One of Colorado’s first legal whiskies since Prohibition.

We felt it was time Colorado was better known for its contribution to the whiskey maker’s trade.

Whiskey has been made here in the high country for at least 200 years. The only problem was, not a drop of it was legal.

It was always made in small batches, for personal consumption and sharing with friends. And it was so good, someone always made more.

We at Stranahan’s found that pretty inspirational.

So we set out to make our own Colorado small batch whiskey. And we mean small batch. (We distill about six barrels a week.) When it’s time to bottle some – the whiskey tells us when -- we select two to six of our choicest mature barrels and combine them to yield a small batch with a reliable, yet distinctive taste unlike anything else out there.

Not a bourbon. Not a scotch. Not a Canadian.

Stranahan’s is a straight Rocky Mountain whiskey. The recipe for our mash is different. The way we distill it is different. And yet, drinkers of single barrel bourbons, and single malt scotch aficionados, all seem to find something to like in our handcrafted product.

Everything in our process is designed to create the highest quality whiskey possible. Please visit our website www.stranahans.com, or better yet, come by the distillery for a free tour and a taste, and we’ll show you how we make the Rockies finest whiskey.

  • My husband and I went on the tour on a whim while we were in Denver for our 7 year anniversary and it’s gotta be our favorite memory from the trip. Every time we go to Denver from now on, Stranahan’s will be a staple stop. The tour was awesome and the staff was even better and the whiskey was delicious. The vibe of the distillery was rustic, mountain-y (I made that word up 🙃) and industrial, all my favorite vibes. We went back the next day before a concert at red rocks to have a couple cocktails and exchange some merch. The bartender, Steve was awesome and down to earth. Kelsey was a great tour guide as well. Highly recommend!
  • This was the focal point of our trip, as we came to Denver to choose a barrel of Whiskey for our restaurant company to serve at our stores. First, we had a general tour of the facility and then had a private tasting where we chose our favorite barrel. It was an awesome experience learning about the process of whiskey being made and getting to taste their different products. The staff was friendly and helpful in explaining everything. Stranahans is really fun and creative, such as aging whiskey in a tequila cask ( which is incredible).
