Woody Creek Distillery, Basalt

Woody Creek Distillers philosophy for every spirit it distills is as follows: To make a spirit of genuine integrity, true to its essence, and unique in its taste and character. Hand-picked, hand-crafted, hand-bottled, Woody Creek Distillers (WCD) has total control over every element of vodka production from farm to bottle. WCD grows its own potatoes at Scanlan Family Farm in Woody Creek, Colo. (as well as other farms in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley), specifically for vodka and gin production, and sources mountain spring water locally to produce its ultra-premium American spirits. Each small batch is made at its 10,000-square-foot, distillery in Basalt, Colorado using custom Carl stills. Woody Creek Distillers was founded in 2012 by owners Mary and Pat Scanlan and Mark Kleckner. Purchase here: http://www.woodycreekdistillers.com/find-it/

  • Of all the distilleries I’ve been to (approx 70) I have yet to find one that tops Woody Creek. The impromptu tours they are happy to give, the craft cocktails made to order, and their the AMAZING spirits. I’d be remiss not to give their staff well deserved accolades. They are knowledgeable, welcoming, and never pretentious. There is no shortage of passion in their pours and love of their product. A special praise “shout out” to Christian. He remembered us from a year ago! His generosity to listen to our stories and share his, was equally as good as their product. If you want to go in for a flight, a tour, some swag, fantastic conversation, or just to relax, you can have all of that here. To say their selection is diverse and always satisfying, is an understatement. Side bar: some of their spirits are only sold here. I highly recommend buying a bottle that is straight from the source. The whiskey is smooth and if you enjoy a good rye, their rye isn’t good, it’s so great it should be banned. I’d drive here from Denver every weekend if I could. If this review sounds a bit over the top, it’s because it’s should be.
  • Best whiskey I have ever had. Would reccomend to anyone.
  • Haven't been to the distillery yet however, the spirits are absolutely awesome. Great tasting and smooth. That whiskey is my favorite! Get it to Atlanta.
  • Great drinks and a great atmosphere are always found here. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable to help you find a great drink. Food Truck Friday during the summer is always a fun night.
  • Amazing bar tenders who know exactly what they are doing. Christen can make a mean cocktail.
