Woody Creek Distillers Bourbon Review

Help Support This Website
Woody Creek Distillers was founded in 2012. Located in Basalt, Colorado, 15 miles west of Aspen, they produce their whiskeys from locally sourced grains. In fact, they grow the potatoes that they use in their vodka and as a base for their gin themselves! I am enjoying this bourbon. While it is on the lighter side, it still has full flavors. There's a noticeable sweetness, and some youthfulness, but they work together well. In addition, the bit of spice in the finish offers a nice contrast to those earlier flavors.

“Colorado Straight Bourbon gracefully aged in new American oak and blended with Rocky Mountain spring water”

Founded in 2012 in Basalt, Colorado

Woody Creek Distillers was founded in 2012. Located in Basalt, Colorado, 15 miles west of Aspen, they produce their whiskeys from locally sourced grains. In fact, they grow the potatoes that they use in their vodka and as a base for their gin, themselves!

I have seen their spirits on store shelves and was curious about them. Consequently, while I was on a recent trip to Colorado, I picked up a bottle of their bourbon.

Mash Bill

Woody Creek Distillers Colorado Bourbon starts with a mash bill of locally grown 70% corn, 15% rye & 15% (presumably malted) barley. Subsequently, the bourbon aged in #3 char American white oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years.

Summary

I am enjoying this bourbon. While it is on the lighter side, it still has full flavors. There’s a noticeable honey sweetness, and some youthfulness, but they work together well. In addition, the bit of spice in the finish offers a nice contrast to those earlier flavors.
