The first (legal) whiskey to come out of Colorado, Stranahan's® is one of the rarest and most sought after American spirits. Their whiskey is completely unique – made of 100% Rocky Mountain malted barley and aged in new white American Oak barrels, it's essentially a hybrid of Scotch and Bourbon with a Colorado soul. Each batch of Stranahan's® has its own unique character, and many batches have already been awarded ”liquid gold” status from Jim Murray's celebrated Whiskey Bible. Each bottle has a handwritten label with comments from the distilling team on what they are doing during the production process, and every batch is hand-bottled by a team of local whiskey-loving volunteers. The origins of this whiskey are equally impressive – in 2004 volunteer firefighter Jess Graber was called to a neighbor's barn fire down the road. That barn belonged to George Stranahan, long-time liquor connoisseur and founder of Flying Dog Brewery. Unable to save the burning barn, the two sat around the smoldering ashes and started talking. They discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a good pour of fine whiskey. Soon afterwards they developed a recipe for the smooth, flavorful and unique whiskey that is Stranahan's®, and the rest is delicious history.
