Red River Brewing Co. & Distillery of Red River, New Mexico, is excited to announce the grand opening of its tasting room at 619 E. Main St. The Red River Distillery Tasting Room is open daily from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and offers a variety of craft cocktails, a bottle shop, and gifts for visitors to enjoy.
“We’ve created a cozy and inviting space where customers can sample our award-winning line-up of craft spirits made right here in Red River, including Vodka, Gin, Whiskey, Rum, Bourbon, Rye Whiskey and Sotol,” says Sharon Calhoun, owner and operations manager at Red River Brewing Co. & Distillery. Customers can sample any of the spirits made at the distillery, located in the same building, and purchase bottles of their favorites to take home or as gifts for their friends and family. “We are proud to open our tasting room and invite everyone to come and taste our products. We hope to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience for our customers and become a destination for locals and tourists alike.”
Red River Distillery’s master distiller, Gavin Whealy, said he is thrilled to share his passion for craft spirits with the community. “We’re one of the highest elevation distilleries in the world. The low atmospheric pressure up here means we distill at relatively low temperatures which makes for very smooth and mellow flavor profiles. Plus, as everyone knows, the Red River water we use is really, really good.”
The distillery has won many awards and accolades for its products, including double-gold and gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Ascot Awards, San Diego International Wine and Spirits Challenge, Los Angeles International Spirits Competition, SIP International Consumer Siping Awards, The Fifty Best, and many others.
