Gold For Grand Opening!

I’m so excited to announce that we’ve just been awarded TWO Gold medals from the Denver International Spirits Competition – right in time for our Grand Opening (April 14th/15th)!

That’s right – our Vodka and our Brandy (American Char#1 barrel-finished) have both been awarded top scores, garnering GOLD medals on the international stage. Our “unaged” Brandy also received a Bronze medal in the “eau de vie” category. Considering that these are our first batches ever, I’m THRILLED to be able to say “…and we’re just getting started!”

Denver International Spirits Competition Gold and Bronze medals

I’ll have more updates coming soon, keep an eye out for our official announcement about our Grand Opening, scheduled for April 14th & 15th.

We’re now serving four products in the distillery store: Vodka and a series of three different Brandies: “un-aged”, Tawny “Port” barrel-finished, and American Char#1 finished.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why the Tawny finished didn’t medal…we only made about 15 cases of the Tawny Barrel Finished, and we won’t be able to make more till next year’s tawny is removed from barrel, so we didn’t really think we had enough to justify sending it off to the competition. In hindsight…oops…maybe we should have!
