Leopold Bros. American Small Batch Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Leopold Bros. American Small Batch Whiskey

Situated in an industrial complex on the outskirts of Denver, Leopold Bros. Distillery is the brainchild of Todd Leopold. After receiving his diploma in Malting and Brewing from the Siebel Institute in Chicago, Todd moved to Germany and began working at the Doemens School of Brewers and Maltsters in Munich. Then, he apprenticed at four different breweries and distilleries in Germany, before moving to Kentucky to study distilling. In 2008, Todd, along with his brother Scott, moved back to his parents home in Littleton, Colorado and opened the doors to Leopold Bros. Distillery.Together, the Leopold Brothers attempt to marry chemistry with poetry and its working.Leopold Bros. American Small Batch Whiskey is made using a traditional sour mash, which is distilled for an entire day in order to extract the full, round flavors of the locally-sourced corn and rye. After distilling the whiskey twice, Todd brings it to 86 proof before barreling it in charred, American oak barrels. By proofing the whiskey prior to barreling it, Leopold is able to ensure that more of the whiskey comes into contact with the barrel, giving it smoother and more robust notes of brown sugar and molasses.After aging, each batch of Leopold Bros. Whiskey a batch produces only about 240 bottles is bottled by hand with a label indicating the barrel number from which it came."Boy, I had some hand problems at the end of last year," Todd says, "but it lets people understand that this really is a craft. Its something that hasnt come off an assembly line; its very much small batch. Its something special."Try this special whiskey today!
