BUENA VISTA, CO — Last year, Deerhammer Distilling produced more handcrafted spirits than ever before and experienced record growth in sales, which are up by 262 percent statewide, among other milestones.
Here is Deerhammer Distilling’s 2016 Year In Review
In 2016, Deerhammer distilled 6,217 gallons of whiskey. The majority of this volume represents the distillery’s flagship product Single Malt Whiskey. Deerhammer only distributes its spirits in the state of Colorado.
Last year Deerhammer reinvigorated its package with new glass bottles that have a traditional whiskey shape with sleek curvature. The new label designs are cleaner and bolder, with incorporated visual elements that commemorate why Deerhammer crafts whiskey in Buena Vista— including compass points on each corner to highlight the distillery’s rugged mountain surroundings. Also included in the new design is a small illustration of nearby Mount Princeton, river waves, wind, and diamond trailhead markers. The new labels were designed by Tim Praetzel out of Austin, Texas.
Next month at the Colorado Brewers Guild’s Collaboration Fest, Locavore Beer Works and Aquanaut Brewing will serve a beer that was aged in Deerhammer Single Malt Whiskey barrels. Look for more details about this beer on Deerhammer’s Facebook page.
Next for Deerhammer is the roll out of the Progeny Series, a lineup of small-batch spirits created through inspired partnerships with other crafters in Colorado, including a whiskey and chocolate pairing with Cultura Chocolate, and other collaborations with Wit’s End Brewing Company, Call To Arms Brewing, Crooked Stave, and Colorado Cider Company.
