Limited Number of Bottles Available Beginning August 25, 2023

Boulder, CO – Boulder Spirits, makers of award-winning American single malt and bourbon whiskey, has announced the release of The 10 Essentials, the distillery’s 2023 limited edition American single malt. This complex, spice-driven whiskey will be available for orders and purchase at the distillery beginning August 25, 2023.

The 10 Essentials is Boulder Spirits’ second annual limited edition single malt release and is the follow-up to 2022’s The Trailhead, which won a double gold medal at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition earlier this year. The 10 Essentials combines five different casks, including five-year ex-armagnac, -tawny port, and -PX sherry casks with two casks of straight single malt in new American oak. The result is a spice-filled, luscious dram whiskey aged from 5 -6.5 years was used to create this label.

“We’re excited about this whiskey and to be creating innovative, complex single malts using different casks to get a myriad of flavors,” said Boulder Spirits Cofounder Alastair Brogan. “We’re thrilled to be a leader in the American single malt space, and we look forward to sharing The 10 Essentials with whiskey lovers here everywhere.”

Continuing with the same outdoors theme of The Trailhead, The 10 Essentials refers to the basic necessities needed to survive in the outdoors: navigation, light, shelter, food, fire, a knife, first aid, sun protection, proper clothing, and of course, water. Boulder Spirits’ water source, nearby Eldorado Springs artesian water, is an essential ingredient of this whiskey.

The five casks used in The 10 Essentials were married for eight weeks, then proofed to 49.5% ABV/99 Proof with Eldorado Springs water. The combination of Boulder Spirits’ water, proprietary yeast, and imported barley in this whiskey, aged in Colorado’s intense climate, has created an exceptional single malt with undulations of flavor.

Boulder Spirits is releasing 1,800 bottles of The 10 Essentials, with an MSRP of $64.99.
