WOOD’S HIGH DISTILLERY
Wood's High, or at least the idea of it, was born in the Grand Canyon when PT Wood's rafting companion brought more than two dozen whiskeys for them to try. Like every craft distiller, PT wants to make great spirits, but he also wants spirits that are distinctly Wood's High products. PT says he respects tradition but he wants to learn, not copy. Currently producing eight (or so) spirits, the Mountain Hopped Gin is an interesting one. Using fresh cascade hops, it is both an homage to Colorado's brewing history and a new take on a old classic. Another unique spirit is the fleur de sureau, an elderflower liqueur made with Colorado grapes and infused with local elderflower and sweetened with local honey. A San Luis Potato Vodka and a single barrel Sawatch Whiskey are on the horizon. Currently producing just 1,800 cases annually, current upgrades mean that the distillery will start churning out up to 15,000 cases annually in the near future.
