BORN OF FIRE & FRIENDSHIP When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor’s barn fire down the road, he never imagined what would come of it. FROM EACH BAD THING COMES SOMETHING GOOD The barn Jess made an effort to save belonged to Woody Creek local George Stranahan, a long-time brewery owner and whiskey connoisseur. The two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a proper pour of fine whiskey. From this relationship Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey was born. The two developed a recipe for a distinctively smooth and flavorful American single malt whiskey using their mountain surroundings to their advantage.
