Endless red walls...miles of river..inspiration from solitude...
The Grand Canyon inspires many boaters of the west and P.T. Wood was no different.
After many days on the river and bottles of whiskey shared among frinds the inspiration to distill spirits was born. This seemed link a difficult reality until legislation was passed in 2007 to allow for small scale distilling.
Brothers P.T. and Lee wood put pen to paper and lots of elbow greese to make a go to becoming a small casle distillery. "All we need is time, equipment, a building, and know how.."
And as time went on they gained all of these things. An antique German pot still built in the 1880's that had been sitting around for 50 years was kindly allowed to be put back in service by the Brothers.
She was named Ashley and she become the work horse of the small batch distilling operation. When the perfect building became avaible the brothers jumped on it and renovations came next.
