Ryan and Tom were working in Boulder, CO when they decided it could be a hell lot of fun to make an authentic bourbon whiskey in their spare time. Together with their handy friend Scott, they fashioned an old water heater into a still, and began to fiddle with different recipes. After many fruitless attempts, they found out a formula that worked. Once successfully distilling a delicious white spirit, they turned to using cuttings from the tree branches in Tom’s backyard to flavor their liquor, stored in mason jars in Tom’s basement! As a result, our first barrels were these branches; hence our name ‘Branch & Barrel’. Friends and family loved it so much that they pushed to scale-up production and turn Branch & Barrel into a business.
