Woody Creek Distillers Straight Rye Whiskey
Made from 100% Colorado rye and aged in new American oak barrels, medium toast char #3. Embodies distinct rye character with pronounced white pepper throughout the palate, notes of citrus peel on the nose, and oaky vanilla mid-palate.
Each bottle of our 100% Colorado Rye is crafted in custom CARL stills using locally grown rye from trusted Colorado farms, then gracefully aged a minimum of four years in new American oak.
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.
"When we founded Woody Creek Distillers, our mission was simple: To pour everything we are into everything we make."

Neat or Over Ice
Woody Creek Distillers' whiskies are all about terroir – the flavors of Colorado shine through with every sip. The attention to detail in every step of production – from fermentation, to distillation, to aging and blending – create a vivacious flavor profile that shines all on its own.
Woody Creek makes American spirits, and their whiskies call for an American meal: steak and potatoes, hamburger with French fries, a slice of apple pie. But American cuisine is more than just meat and potatoes – from California cuisine to Southern cooking staples to international influence on American classics, Woody Creek whiskies pair well with the evolving flavors of America.
