About Golden Moon Principium Colorado Single Malt Whiskey
Founded in 2008 by Stephen Gould and Karen Knight in Golden, Colorado, the Golden Moon Distillery focuses on hand-crafted spirits and liqueurs. They use the finest spices, botanicals, and herbs, relying on traditional methods. Their studious approach is embodied by the library at the heart of the distillery which contains countless rare books on distilling and everything that goes with it. From modern handbooks to ancient tomes, they are sitting on a wealth of knowledge that they employ in their daily operations. The 4 antique stills are there to put all of that into practice.
The distillery is eco-conscious as well, using locally-sourced produce and recycled materials as well as sending their waste to local farmers to be used as compost, minimizing environmental impact. Golden Moon was named Distillery of the Year by the American Distilling Institute in 2019 and also runs a speakeasy-styled cocktail lounge and tasting room, serving various small bites as well.
The Golden Moon Principium Colorado Single Malt Whiskey was distilled using 100% malted barley, sourced either from Colorado or neighboring states and malted on-site at the Golden Moon Distillery. It has spent at least 6 months in small new American oak casks and is bottled at 92 proof. It won a Gold Medal at the 2019 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

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.
