Boulder Spirits Peated Colorado Single Malt Whiskey
Smoke from the Rockies
We hand-selected this cask from Boulder Spirits in Colorado. The distillery was founded by Scotsman Alastair Brogan, who has brought Scottish whisky making traditions to the high peaks of the Colorado Rockies. This dry, high-elevation environment makes for bold and unique spirits.
We love heavily peated single malt, and this cask is one of the finest we’ve found in the United States. Made from 100% peated Scottish barley, this cask was aged for 5 years in a new oak cask. It is very smoky, with flavors of smoked figs, bacon-wrapped dates, bitter orange marmalade, and fresh-baked brownies.
Note: The high altitude of the Rockies also tends to result in high-proof spirits. This whiskey was bottled at its natural cask strength of 148.94 proof. At this proof, the whiskey should not be taken on aircraft and should ideally be stored upright and, as always, enjoyed responsibly.

About Boulder Spirits / Vapor Distillery
Boulder Spirits (also known as Vapor Distillery) was founded by Scotsman Alastair Brogan, who has brought Scottish whiskymaking traditions to the Colorado Rockies. Using an authentic Scottish Forsyths copper pot still, Boulder makes American single malt (peated and unpeated) as well as bourbon in this dry, high-elevation environment. The rapid evaporation in the high mountain climate makes for bold and powerful spirits. Colorado is one of the hotbeds of the American whiskey renaissance, and Boulder truly stands out for intermingling the region’s unique climate and pioneer culture with Old World single malt traditions.
