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 that 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.
Stranahan’s Sherry Cask is our latest innovation & expression in single malt. We take our four-year-old Rocky Mountain Single Malt and then transfer it to 500-liter Oloroso Sherry Barrels to cask finish. Procured from the Andalusia region of southern Spain, these sherry barrels have been aging wine for over 40 years, leaving a depth of flavor soaked into the ancient oak staves.
