Brandi Devine says: Toledo has officially gained it’s own distillery! Cowlitz River Distillery, owned by Cindy and Chad Robins, is located off Jackson Hwy. and will be shelving Toledo Market Fresh with their product. They began making distilled spirits in 2011 and finally have a product that competes with those made during the glory days of moonshine. Their moonshine is made from Washington State Corn, and they are currently working on labeling their very own vodka as well. They are great friends and I couldn’t be more proud of their accomplishment. Contact them at (360) 864-6415.
Sheila Richardson says: Congratulations to Tammy Zuber, who won the iPad Mini playing ToledoTel’s 30 Days of Toledo Trivia Facebook contest! A trivia question was posted every morning for 30 days in December and correct answers were entered in a drawing. Thanks to all participants. We had a lot of fun, and everyone learned something new about Toledo. Reminder: Open House Jan. 28 in our newly remodeled Plomondon Rd. offices, featuring Wheel of Give Aways, fantastic prizes all day long, plus coffee and donuts.
