Gun Fighter Double Cask Bourbon Whiskey
The Double Cask Gun Fighter American Bourbon in their
lineup spends a minimum of 6 months in new American oak barrels before being
finished in French port barrels. It is bottled at 100 proof and features a
well-balanced yet unique port-forward profile.
Founded in 2008 by Stephen Gould and Karen Knight in
Golden, Colorado, the Golden Moon Distillery focuses on hand-crafted spirits
and liqueurs. They use the finest spices, botanicals, and herbs, relying on
traditional methods. Their studious approach is embodied by the library at the
heart of the distillery which contains countless rare books on distilling and
everything that goes with it. From modern handbooks to ancient tomes, they are
sitting on a wealth of knowledge that they employ in their daily operations.
The 4 antique stills are there to put all of that into practice.
The distillery is eco-conscious as well, using
locally-sourced produce and recycled materials as well as sending their waste
to local farmers to be used as compost, minimizing environmental impact. Golden
Moon was named Distillery of the Year by the American Distilling Institute in
2019 and also runs a speakeasy-styled cocktail lounge and tasting room, serving
various small bites as well.
