Woody Creek Distillers is a grain to glass distillery founded in 2012 by Mary and Pat Scanlan and Mark Kleckner in the town of Basalt in the Roaring Fork Valley near Aspen, Colorado. After years pursuing their own careers, these three longtime friends came together to create a line of spirits whose quality is a lasting legacy for their community, families and friends. Woody Creek Distillers is proud to use produce grown on their family farm and the farms of their neighbors. The distillery is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the natural resources of the Woody Creek region. Understanding that growing and sourcing produce locally not only makes for the best ingredients, but is also good for the environment, all grains for their whiskeys are sourced locally in Colorado, and 100% of the potatoes that go into their vodka and the base spirit of their gin are grown on their own farm in Basalt. The distillery itself is a low-emissions facility, and the waste from their raw products goes back to the Scanlan family farm in Woody Creek as compost, or to local ranches as livestock feed. A proud winner of Best Farm Distillery from the American Distilling Institute in 2019.
