Behind The Barrel - Woody Creek Distillers
Woody Creek Distillers was founded with a simple mission in mind: to pour everything they are into everything they make. In order to turn this goal into a reality, they set out to make nothing but the finest craft spirits.
This standard was set by never using neutral grain spirits or blending with base spirits from other distillers. They grow and harvest most of their own ingredients, like the Rio Grande potatoes used for their premium vodka. However, when they do source ingredients, they only buy from trusted Colorado farms, like the rye in their 100% rye mash whiskey. We’re big fans of this focus on sourcing locally!
One of the elements that makes Woody Creek unique is the special finishing touch they put on all their products. They distill all of their spirits in custom CARL stills. These beautiful machines are a shining copper example of engineering meeting art.
Woody Creek claims these CARL stills turn the Earth’s freshest ingredients into the world’s most treasured spirits. Cheers to that!

Molly's Staff Thoughts - Nic's Pick
“This Bourbon quickly became my everyday sipper. Smooth and mellow with just enough heat. Every sip lends a taste of the Colorado Seasons that it endured.”
