About Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey

Deerhammer was founded in 2010 by Amy and Lenny Eckstein. The independent operation is based in Buena Vista, Colorado. Firmly rooted in tradition and propelled by creativity, the independent distillery crafts single-barrel American whiskey. It's a grain-to-glass operation, meaning in-house recipe creation, mashing, fermentation, distillation, and maturation. The distillery was built by Eckstein himself, repurposing dairy equipment and machinery. The 140-gallon direct-fire copper-pot still is the exception, as it was commissioned from an Arkansas artisan and made in the Scottish style. They currently produce 5 expressions: American Single Malt Whiskey, Pot Still Rye, a 4-grain Straight Bourbon, Hickory Smoked Corn Whiskey, and the Dutch Style Gin.

Deerhammer American Single Malt Whiskey starts with a 100% malted barley mash that is similar to what porters are made of. The mash gets open-air fermented, double-distilled, then matured for at least 2 years in new charred white oak. It's a complex and rich whiskey that draws from its Scottish and Irish counterparts, yet is wholly unique and American. Its profile is shaped by the high-alpine climate of Buena Vista with its fluctuating daily temperature, which helps maximize the flavor potential of the mash. Bottled at 92 proof, the whiskey has won several prestigious awards.

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.
