INDULGE IN OUR STORY
Living the very definition of "craft." We do everything the hard way to turn our mythical local fruits and grains into extraordinary spirits. Because that's what we consider fun. And what makes for a mighty fine drink.INDULGE IN OUR STORY
A lot of folks love to apply the term “craft” to just anything these days, but here in Palisade it’s a way of life. Not in some hip, beard tucked into your ascott way either.
From fruit to glass every spirit we make is hand-crafted right here in Palisade. And not the easy way either.
The way nobody would do it if they didn’t have to. We start with local fruits and grains raised by some of the most devoted growers
on the planet, often upcycling local fruits that some foolishly deem “too ripe” for market. Our Christian Carl still delivers maximum
flavor and high proof in a single distillation, and barrels bring out the unique colors and flavors in each of our spirits.
We could go on for days about how proud we are of our spirits, how much love, grit and moxie goes into each one, but one sip will tell you more than we ever could so we’d say it’s best to start there.
There’s something other-worldly about our little valley town, embraced by its huge mesas and the Colorado river running through the middle. Nestled 4,727 or so feet up in the Colorado high desert, its unique microclimate of brilliant sunny days and cool, star-lit nights cause the fruits and grains that grow here to ripen into pure magic.
It’s so unique in fact, that the fruits here develop an unparalleled concentration of sugars, which works out pretty nicely when you need sugar to create the finest spirits on earth. And when you’re blessed with a bounty of such remarkable ingredients, you dig a little deeper and create flavors other distillers couldn’t dream of.
And if you want to talk local, we’re about as local as it gets. In fact, we can see many of the trees our ingredients grow on from our distillery door.SEE WHERE WE'RE COMING FROM
