In a significant development for the fledgling micro-distillery movement, Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey has appointed a national distributor, Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC), effective August 1.
RNDC is the second largest distributor of premium wine and spirits in the United States, with operations in nineteen states. Partnering with RNDC to handle distribution in these territories will enable Stranahan’s to refocus its efforts on increasing production of its straight Rocky Mountain whiskey.
Stranahan’s recently moved to a larger facility and increased production from six to eighteen barrels per week.
Stranahan's showed that it deserved attention from a legitimate powerhouse distributor by achieving distribution in 35 states and four foreign counties on its own.
RNDC operates in Arizona, Alabama, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey retails for about $55 a bottle.
