We were taken on a tour through the distillery with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Our particular guide's name is Chris. He knew what he was talking about and you could tell he loves what he does. That alone always makes tours like this stand above others who simply come across as if it is just a job for a paycheck. I won't spoil too much as it is definitely something you just have to go do, but I will say that the end of the tour consists of tasting three different types of their whiskey to compare, contrast, and overall discuss and make sense of the different experiences all three provide. When anything at all is crafted with care, attention to detail, and love of the final product it shows through ever step of the process. Stranahans is the embodiment of the aforementioned and I absolutely reccomend this tour to anyone who is interested.

Our tour was, by far, the best distillery tour we've ever taken. Our guide, Chris, made us all feel welcome and at home within minutes of arrival. The information he provided along with the personality he brought to his profession is what made this so special. This is better than many of the most famous distillery tours you might think of in Kentucky or elsewhere. We typically don't do a tour twice at the same distillery, but if we're ever back in Denver, we'll certainly take this one again.

The tour guide was funny, informative and very knowledgeable of inner workings of making whiskey.
I'm not sure if I missed this information but it would have been nice if they informed guests prior to arrival that the tour (in the winter) is FREEZING! The outside (large garage) doors were open and we stood there for quite some time listening to the opening tour info. The entire building for the tour is not heated so be prepared (in addition to the doors being open in 25 degrees temps).
I froze the entire time, feet were freezing (concrete floors) and it was hard to concentrate on anything else even though I had a wool sweater on and down coat.
I do believe that Stranahan's is now owned by Cuervo but that wasn't mentioned of course on the tour.
I think it's a great tour for those who love whiskey and are visiting CO I suppose. I live here so it wasn't a big deal and came to support a friend who gathered here for his birthday.
They have a bar area where you can buy other whiskey infused cocktails either before or after the tour.
You do get a shot glass as your token if you're into that sort of thing.

Our tour lasted an hour with a tasting towards the end. The atmosphere is great and if you show up a bit early, enjoy the lovely bar atmosphere and talented bartending staff’s skills. Most of the tours you take are overcrowded and you feel dragged along, not here. They cap their tours off for a better experience. Our guide was Matt, he answered all of our questions regarding the history or distillation process before moving on. He maintained a great candor with the group and was very informative. If you’re looking for a fun evening out to learn a bit and enjoy Whiskey, I’d highly recommend this tour!

Our tasting was wonderful! The guide was very knowledgeable and charismatic which made the experience a lot smoother and more enjoyable. She fielded any questions with grace and humility when there was something that she may not have known the answer to. Definitely recommend it, even for non-whiskey drinkers!

Two take-aways from our stop; first was just how friendly every staff member was at Stranahan's, and second, the whisky flight was outstanding. The Snow Flake sample was one of the best whiskies that I have tasted. I can see why the "once a year" event has folks lined up for days to acquire. These guys understand whisky and are always happy to share their knowledge with you.

We loved our tour over Labor Day weekend - we had a fantastic, knowledgeable guide (Max) and really enjoyed getting to sample different types of whisky. The distillery is well set-up, clean, and a good size, so you see most of it within the hour or so of the tour. We've been on tons of distillery tours over the past few years, and I highly recommend this one!

The tours are a perfect mix of informative, personable, and fun. The tasting room and cocktail lounge were great spaces to spend time with our friends and family, and all the whiskeys were tasty and unique. We left with good memories and souvenirs, and would recommend a visit to the distillery to anyone who wants to learn a little more about whiskey and have a good time (inclduing repeat visits to participate in the different experiences as well).

What were we thinking doing two distillery tours in one afternoon?!? I tell you what, it was totally worth it. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker, but you have to check out Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey.

We had some time before the tour, so we bellied up to the bar. Steve B., mixologist and server, was really cool and explained the drinks to us. When it was time for the tour, we were introduced to Logan. He was an awesome tour guide, and has a great personality for it. He gave us a history of Stranahan's as well as what it takes to make their whiskey.

During the tour, we were given some samples. Again, not being a whiskey drinker, I was surprised at how you go about tasting it. And it wasn't bad! Logan even showed us what happens to the whiskey when you add a little bit of water to it. We were able to keep our tasting glass as a souvenir, and some of our group took advantage of the discount after the tour to bring home a bottle or two!

I've never toured a bourbon distillery and decided to take the tour as part of a second date. We arrived a little early and had a great cocktail before the tour, my date thought it was the best bourbon cocktail ever. The tour itself was fun, the tour guide had a theater background and projected well, and kept our interest. With bourbon. Along with the history and distillation background, we also received samples of three different bourbons, each better than the last. By the end of the tour we were chatting with other couples and raising our glasses in toast. Then we had another cocktail and Ubered out. Highly recommended!
