Marketing Mgr - Trade and Traditional, NOT Digital

Wilderton LLC

Hybrid > Hood River, OR

Job Description:


Marketing Manager


Hood River or Portland, OR

Company Information

Wilderton was founded in Oregon in 2019 as an early leader in the exploding non-alcoholic drinks industry, to bring a craft spirits sensibility to mindful cocktails, with liquids worthy of playing a part in the growing mixology culture. Unlike other non-alc spirits brands, we were founded by distillers, who make our own liquids from scratch in our first in the nation distillery in Hood River, OR, through a unique production process blending tradition with technology. Drawing on techniques from craft distilling, perfume making and tea production to create complex, bold liquids that won’t be mistaken for anything currently behind the bar.

Our products, ethos and culture are crafted wild & free. We are driven by curiosity, integrity, inclusiveness, and balance.
