For owner Bryan Nolt, finding the best distiller possible for Breckenridge meant going back to school. While taking a class at the American Distilling Institute, Bryan met master distiller Jordan Via. Jordan is well known amongst the artisanal distilling community as the distilling instructor at the Institute, he’s trained most of them. At Breckenridge, Jordan applies a purist, traditional approach to distillation. His handcrafted, small-batch spirits are made using a Vendome custom copper pot still and premium ingredients no shortcuts or additives are allowed. Jordan attributes the unique taste profile of Breckenridge to the water. The distillery, situated at 9,600 feet above sea level, is the highest in the world. Massive snow fall and the glaciers atop Mt. Quandary, a 14,000 foot peak, provide pristine water with a unique ph balance which lends a distinctive flavor and texture. Says Jordan, “You just can’t underestimate the importance of the water in any spirit…it accounts for greater than half the volume. To maintain its integrity, the water is not filtered for the vodka and only slightly filtered for the whiskey.
A deep amber, aromas of under-ripe bananas and notes of white pepper and toasted sesame precede a balanced, nimble mid-palate. The finish ends with a touch of bitterness and undertones of vanilla and honey.
