About Colkegan Cask Strength Single Malt Whiskey

In 1990, Colin Keegan left his native country of England and moved to the British Virgin Islands with his wife, Suzette, and their daughter Phoebe. It was there, while continuing his successful career as an architect, that Colin realized his dream of living in a traditional farming community in the Southwest, and shortly thereafter Colin and his family moved once again to a mature apple orchard in Tesuque, New Mexico.

The abundance of apple cider each season gave Colin an idea, and in 2010, Colin left his job as an architect to create Santa Fe Spirits. At first, Colin focused on distilling the excess apple cider into apple brandy, and after some initial success, he expanded his business into gin, vodka, and whiskey, all of which have a distinctly Southwestern flavor.

Colkegan Single Malt Whiskey is made with 100% malted barley, which is mesquite smoked — Scotch whiskey is traditionally smoked over a peat flame, rather than wood chips — to give it a distinctly Southwestern flavor. The whiskey is then aged for a minimum of two years in a combination of new American oak and ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled by hand and individually numbered.

This is the 118-proof cask strength version of their mesquite smoked single malt whiskey. Undiluted, the essence of the whiskey is preserved with enhanced flavors and aromas of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and baking spice. The expression is bottled from single barrels.

About American Whiskey

There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.


There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.


And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
