Distillery 291 of Colorado Springs, Colorado, won big in New York at the 2020 World Whiskies Awards for its White Dog Colorado Rye Whiskey in the “American New Make Whiskey” category. The whiskey, which is aged in an American white oak barrel for less than two weeks, beat out competition from distilleries around the country.
“To make great aged whiskey you have to make great young whiskey,” says Michael Myers, founder of Distillery 291. “What makes the New Make category so fun is that you get to enjoy the essence of the mash bill right away—you get to really appreciate the distiller’s recipe.”
The winning whiskey, which has also won numerous People’s Choice awards at Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival, as well as previously earning a Jim Murray Liquid Gold, is available for purchase throughout Colorado and the distillery’s Tasting Room.
