Local Source, Local Love
When some places tell you they buy local, they mean they get all their produce from within a 100-mile radius. Or a 200-mile radius. Or from this side of whatever side of the ocean they happen to be on. And then some others don’t even mention any specifics at all, which we can only assume means that their idea of ‘local’ is somewhere inside the Milky Way.
Well, when Peach Street Distillers says local, they mean their stuff gets carted over each morning on a forklift. They say it’s a nice forklift – bright yellow, with a top speed of about 2mph. Which is about as fast as they would want it to go, because flavors like these cannot be hurried.
Did you know the freshest, sweetest fruit in the world comes straight from the Colorado High Country? And Peach Street Distillers have no problem whatsoever taking advantage of this sweet factoid.
They are straight outta Palisade, CO – elevation 4727, give or take. They are surrounded by mountains and are in what’s known as the high desert. They get play their passion daily in their own little micro-climate, with cool nights and intense sun light during the day. So intense, in fact, the fruit that ripens here has a special concentration of sugars.
And since sugars and distilling are good buddies (like the kind of buddies that would bail each other out of jail without telling their wives), we could argue that they planted their distillery in the most optimal location for producing some of the finest spirits around. And you’re about to find out what that tastes like at the finest NYE bash we could present you.
