Deerhammer Distilling - Buena Vista, CO


Whitewater Whiskey

It's been called many things... white dog, new make, moonshine. We call ours Deerhammer Whitewater Whiskey. The fresh stuff – straight off the still, briefly touched by oak and then into the bottle. This spirit takes two runs through the pot still and is bottled without the flavor effects of lengthy aging in oak casks. The results are a hearty spirit with notes of chocolate, dark roasted coffee and tobaco finish.

This should not be compared to your go-to bourbon or scotch — it is a completely different product. Much like a tequila has its un-aged blanco, whiskey has it's own un-aged variation, and we are proud to offer you one of Colorado's first and finest white whiskeys. Enjoy it from the bottle around a campfire, served on the rocks or used in place of your favorite vodka in just about any cocktail (this stuff makes a mean moscow mule!).

Down Time Single Malt Whiskey

Down Time Single Malt is a hybrid whiskey with traditions borrowed from both Scotch and Bourbon production. Hand crafted from five varieties of malted barley, open air fermented with American Bourbon yeast and slowly run twice though a Scottish style copper pot still. The spirit is then laid down in new charred American white oak barrels where it slumbers at the base of Colorado's tallest mountains.

Bottled at 88 proof, this American style whiskey sings with notes of sweet coffee, toasted nuts, pipe tobacco, and a dark chocolate finish. Pour yourself a glass and Enjoy some Down Time!

Buena Vista Brandy (Sold Out - More on the way)

This ultra-rare pure colorado brandy was created from grapes grown, fermented, and distilled locally in the Colorado mountains. Buena Vista Brandy packs some serious terroir!

Hand crafted with a traditional approach, Buena Vista Brandy is twice distilled slowly in our direct-fire copper pot still and matured in french oak. The result is a massively rich, full bodied spirit with complex oak aged flavors of vanilla, red wine, honey and spices. This stuff is the perfect Colorado winter warmer.
