Proof66 Notes

Peach Street Distillers is a micro-distillery in Colorado created om 2005 by three friends (Rory Donovan, Dave Thibodeau, and Bill Graham) who claim to have founded in Colorado in order take advantage of the local fresh fruit. They believe the elevation and sunlight creates a "special concentration of sugars" in the fruit.

Peach Street Distillers produces Colorado Straight Bourbon in limited editions of 100 bottles. They declare it the "first legal bourbon ever made in Colorado." Currently (February 2009) they claim only 200 bottles of this whiskey are available and only at their own distillery. They claim it is a light bourbon (which makes sense given it's relatively young age) and each bottle is hand-numbered and dipped in wax for a seal.

Special note: a "bourbon" whiskey need not be made in Kentucky--though most are--and can be made anywhere in the United States (among other requirements involving barrels and the use of corn). The "straight" in the name refers to the minimum aging requirement of 2 years... which qualifies this whiskey as a "Colorado Straight Bourbon Whiskey" as opposed to a "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey."
