Limited Number of Bottles of American Single Malt Whiskey, The Trailhead, Available For Sale At Distillery

Boulder Spirits, makers of award-winning American single malt and bourbon whiskey, has announced its small batch single malt release called The Trailhead has won a double gold medal at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC).

“We’re very proud of The Trailhead single malt whiskey, and we’re thrilled to receive a double gold medal from a prestigious competition like the SFWSC,” said Boulder Spirits Cofounder Alastair Brogan. “This whiskey rating helps support the strength and possibilities for the American single malt category, and we’re excited to be part of it.”

The Trailhead is a small batch American single malt whiskey with a lightly peated sherry cask influence, created for Boulder Spirits’ Canadian distributors. Two casks were used to make this bottling, yielding a mere 850 bottles, with the distillery keeping 250 bottles for its tasting room. One PX cask contained four-year-old unpeated whiskey, while the other was filled with four-year-old peated malt whiskey. After one year of maturation in wine casks, the whiskeys were married, then proofed with Eldorado Springs water to 52.5% abv.

On the heels of their recent double gold medal wins at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition for both their Bottled In Bond (BIB) Bourbon and BIB American Single Malt whiskeys, The Trailhead’s 2023 double gold medal solidifies Boulder Spirits’ mark on the national distilling landscape. A limited number of bottles of The Trailhead are still available for tasting and purchase ($95) at the distillery’s tasting room in Boulder, Colorado.

Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is the oldest and largest competition of its kind. More than 6,000 entries were received in 2023 alone. The Double Gold medal is awarded to entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel, and are considered to be among the finest products in the world in their categories.
