How it all began

Born of fire

& Friendship

When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor's barn fire down the road, he never imagined what would come of it.

Born of fire

& Friendship

When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor's barn fire down the road, he never imagined what would come of it.

FROM EACH BAD THING COMES SOMETHING GOOD

The barn Jess made an effort to save belonged to Woody Creek local George Stranahan, a long-time brewery owner and whiskey connoisseur. The two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a proper pour of fine whiskey.

From this relationship Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey was born.

The two developed a recipe for a distinctively smooth and flavorful American single malt whiskey using their mountain surroundings to their advantage.

The Process

Hand-crafted

in small batches

The beauty of hand-producing each batch of our single malt whiskey from barley to bottle, is that we have our fingerprints on the process every step of the way. Using only the finest resources, our whiskey is made from 4 ingredients: 100% malted barley, yeast, Rocky Mountain water and time in the barrel. The barrels are then hand-selected by our Master Distiller, ensuring that every batch of Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey is of the highest quality and distinction.

Master distiller

The steward

of a good pour

Our Master Distiller, Rob Dietrich, knows a thing or two about whiskey. Just knowing that a whiskey is good isn't enough--a good distiller has to know why. Utilizing years of skill & practice, Rob prides himself on maintaining the highest standards for each hand-crafted batch, and embodying the true spirit of Colorado in every bottle.
