Wood's High Mountain Distillery


Recommended Posts

One year ago we started the remodel on the building that was to become our distillery, today I delivered our first cases of Gin to be sold at retail!

I wanted to welcome all the distillers and those thinking about distilling to Colorado! It has been great to meet so many of you and show you around the shop. I'm looking forward to having a dram with the rest of you over the next few days!

Hi P.T. I've not posted before but I'm setting up in central NM along the Rio Grande this year. Will be driving back next Sunday from the 3 day hands-on training at Breckenridge and wondered if you might be open then for a visit? I've been following your threads online and like what I see. I'll be at the conference starting later today and hope to at least meet there.

Best,

Greg

I hope you all got out to the Colorado Distillers Guild event Dstill. It was pretty awesome to get to pour in the same room as so many brilliant Distillers from around the country. This sign out side the event pretty much sums it up!

If you find yourself in Salida this weekend for the Colorado Brewers Rendezvous be sure to stop by the Amicas tent and try out the Gin Basket Wit made with our spent gin botanicals and aged in one of our Rested Gin Barrels!

Cheers,

It has been a super busy summer so far, the tasting room has been amazing and the wholesale business continues to grow exponentially! We hope you are also crushing it!

I finally had to buy some barrel racks!

We sponsored the Brewers Rendezvous, because really beer is almost whiskey!

Yes Salida can be a bit weird in the summer...

Hope you are finding time to enjoy the fruits of your labor and reflect on how awesome it is to be a distiller!

Howdy,

I am sitting here getting the tasting room ready for the http://www.usaprocyclingchallenge.com/ which will be doing 2 laps less than a block from the distillery!

I just filled our first 53 gallon barrel as we start a long slow transition from 25's!

Events keep stacking up, some good, some bad. I'm still trying to figure that out, anyone got a winning formula? We did Jazz Fest In Telluride which was awesome and got us a bunch of new accounts!

Today our friend Butch broke out his drone and got a few unique photos of the distillery while he charged his Tesla!

Hope summer is treating you well and your whiskey is flowing!

How about a little Monday photo diversion...

I was lucky enough to get out on the river some over the last month,

Pearl checking out...

The Bald Eagle that picked this fish out of the river right next to us!

I went to Paonia and picked some fresh organic cascade hops a few weeks ago for a couple of fun projects that I am working on!

OSHA approved?

We finally got to the point where self distribution was to much so this month we officially have a Colorado Distributor!
