The Western Slope of Colorado has unusually hot and dry summer days but cold nights with temperature swings of up to 50 degrees a day. This creates an environment perfect for Peach orchards. Colorado Peaches are big, juicy fruit that drip down your face with every bite. At Rising Sun Distillery we went straight to the farmer and got our peaches from the Cox family farms. In July and August Colorado is at the peak of the peach harvest, which is when we get to work mashing and juicing all of the peaches that go into Rising Sun Distillery Colorado Peach Brandy. After fermentation we distill the peach wine into a beautifully balanced eau 'd vie, then we take the eau d' vie and put it on oak for several months, checking it regularly to insure that the oak flavor doesn't over power the peach essence. After the color darkens and the peach is enhanced by the vanilla of the oak we know it is ready to bottle. Supporting local Colorado farms to produce the best spirits is near and dear to our beliefs at Rising Sun Distillery. Gluten free Colorado Peach Brandy is lovely served over ice or with a splash of lemonade.
