Jacob Bera: Alaskan Hero’s Pure Act of Kindness.

Jacob Bera, Coach and Visual Arts teacher at Eagle River High School in Anchorage Alaska, ran the Boston marathon in honor of Sandy Hook Victim Daniel Barden. After reading Daniel Barden’s story on a face book page, Bera posted a letter, “Learning about Daniel reminded me of the power of simple acts of kindness, and that’s something I model for my students each and every day.” As a pure act of kindness, he decided to venture cross-country to run the Boston Marathon.

Fortunately, Jacob Bera finished the marathon before the explosion. It was tragic being in Boston at the time but the community came together to help when the city of Boston needed it most. It was a sad day for many Americans, but Bera’s act of kindness has inspired others to follow in his footsteps and “pay it forward.”  He gives his extra support for the Boston community affected by the explosion, and hopes to add to his past contributions made to the Barden’s.

Truuli Peak Vodka is happy to support Jacob Bera and his heroic actions.

Northern Lights – The Alaskan Aurora Borealis.


The Aurora is the glow of solar particles that are blown into the earth’s magnetic field, more than 60 miles above the earth’s surface at speeds up to 35,000 miles per hour. These mystical lights have captured the eyes and imaginations of everyone who has seen them.

Here are some tips to see & predict when the auroras will appear:

  • The best months are March & September- Night time with clear skies 10pm-2am. But you can still see them at any time!
  • If it is clear enough to see the stars, there is a chance you’ll be able to see the aurora. Rural areas, away from city lights- especially near mountains are bound to have beautifully colored auroras in the skies.

And remember to stay warm with a glass of Truuli Peak Vodka by your side to Truuli make it an unforgettable moment.

How was your Aurora experience? Let us know!

Raise A Glass

Remember in school how we were taught to reduce, reuse, and recycle? That notion can fall to the wayside in this day and age with everything being so convenient. There’s little to no reason to take something that you’re about to throw away, and turn it into something potentially useful. I mean, who has the time for that anyway, right?

Well for those who are familiar with the site ETSY, it happens all of the time. Artists/recyclers are constantly taking another man’s trash and turning it into your next conversation piece. While scrolling around on the site, I came across a shop owned by Sindra Wolfsen that has a unique product. Wolfsen’s shop offers glasses that were made from liquor bottles. Simply cut the neck off of almost any liquor bottle and you have an eye catching conversation starter for your next dinner party.

Now we don’t advocate you personally trying this act of art, glass cutting isn’t something you pick up overnight and it can be dangerous.  We do, however, advocate that you change the way you look at the world. Where many might see something for the recycling bin, Wolfsen took a Truuli Peak bottle and now has tall, frosted glasses that is “Truuli” unique.

Considering the time and effort that went into making and designing these bottles, we’re glad that they can live on with a new purpose. Image

October Spirit

With the Fall season well upon us, we are slowly but surely creeping into winter (at least in Alaska).

Before it’s too late, I decided to treat myself to a tasty treat to reflect the Fall spirit within myself. Which drink did I choose? The Pumpkin Spice Martini.

Pour 1.5 fl. oz. (or however much your little heart desires) of Truuli Peak Vodka, 1.5 fl. oz. Irish cream liqueur, and 1.5 fl. oz. pumpkin flavored liqueur into a cocktail shaker over ice. Cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg to serve.

Cheers to the Halloween season!
