291 COLORADO WHISKEY
291 E Colorado Whiskey
Finished with Aspen Wood Staves
Batch #9 – The “Eaves” E
291 Colorado Whiskey has come together with Marianne Eaves as part of her exclusive 2021 Eaves Blind series – a collection of one-of-a-kind whiskey collabs between Eaves and select non-Kentucky distillery partners. Eaves, Kentucky’s first female master distiller, lent her palate to 291 for the 291 “E” Eaves release, one of eight curated single source blended bourbons in the Eaves Blind program. Eaves Blind not only teaches nuances of tasting bourbon and the process of making it, but also highlights the fact that great bourbon can be made anywhere, not just in Kentucky.
64.1% Alc. / 128.2 PROOF
“Marianne’s palate has consistently delivered award-winning whiskey throughout her career,” said 291 Owner and Founding Distiller Michael Myers. “The Eaves’ 291 ‘E’ release is still 291 but just with her balance on it.”
For the inaugural release, Eaves spent weeks with 291 team sampling their Colorado bourbon which is finished with Aspen staves. From there she married her ideal version of 291 Colorado whiskey – the end result was the special 291 “E” Eaves Release, a 129.6 proof bourbon whiskey with a smokey sweet grain and oak, floral and fruit essence. This release carries subtle green vegetal notes balanced by sweetness and dark spice.
“Blending is as much of an art as is distillation,” said Eaves. “I want people to taste this release and know this is Colorado whiskey. This is 291.”
NOTES: Smokey sweet grain and oak, floral and fruit essence, subtle green vegetal notes balanced by sweetness and dark spice.

291 Colorado Whiskey is “Hardmade the Colorado Way”. Today (and since day one), Distillery 291 is distilling, grain to barrel to bottle, distinctive Colorado whiskey. Owner and founding distiller, Michael Myers, a former New York City fashion and beauty photographer, with a love of whiskey and passion for the old west, aims to replicate the taste, smell and folklore of that time, to create a one of a kind, bold and beautiful, Colorado Whiskey. Rugged, Refined, Rebellious.
Utilizing grains from the Colorado plains and water collected from Pikes Peak reservoirs, Myers turned his artist’s eye towards whiskey and hasn’t looked back. Everything matters.
