OUR PROCESS

291 whiskey is “Hardmade, the Colorado Way.” From grain to barrel to bottle, we painstakingly craft our whiskey to an unapologetic, full-bodied experience.

Rugged, Refined, Rebellious

Rugged. We start from scratch by milling hundreds of pounds of grain into a corn cooker. Our unique mash is created as sugars are drawn from the grain by water at precise temperatures. With a nod to tradition, our mash is soured in open air fermenters before it is distilled three times in our custom, locally-made pot stills.


Refined. Our whiskey ages in virgin, heavy charred, American white oak barrels and is then brought to a finish on toasted aspen staves, which are harvested from a friend’s nearby land. To keep the proof high, we cut our whiskey slightly with clean Rocky Mountain water. Each bottle is filled, corked, caged, and labeled by hand.

Rebellious. Our unique proprietary process takes the stillage of IPA beer and adds it to the mash. It’s our Colorado twist on the traditional process that incorporates a fraction of the last stillage in each new batch — we call it the El Paso County Process.
