From the Andalusia province of Spain, a luscious dessert wine is produced from the shriveled raisins of the Pedro Ximenez (PX) grape. This highly viscous, syrupy, wine is aged in ancient solera barrels for decades before release. We acquired a selection of retired PX barrels from a solera hundreds of years old and filled them with our rich and spicy Bourbon Whiskey. Left to bask in these ripe, fruity vessels, our Whiskey emerged with complex layers of fig compote, orange marmalade, and licorice to complement the sweet oak and vanilla character of our world-renowned Bourbon Whiskey.

Breckenridge Dark Arts: Whiskey Distilled from Malt Mash
Breckenridge Dark Arts: Whiskey Distilled from Malt Mash
A pioneering American Single Malt Whiskey, utilizing dark specialty malts and introducing them into standard malt mash. At the sacrifice of high yields, intentionally overpowering flavors such as over-ripe green apple, cacao, and chocolate dazzle the palate. We pushed the malt to the boundaries, purposefully off-balancing the undertones of bitter orange peel, angular oak, caramel, and green coffee cherries. Delightfully finishing with subtle essences of seaweed and sea salt. Up to ten years in a combination of new American oak and used bourbon casks has developed a singular and satisfying whiskey experience.
The Dark Arts Malt Mash has long been considered a fan favorite – an American “Scotch” without the title. This un-peated whiskey is now blended with a peated Scotch out of the Highlands of Scotland, giving this spirit a complexity that fans will have to taste to believe. The structure for 2 Clans is the Dark Arts American Single Malt Whiskey, which is the reason Bryan Nolt founded the distillery–specifically to make the Dark Arts. The Dark Arts is a cult whiskey, massive, malty, and chocolatey. The plan was always to use that structure and layer in subtle, traditional Scotch notes into a portfolio of whiskeys, and 2 Clans is the first release in this project.

The tasting adventure follows through to a robust dark chocolate, finally finishing with a lingering vanilla and molasses.

Colorado’s Western Slope produces some of our Nation’s finest fruits, and we’re always looking forward to the summer harvest.
