Hello Stranahan’s Guests,
In response to the evolving situation concerning COVID-19, we want to let you know that all of us at Stranahan’s take our role in preventing the spread of this virus very seriously and we want to inform you of the measures we are taking to ensure that we continue to produce a safe product and create a safe guest experience at our distillery in Denver, CO.
For starters, the production of our products include many sanitary steps already, all of which have been heightened, and all of which eradicate all potentially harmful pathogens to ensure a safe product. That said, we are still taking precautions to ensure that we do not contribute to the spread of the virus and to ensure that our products are produced to the highest possible standards of safety.
With that said, our Distillery Lounge and Tour Program are temporarily being closed to the public due to Colorado state mandates. Regarding all upcoming public distillery experiences, they have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. We will assess the situation in the coming days and weeks and reevaluate during this time to keep you updated on when we plan to open back up to the public.
If you have an experience booked during this time frame, you will be receiving a cancellation email one week in advance of the booking, with the offer to either reschedule or receive a full refund minus our booking platform’s service fees.
We can assure you that you can continue to place your trust in us and that we are committed to your safety. We appreciate your ongoing support!
