Breckenridge Distillery

Bryan Nolt had long loved whiskey and the art of distilling, and he was inspired to open his own distillery in Breckenridge while fly fishing nearby. Bryan met Master Distiller Jordan Villa while taking classes at the American Distilling Institute in California. Bryan hired Jordan to consult to get the business up and running, and then brought him on as partner once the distillery was built. It’s the highest distillery in the world at 9600 feet above sea level!
