Ironton Distillery & Crafthouse has announced the launch of a new limited edition whiskey, Switchback Single Malt. The new offering from the Denver-based distillery is set to be made available on June 19th
Ironton Switchback Single Malt is made of 100% malted barley. It’s distilled and aged at Ironton’s RiNo distillery by head distiller, Laura Walters. On the nose, there’s notes of cantaloupe, stone fruit, cinnamon and caramel. On the palate, it’s sweet, bright, and grassy with a light mouthfeel and defined finish.
Tagged as “A Whiskey Made for Adventures,” Ironton Switchback Single Malt comes in a lightweight, durable aluminum bottle that’s easy to toss in with any outdoor gear and take along into the backcountry. Once the whiskey has been enjoyed, the bottle can be refilled and used again as a water bottle.
Switchback Single Malt in reusable aluminum bottles is a limited edition release for Summer 2021. Bottles are available for pre-order online for $45 and can be picked up directly from Ironton during the Stay Wild Market on June 19th. Ironton’s Stay Wild Market celebrates Colorado’s outdoors with local vendors that encourage guests to get outside and explore. The market will be free to attend with strict COVID protocols in place.
Named after a lost, but not forgotten, mining town in Southern Colorado and the 19th century ‘Ironton Addition’ of Denver that would become known as RiNo today, the brand was born out of the adventurous heritage and spirit of its home state and city.
