Old Elk Distillery Introduces Spirited Selections for the Holiday Season

In time for the holiday season, Old Elk Distillery in Fort Collins, Colorado introduces its flagship Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey and seasonal release Nooku Peppermint Bourbon Cream.

Crafted by Master Distiller Greg Metze, Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey features a signature mash bill that incorporates four times more malted barley than conventional recipes. The distillery uses a slow cut proofing process that allows more time for flavors to marry between proofing stages.

Nooku Peppermint – a seasonal take on original Nooku Bourbon Cream – adds a hint of mint for the holidays. Natural peppermint flavor is added to only two other ingredients – real bourbon and real dairy cream – to create a smooth, classic bourbon cream with a crisp peppermint finish.

“The support we have seen for our product portfolio from the Colorado market has been remarkable, and we feel very fortunate for our partners and their collaborative efforts this year,” said Luis Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer for Old Elk Distillery. “Launching Old Elk Bourbon in our home state of Colorado during the holiday season is an exciting opportunity that allows us to provide our consumers with a new premium selection for gift giving and sharing with friends and family.”
