About Stranahan's Blue Peak Single Malt Whiskey
Bringing together tradition and innovation, Stranahan’s Blue Peak Single Malt Whiskey is an American single malt, distilled at a high altitude. Matured for 4 years in new, 53-gallon American oak casks and Solera finished, the result is a rich and mellow whiskey with warm, toasted notes mingling with fruit and butterscotch. Named after a 13-thousand-foot peak in Aspen, this is a small batch single malt whiskey. Cut to proof with Rocky Mountain water, it's bottled at 86 proof. Enjoy neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.
In 1994, volunteer firefighter Jess Graber was dispatched to fight a small fire at the Stranahan Barn just outside Denver. The owner of the barn — George Stranahan — was the founder and owner of Flying Dog Brewery, and eventually struck up a conversation with Graber once the fire had been eliminated. Together, the two teamed up in order to found Stranahan's Distillery, the first legal distillery in Colorado since Prohibition.
Crafted in the heart of Denver, Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey is a testament to the state's Rocky Mountain roots. The whiskey is made exclusively from Rocky Mountain barley, which is malted before being milled, mashed and fermented at the distillery. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled through a copper pot still before the whiskey is matured in new, charred American oak barrels.
After the whiskey has matured for a minimum of two years (the final whiskey is crafted from a blend of two, three and five year old whiskeys), it is brought to proof with water sourced from the Eldorado spring, situated just outside Boulder, Colorado. Then, each batch is bottled by hand.
