Tincup Original

  • this is how we bottle the mountain

  • TINCUP is a blend of two great American whiskeys, each aged in #3 charred oak barrels. “High rye” bourbon, distilled and aged in Indiana, is blended with a small amount of Colorado single malt whiskey. These whiskeys are then cut with Rocky Mountain water. TINCUP is named for the Colorado mining pioneers and the tin cups from which they drank their whiskey.

    our secret recipe

    TINCUP starts out as three ingredients: corn, rye and malted barley.

    step 2

    distilled to proof

    Turning Grain INto Whiskey

    “High rye” bourbon is distilled in the grain belt of the Midwest where top-notch raw grain product is available for whiskey making.

    step 3

    AGED ‘TIL IT’S JUST RIGHT

    The most valuable ingredient of them all: Time

    Our whiskey is aged for a minimum of four years in American white oak barrels with a number three char.

    step 4

    cut to proof with this

    Cut to proof with Rocky Mountain spring water.

    The taste of a whiskey largely depends on the quality of water used to cut it down to proof. This is why we cut our whiskey to proof with Rocky Mountain spring water, and hand bottle it in Colorado. The result is a smooth yet bold whiskey fit for enjoying with friends in the great outdoors.
