The Golden Moon Distillery

Operated by: Golden Moon Distillery

The heart of Golden Moon Distillery is their research library containing hundreds of rare books on distillation and related products and processes, some dating back to the 1500s. Most of the collection dates from the late 1700s to the early 1900s, though there are a few titles that are much older, or newer.

Golden Moon currently has four antique stills at their pilot plant in Golden, Colorado in the USA. Their stills date from the early to mid-1900’s.

Golden Moon uses environmentally friendly packaging and business practices as much as possible. They source as many materials as possible from local producers (reducing shipping and the related carbon footprint), and are working with local wineries to utilise some of their cast-off materials in our production and packaging processes.

Their solid waste from the distilling processes is used as compost and feed by local farmers and gardeners.

The Golden Moon Distillery Brands:

Golden Moon Gin

Golden Moon Gin is distilled using the finest herbs, spices and botanicals available, including wild-crafted mint and juniper berries, and locally grown herbs and botanicals from the Front Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains near Golden Colorado in the USA. Compared to other artisan gins, Golden Moon is unique and distinctive. It has a highly floral aroma and a gentle refined taste. It is smooth enough to drink neat and bold enough to mix well with other spirits, making wonderful cocktails.

Golden Moon Gin – Port Cask Reserve

2014's reserve gin was conditioned in wet port casks from one of the top port-style wine producers in Napa Valley, California. Using freshly emptied wet port casks made from French oak from the Limousin forest results in a gin with a totally unique flavor, a wonderful rose-red color and a silky-smooth mouth feel. Due to the limited availability of these casks and the need to use only wet untreated port casks they were only able to produce 600 bottles per season.

Stephen Gould, Golden Moon Distillery

A Golden age of American gin The US is one of the world’s largest gin markets, and the biggest export market for UK-produced gin by volume. But a revolution is happening in America (not the one you might think of first!), with explosive growth in the number of local small craft distillers producing unique and increasingly popular gins. One of the leaders in this field is Colorado’s Golden Moon Distillery, founded by Stephen Gould and Karen Knight in early 2008. We talk to Stephen about the American gin boom.
