Breckenridge Distillery Releases Batch 1 of Powder Hound Whiskey
The Powder Hound is an exceptional, top of the line bourbon. Released in batches, batch 1-3 was a blend of bourbons from the oldest barrels in our library. On our first release of the Powder Hound, we weren’t sure if there would ever be another. This Nov., we are excited to be releasing Batch 4. And, we will say it again, Powder Hound is so special and unique that it may not come around again for some time or at all.
Batch 4 brings a very special Distiller’s Blend inspired from our Head Distiller Hans Stafsholt. It exemplifies what Hans looks for in a blend and allows us to continue to donate to a worthy cause.
Its name comes from our love for dogs but shares meaning with the reason we all live here, Colorado powder days. From the most epic powder days with deep fluffy turns to catching a snowflake on our tongues, the Distillery is constantly inspired by our backyard and the great outdoors. We share this desire to explore with man’s best friend. If you’ve visited our offices at the Distillery, you know that dogs sometimes outnumber our employees.
For a Cause-
To align our support of our dog community in Breckenridge, we’re teaming up with the Frisco Animal Shelter again for Batch 4 to donate $5 from each bottle sale to the shelter. These funds are used to treat animals so they can be ready for a fresh start and new home. This past summer, we were proud to present a check from Batches 1-3 sales for $7,315. Thank you to all that helped support our community shelter.
NOSE: Dried orange peel, butterscotch, carmel, pleasant ethereal notes.
PALATE/TASTE: Thick caramel on the tongue followed by dominant white pepper, candied orange, and holiday spices, carrying through a soft, clean finish.
