Born from fire
Sometimes great things can happen when disaster strikes. Back in 1994 a small fire broke out in a barn that belonged to George Stranahan a beer brewer from outside of Denver. The one who came to help was Jess Graber a volunteer firefighter that not only saved the day but the two soon discovered that they share the same passion, love for outdoors and good ol’ fine Whiskey. It didn’t just stay at talk and soon after the first legal distillery in Colorado since prohibition was opened.
Taking the mountain surrounding to their advantage they not only use the pure water coming down from snowy peaks but also the Rocky Mountain Barley that delivers the smooth flavor on which they are especially proud.
The Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey is aged for at least two years in new charred Oak barrels and then watered down with the water from Eldorado spring. The Whiskey itself is a blend of 2, 3 and 5 year old Whiskeys. This “Single Malt” is one of the first 100% malted Barley Whiskeys made in USA out there!
