Distiller’s Reserve Whiskey Series

Release #1: Distiller’s Reserve Alpine Rye Whiskey

The Distiller’s Reserve label is given to only our most exceptional barrels. In this case, we have two barrels that have earned the label of Distiller’s Reserve. Both feature our standard rye mashbill and aged 6 & 7 years, respectively. These barrels are both incredible on their own but we decided to blend them for a really mind blowing whiskey.

  • Very Limited! Only 375 bottles were made and it is currently only available at the tasting room in Salida.

Additionally, this release is special because these are the last two barrels of whiskey we have that were distilled on our antique German pot-still Ashley (which graces each label).

This release of Distiller’s Reserve shows gentler, incredibly integrated rye whiskey that beautifully melds the flavor profile our traditional Alpine Rye of smoky rye spice, cinnamon, caramel, orange peel, coffee, and chocolate – just heightened. Aged in a combination of 6 and 7 year old new #3-char American oak barrels. Distilled and aged in our distillery at over 7000′ in Salida, Colorado from grains sourced in the San Luis Valley and bottled at 101 proof.
