Stranahan’s grows, moves, brews, grooves…May 6th, 2009
Stranahan’s, the maker’s of straight Rocky Mountain whisky, has outgrown its existing location and is moving to a larger one where they’ll be able to add more distilling equipment and make their own wash (distiller’s beer). The current distillery is closing today.
Here’s the press release, which is being sent to the masses tomorrow. You’re getting it here on WDJK one day early.
DENVER – Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey™, a distinctive small-batch whiskey cultivated in Colorado’s first-ever micro-distillery, has outgrown its current facility and will move to a larger facility at 200 South Kalamath Street in Denver on May 6th.
The new, larger micro-distilling facility will enable Stranahan’s to better meet increasing demand by adding distilling equipment and increasing production. In addition, Stranahan’s will now be able to produce its own proprietary distiller’s wash, or mash, which was formerly supplied by Oskar Blues in Lyons, Colo. This special four-barley fermented wash is part of what gives the Stranahan’s recipe its distinctive flavor.
“This move marks a new chapter for Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey,” said founder Jess Graber. “We’re thrilled that the demand for our small-batch whiskey has increased to the point where we need a larger facility.”
We wish the good folks at Stranahan’s all the best in their new location. And keep on making good, interesting whisky.
