STRAIGHT MALT WHISKY

90 PROOF

Our flagship product: 100% Colorado from grain to glass.

Containing barley that is both grown and malted in Alamosa, CO, we add a Scottish twist by including a small percentage of peated malt. The whisky ages for a minimum of two years in new, full-size, charred American Oak barrels. After that, it’s up to the discretion of our sensory panel to determine when to bottle. As with all our spirits, we use fresh Rocky Mountain snowmelt water to cut the proof.  The whisky is bottled as a single barrel - we don’t do any blending. This approach allows us (and you!) to experience the many nuances that make each barrel unique.
