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.

Stranahan's Original Whiskey is the number #1 American Single Malt in the US. That says something. Hailing from the heart of the Rocky Mountains a.k.a. Colorado, it’s hand-crafted from 100% barley, aged for a minimum of 4 years in new charred American oak barrels, and bottled under one roof. It was not chill-filtered, which means you get to fully savor the flavors of this small-batch offering. Prepare for aromas of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and leather that lead into the cinnamon-y, butter-y, chocolate-y, and warm palate.

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
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.
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.
The origins of Stranahan's is quite a story. In 1998, Graber, a volunteer firefighter, met Stranahan --the founder and owner of Flying Dog Brewery-- while fighting a fire at Stranahan's barn. After striking up a conversation about Whiskey, they decided to start a business together, and that is how Stranahan's was born.
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.
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.
