Stranahanâ€™sÂ® Colorado Whiskey Distillery Opens General Store
DENVER, CO â€“ Stranahanâ€™sÂ® Colorado Whiskey, the distinctive small-batch whiskey distilled in Coloradoâ€™s first-ever micro-distillery, recently opened a new General Store and Tasting Room. Inside the store, located on site at the distillery at 200 S. Kalamath Street in Denver, Colo., shoppers can find a variety of Stranahanâ€™s-branded items alongside bottles of Coloradoâ€™s first whiskey. Those unable to visit the Western-motif store in person can shop online at http://www.stranahans.com
Just a wall of windows separates General Store guests from the distillery â€“ the whiskey sold onsite doesnâ€™t get any closer to the source. In addition to bottles of the latest batch, the store sells Stranahanâ€™s branded apparel, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets; baseball hats and winter hats; artwork; tasting glasses and even Stranahanâ€™s-engraved flasks and tin cups, fashioned in a true pioneer spirit. Beyond shopping and tasting Stranahanâ€™s Colorado Whiskey, guests can enjoy the distinctly Colorado dĂ©cor â€“ a barn wood and whiskey barrel bar with tractor-seat bar stools â€“ while perusing nostalgic photos and antiques. There is even a Stranahanâ€™s barrel bull that guests can saddle up onto for a souvenir photo opportunity.
â€śWhiskey aficionados as well as those who have never had a sip have been really excited with the new shopping and tasting experience,â€ť said Stranahanâ€™s general manager Pete Macca. â€śThe ambience inside the store recreates a feel of the old West, where many people like to think whiskey was born.â€ť
Stranahanâ€™s General Store is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from noon to 5 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m. by appointment; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The store is closed on Sundays; December 25 and 27; and January 1. Stranahanâ€™s Colorado Whiskey is available throughout Colorado at major retailers, bars and restaurants.
