At Rising Sun Distillery, their mission is to produce the finest hand-crafted Certified Organic distilled spirits and have fun doing it! As a true micro-distillery, they pride themselves on making sure every prepared batch of spirits from grain to glass. This means starting with the best locally sourced Organic produce and grains they can get their hands on, Rocky Mountain ice melt water and producing every bottle with their custom built equipment. While other processes may be easier, Rising Sun Distillery knows doing it this way creates the best quality and consistency for making each and every batch.
Sol and Dawn were working the grind, Sol as a software developer for a large firm and Dawn as a high school social studies teacher. They decided to try their hand at being entrepreneurs and follow in the footsteps of their great grandparents, who were bootleggers and distillers in mining camps. Sol's family made liquor from pears in the Midwest during prohibition and Dawn's great grandfather made his own whiskey while working copper mines in Utah. In 2013 they decided to start the process of opening a craft distillery. After two years of planning and execution they opened the doors to a 1,700 square foot distillery in the shadow of Mile High Stadium in Denver. Ever since they have been producing the highest quality Certified Organic spirits, supporting local farmers who supply their, peaches, lavender, chile and some grains.
