Gun Fighter Double Cask Rye Whiskey
About Gun Fighter Double Cask Rye WhiskeyFounded 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.
Their Gun Fighter Double Cask American Rye is crafted from a mash bill of 60% rye, 34% corn, and 6% malt. It then spends a minimum of 6 months in new American oak barrels before being finished in French port casks. Bottled at 100 proof, it's smooth, complex, and creamy.

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.
By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
