A real aged Whiskey with a blueberry pie palate and nose.
Leopold Bros. was founded by Todd and Scott Leopold in 1999. Todd has degrees in Malting and Brewing and Scott has his degrees in Economics and Industrial Engineering. These two brothers have since done the sensible thing and founded a distillery — first in Michigan, then moving everything back to their home state of Colorado. Their core lineup today is winning lots of awards and consists of Gins, Straight and Flavored Whiskies, Vodka, Aperitifs, an Absinthe Vert, and a few other tidbits.
Perhaps the best way to think of Leopold Bros. Rocky Mountain Blackberry Flavored Whiskey is as a bottled cocktail. But that’s not fair either. It is a combination of Leopold Bros. corn and rye Whiskey blended with the juice of Rocky Mountain blackberries. They are aged in charred American oak. The deep royal color is natural. No colorings or flavorings or sweeteners are added — premium Whiskey and juice, that’s it. And it’s bottled at 40% ABV.
