Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge Distillery makes one of the best bourbons in the world. The distillery, which is only 4,000 square feet itself, is situated 9,600 feet above sea level, making it the highest distillery in the world. There, Jordan Via — Breckenridge’s master distiller — ferments a mash of 56% corn, 38% rye, and 6% malted barley in an open-top Scottish fermenter before distilling it twice through a $140,000, 550-gallon, Vendome copper-pot still originally made in Kentucky.

With a profound range of expressions ranging from award-winning bourbons and port cask finished whiskeys to chili flavored vodkas, and over two dozen awards, including 2 “Distillery of the Year” awards, Breckenridge is without saying a well-established player in the game. This is very impressive considering Bryan Nolt founded Breckenridge in 2007.

After distillation, their bourbon is aged at 120 proof in American white oak casks with a number 3 char for approximately three years and is then brought to proof using pure Rocky Mountain snowmelt from atop Mount Quandry, which has a 14,000-foot peak. “In Breckenridge, we have fresh snowmelt water that’s full of minerals and has its own flavor,” says Bryan Nolt, Breckenridge Distillery’s founder and CEO. “The pH is perfect and the minerals add taste to our spirits just as salt adds flavor to foods,” he says.

The taste of Breckenridge Bourbon is certainly turning heads and receiving countless awards. The unusually high rye content gives it depth and complexity. Naturally, a couple of different cask finishes followed. This one is finished in madeira fortified wine casks that add layers of rich flavors without too much sweetness, making for a deliciously complex 92-proof spirit.
