A Western Single Malt where the barley has been smoked with mesquite for a new stand-out American classic.

A trained architect, Colin Keegan left England in 1990 to live in the British West Indies. He met his wife there. Then they moved with their daughter to Sante Fe New Mexico, eventually finding their way into a farming community among ancient apple orchards. It was pressing and fermenting cider on his farm that got the family into the Spirits business. And when the economy struggled in 2009, he took it on full time, founding Santa Fe Spirits in 2010. The continue to live on their farm and distill a wide range of Spirits from Gin and Brandies to Whiskies and Liqueurs.

Santa Fe Spirits produces a Western style Single Malt. And that means the malt has been smoked with native mesquite wood — a genus of shrub-like trees native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. It is also a much sought-after flavoring wood for smoking meats. But where Scottish peat delivers oily and briny notes, mesquite brings lively drying warmth. Colkegan Cask Strength Single Malt Whiskey is that same, award-winning dram delivered at 59% ABV.

Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
