the Pacific Northwest.

Both Westland and Snake River Farms take the long view of things. In a commodity-driven world we make different choices. To value raw ingredients. To value people. To value flavor. Our home, the Pacific Northwest, is bountiful for the rancher and farmer alike. We are students of the land, striving to listen to its instruction. Raising cattle and planting barley both rely on the gifts of nature that our region provides. We embrace our role as stewards of this place. From pasture to plate and from barley to bottle, we seek to represent the place we are from in every product we make. Of course, none of this would be possible if you couldn’t taste the difference in the end. Each dram of whiskey and every fresh cut of beef ultimately must stand on its own merit. It must be delicious. Our brands stand on so much more, but certainly nothing less.

ON THE MENU

On a recent trip to the mountains a few hours east of Seattle, we stripped away the refinements of the modern kitchen and brought our wares into the wild. Cooking by campfire we found your meal is only as good as its ingredients and in this case the feast surpassed all expectations.

WESTLAND WET RUB PREP

While most people might use olive oil or yellow mustard to help their rub adhere to the meat, we love using Westland American Oak as it provides a light coffee and chocolate notes, tenderizes the the meat, and provides a great surface for your favorite dry rub to adhere to. Either pour 1oz directly over the surface of the meat and rub in thoroughly or add Westland into a container with meat, making sure to coat both sides. Let it rest in refrigerator overnight prior to grilling.

If you really want to bring out the notes of coffee and chocolate from the roasted malts used in the whiskey try the following dry rub:

8 oz Coarse Ground pepper
8 oz Kosher Salt
2 oz ground coffee
2 oz cinnamon
2 oz brown sugar

Scale the recipe to make sure that your meat can be well coated. Mix all ingredients well and sprinkle over all sides from a distance of 8-12 inches from the meat to ensure an even application.

Cocktails

Cooking in the wild doesn’t demand all comforts be left behind. While grilling our favorite steaks we came up with a few campfire inspired cocktails to complement. These recipes can be enjoyed in the backyard or the backcountry depending on the drinking vessel you have handy.
