Distillers College - Building and Running a Distillery
About Us
 
        We are a 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 November, 2012.  In March, 2013, our vodka was awarded a Double Gold by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (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.  We are currently the #1 ranked potato based vodka in the world and the #3 ranked vodka in the world.

          Our award winning spirit is a potato vodka.  We released an un-aged white whiskey, Teton Moonshine, in 3 flavors in October, 2013. Teton Moonshine, Teton Spiced Apple Pie Moonshine, and Teton Huckleberry Moonshine are Idaho's first whiskey. Our first flavored vodka is a cherry vodka infusion, made from real cherries, with just a hint of sweetness.  It is made from a Russian family recipe and is called Vishnovka.  Our bourbon will be released in the summer of 2014 and our single malt whiskey will be laid down in spring for later release.
