Distillers College - Building and Running a Distillery
About Us
        We are a small batch craft distillery located at the foot of the Grand Teton in Teton Valley, Idaho.  Our DSP (Distilled Spirits Plant) permit from the TTB (Tax and Trade Bureau) was granted 11 weeks after we applied.  Our distillery, was built from the ground up. Our equipment was ordered, shipped and in place by July, 2012.  At our first spirits competition just 3 months later, we won a Gold Medal and a 94 point ranking from the Beverage Testing Institute (tastings.com).
         In March, 2013, our vodka was awarded a Double Gold by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.f (sfspiritscomp.com).  In July, 2013, Wine Enthusiast awarded our vodka 92 points and a "Best Buy".  In June, 2013, we were awarded another Double Gold Medal by TheFiftyBest.com and 100 Smart Points by vodka.findthebest.com.   In November, 2013, we again scored 94 points and got a Gold Medal from Beverage Testing Institute. In March 2014, we won a second Double Gold Medal at San Francisco, the only vodka to EVER win Double Gold two years in a row. Our vodka is currently the #1 ranked potato based vodka in the world and the #2 ranked vodka in the world. (Proof66.com).   
          Our products are our award potato vodka; 4 white whiskeys we call "Moonshine", regular, spiced apple pie, raspberry, and huckleberry; a straight bourbon, Colter's Run, which won a Double Gold Medal at WSWA in April, 2015; and 2 flavored vodkas, Huckleberry and Vishnovka (cherry). The Vishnovka is from a Russian family recipe. We are planning a small batch single malt whiskey.
