291 COLORADO WHISKEY
291 Straight Colorado Rye Whiskey Barrel Proof
Finished with Aspen Wood Staves
291 Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey
Loads of rich caramel and toffee up front on the nose. Leather and pipe tobacco add an earthiness, while cinnamon and clove balance it out with some spice. Hints of toasted oak and aspen round out the nose. The palate is viscous, with the clove, toffee, tobacco, and toasted oak at the forefront. There is a warming black pepper note with the return of the caramel for the long, pleasant finish. This is an assertive and spice forward rye, and yet somehow, at the same, a soft and sweet rye.
*Special Releases available for pre-order 6/12, orders will ship within 2 weeks*

“This year, these two special releases are a tribute to the two young men that do me the honor of calling me Dad,” said Michael Myers, owner and founding distiller of 291. “Our Father’s Day releases are always meaningful to us, and these straight whiskeys are a great way to commemorate the day and to acknowledge that we all get better as we get older.”

Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible
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.
Distillery 291 is an award winning, small batch whiskey distillery nestled in the stunning foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the distillery sits in the shadow of Pikes Peak where 291 Colorado Whiskey has earned bushels of national and international awards for its spirits with the unique character and ﬂavor of a bygone era.
Named World’s Best Rye-2018 by World Whiskies Awards, 9 Liquid Golds from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and 2-time US Micro-Whiskey of the Year (Runner-up 2020, 2018), multiple Double-Gold in San Francisco World Spirits Competition, nods from IWSC and Spirits Business Journal…
291 Colorado Whiskey embodies traditions of the past married with the boldness of the future. That said, what will always deﬁne Distillery 291 is its spirit, passion permeates every sip.
