Breckenridge Distillery Announces the Release of Powder Hound Bourbon

Breckenridge Distillery has announced the release of The Powder Hound Bourbon. Released in batches, batch 1 is a blend of Bourbons from the oldest barrels in their library. While they’d like to give a timeline on Batch 2, Powder Hound is unique enough that it may only come around once.

The Powder Hound name comes from the distillery’s love for dogs, but shares meaning with the reason they put down their roots in the mountains – Colorado powder days. From the most epic powder days with deep fluffy turns to catching a snowflake on their tongues, the Distillery is constantly inspired by the great outdoors. They share this desire to explore with man’s best friend. If you’ve visited their offices, you know that dogs sometimes outnumber employees.

To support of the pet community in Breckenridge, they’re teaming up with the Frisco Animal Shelter to donate $5 from each bottle sale, with a goal to raise $2,500.

On April 20th, 2018, Head Distiller Hans Stafsholt will be offering a private tasting in the Dark Arts Society where guests will learn some of the processes used in distilling, experience an in-depth tasting of Powder Hound, and hear a brief history of the Breckenridge Distillery. Book tickets here. Limited seating will be available at a cost of $25 per person. Attendees will also receive $5 off a bottle purchase of Powder Hound and $5 of the purchase will be donated to the Animal Shelter Fund.

Bottles of Powder Hound Bourbon are available now for $175, sold exclusively in Breckenridge at the Breckenridge Distillery and Main Street Tasting Room and presented at 90 proof.
