Golden Moon Distillery Announces Plans to Sell

Golden Moon Distillery owner and master distiller Stephen Gould has announced plans to sell the promising distillery located in Golden, Colorado. The award-winning distillery will be offered fully equipped including the intellectual property, WIP, finished product and transferrable licensing.   

Golden Moon produces award-winning American single malt whiskeys, other whiskies, gin, and other spirits from its Colorado production location, and distributes to 14 states as well as internationally. Golden Moon’s American single malts have all won gold or double-gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Golden Moon’s award-winning tasting room, Golden Moon Speakeasy, is offered as part of the sale. The Speakeasy has received numerous accolades including being named as the Best Classic Cocktail Bar in Denver in 2015 and the Gin Bar of the Year (a global award by Icons of Gin / Gin Magazine) in 2021.

“This is a great opportunity for parties interested in continuing to build an established and proven family of whiskey and spirits brands,” said Eric Weiler, principal of New Mill Capital. “Stephen defines master distiller and the awards he and the Golden Moon team have received are the proof. Stephen is willing to transition, consult and potentially remain on board as the master distiller, which is an incredible advantage for an operator looking to advance in the whiskey and spirits market.” 

The distillery has substantial infrastructure in place for continued operations, revenue growth and is in the heart of the craft beverage world in Colorado. Golden Moon is 15-minutes from downtown Denver.

“I have poured so much effort into this project over the last 15 years and want to see Golden Moon Distillery and its brands grow to their potential,” said Gould. “We faced challenges during covid as everyone has in the beverage world, but we emerged even stronger. The reality is that Golden Moon Distillery needs more horsepower to scale and utilize what we’ve already built to reach the company’s full potential. There’s only so much I can do alone as a master distiller and business operator. We have a great runway waiting for someone with a passion for the distillery business and I’m committed to supporting the venture going forward in any way I can.” 

Interested parties may contact Eric Weiler at 312-515-0253 or for more information.
