About Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, Denver
This small batch whiskey distillery, started in 2004, has made a name for itself by being Colorado's first legal modern micro-distillery. It's also famous for only ever using Colorado's natural ingredients - 100% malt barley and water from the Eldorado spring. The bottles usually are signed, and notes mention the music listened to at the time of making. People actually camp outside the distillery twice a year to purchase the limited Snowflake Series. There's a nice story behind the distillery's founding, and you can discover it on the tours. There is a free general public tour that lasts one hour, and a private tour that lasts 2 hours, has a fee, and is only available on certain dates.

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, Denver Reviews - Write a Review
Fantastic whiskeys. They have been very smart in growing their business and brand. Opting for unique twists on their core whiskey over aging. Their tours are thorough and offer great a great look into their whiskey. I'd say the VIP tour is worth is as the tour goes into a little more depth and you try their White Dog and a unreleased Snowflake that is only at their bar.
Let me start by saying the whiskey itself is some of the best whiskey I've ever had. My issue is with opening it. Long story short, we bought the whiskey in Durango on a road trip home to Louisiana. Once home, we attempted to open with no luck. Fast forward three months still no luck. We tried hot water, prying it off, and a blow dryer. We finally had to drill a hole in the top (breaking a drill bit) and pry the lid back to expose the cork. I'm not sure if we would buy another bottle based on opening alone despite how much we liked it.
Tour was great. Max gave great details and had a real cool fun personality. Kept everyone engaged and entertained. Really got into how to properly do a whiskey tasting so you could fully experince the different flavors of the whiskey and the subtle changes when mixed. Product is good. The "Snowflake" is interesting and definitely worth trying if you like to go a little off script. However the highlight of the entire experience was Lucas in the lounge. Welcomed us. Engaged in conversation. Made some amazing suggestions on what to try based on our tastes. We had one non-whiskey drinker in the group so the mixed cocktails were perfect for here. The in house infused choices we awesome. Honey comb was my personally favorite. You could really tell Lucas and Max both truly enjoyed the brand as well as their work. And it comes through in their service. Definitely worth checking out and will most certainly be adding Stranahan to my liquor cabinet.
Did the shorter tour where you get a couple of tastings and a glass included. The tour guide did a great job of explaining the history of the distillery and how they got to where they are. We went to the bar before the tour started and ordered a variety of different cocktails with Stranahan's and they were good. The bartenders were super friendly and explained the drinks and gave a taste of some other experimental goods, like dried apricots soaked in whiskey. I prefer bourbon over what they are calling American single malt, but the tour is worth if you're a fan of whiskey.
Great history with this one time shiner moving into the legal arena. The neat thing about craft brewers and distillers, is they do it for the enjoyment. They still have a story and they treat you like a friend when you visit. This is one of those places, and I highly recommend you stop by if your passing through Denver.
