One of Colorado’s first legal whiskies since Prohibition.

We felt it was time Colorado was better known for its contribution to the whiskey maker’s trade.

Whiskey has been made here in the high country for at least 200 years. The only problem was, not a drop of it was legal.

It was always made in small batches, for personal consumption and sharing with friends. And it was so good, someone always made more.

We at Stranahan’s found that pretty inspirational.

So we set out to make our own Colorado small batch whiskey. And we mean small batch. (We distill about six barrels a week.) When it’s time to bottle some – the whiskey tells us when -- we select two to six of our choicest mature barrels and combine them to yield a small batch with a reliable, yet distinctive taste unlike anything else out there.

Not a bourbon. Not a scotch. Not a Canadian.

Stranahan’s is a straight Rocky Mountain whiskey. The recipe for our mash is different. The way we distill it is different. And yet, drinkers of single barrel bourbons, and single malt scotch aficionados, all seem to find something to like in our handcrafted product.

Everything in our process is designed to create the highest quality whiskey possible. Please visit our website, or better yet, come by the distillery for a free tour and a taste, and we’ll show you how we make the Rockies finest whiskey.

  • Took a tour at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey and finished it off in the bar by trying the snowflake whiskey the tour guide recommended. The tour was super interesting and provided 3 shots of whiskey tasting with a super cute (no fall over) take home shot glass they were able to box up for us. The tour took a little longer than an hour, but we sat and chatted with the locals in the bar for an hour after that as well. Everyone there is extremely welcoming and we loved it! Hope we can find this whiskey in our home town :)
  • Whiskey is very good. Tour was a great time. The only suggestion I have is to add a photo option.. Similar to splash mountain. So you can see the look on your face the first time you taste their whiskey.
