"Hand-harvested alpine herbs mingle with ancient bitter roots and spicy dried fruits in a symphony of aromas and flavors that recall the mystery of old world alchemy. This exquisite aperitif bitters strikes a remarkable balance of alluring aromatics and bittersweet flavors that will inspire the adventurous imbiber to the last sip." Best in Show at the 2014 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition.

I admit to being a physician and a whisk(e)y nerd. In 2007 I had the arguably really bad idea of starting a distillery in Breckenridge, Colorado. Cashing out my life savings, kids' college fund, and eventually selling my house to cover monthly payroll and taxes, we bootstrapped our way through the early years loving every minute of it.
Today it would be fair to call us a successful distillery. We made it this far by checking our egos at the door, assembling the best cast and crew, and exhibiting the tenacity of a starving honey badger. I challenge you to find a team of employees and artists anywhere else with as much skill and dedication. I must also confess our unfair advantage due to the unique features of the Breckenridge water we use for proofing and blending every bottle of our spirits.
Founder and CEO
We're not trying to prove a point or show off. Rather, we try to work smarter and offer you the simple pleasures of quality, mouthfeel, and flavor.
During the summer months we press fresh Colorado Western slope fruits for our Brandies, Liqueurs, and Vodka flavorings. We prefer using local ingredients whenever possible. Year round we make grain to bottle Whiskeys and Rum, distill botanicals, and blend Bourbon Whiskey in small batches. Our Blend of Bourbon Whiskeys also consists of Barrels selected from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana chosen for their unique qualities, heritage, and ability to marry in our blend, always made from a high-rye mash bill.
