Colorado is continuing to prove itself to be one of the major stomping grounds for craft whiskey. Our guest on this podcast, Michael Myers from Distillery 291, not only set up shop in the state, but has gone the extra mile incorporate flavors that that are distinctly Colorado. He joins his distributor, Philip Rawleigh, and Pedro to explain how he does it (and why he put photo prints inside of his still.)
From the Distillery 291 website:
Distillery 291 is a small batch whiskey distillery nestled in the stunning foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Located in Colorado Springs, the distillery sits in the shadows of Cheyenne Mountain and the majestic Pikes Peak which both serve as constant reminders of the founding vision of owner and distiller, Michael Myers, who aims to replicate the taste, smell and folklore of the Wild West — to make whiskey with the character of that unforgettable era.
