291 Colorado Whiskey Celebrates Father’s Day with ‘Good Guy’

Distillery 291 of Colorado Springs, Colorado, is thrilled to announce the newest addition to its unconventional and exciting whiskey lineup–291 Good Guy Colorado 4-Grain Rye Whiskey. Showcasing the continued efforts to expand the boundaries of American whiskey, the Good Guy is a four-grain, wheated rye whiskey. Conceived as an innovative counterpart to the acclaimed Bad Guy Bourbon, the Good Guy Rye flips the mash bill of the Bad Guy on its head, swapping the percentages of rye and corn to produce a wholly distinctive expression of rye whiskey, carefully distilled from a mash of malted rye, malted wheat, corn, and malted barley.

Michael Myers, founding distiller, shares, “Crafting the 291 Good Guy Colorado 4-Grain Rye Whiskey has been an incredibly rewarding journey for us at Distillery 291. As a father of two sons, this release holds a special place in my heart. It embodies our innovative spirit and reflects the values I hope to pass on to my children—creativity, dedication and the joy of sharing special moments. This Father’s Day, I am excited to share this unique whiskey with fellow dads and whiskey enthusiasts.”

“Possibly the most unique whiskey we’ve made to date, it is certainly one of our favorites here at Distillery 291” adds head distiller, Eric Jett. Exhibiting a refined balance of flavors, it embodies a harmonious interplay of spice and sweetness, with a character that is both bold and inviting. Like its four-grain bourbon predecessor, 291 Good Guy Colorado 4-Grain Rye is bottled at barrel proof, ensuring an authentic and unadulterated sipping experience.
