Sand Creek Distillery Ltd. is a veteran-owned & operated distillery located in Hugo, Colorado. Call it a craft-, micro-, nano-, or even a pico-distillery--the goal is the same: to produce traditional, hand-crafted, pot-distilled, world-class spirits.  

I often get asked about my story or what makes me special.  I cannot even begin to count the number of narratives I have tried to write or rehearse, but to be honest Sand Creek Distillery was born of serendipity.  So many factors: ideas, successes, failures, boredom, existential crises, and a myriad of others.  As to what makes Sand Creek Distillery different--I guess I do.  That's it, me, because this is a one-person operation--not that it'll always be. However, for now, the learning, growing, developing, and creating distilled spirits is my catharsis and passion.


Standard Single Malt & American Redux

Sand Creek Distillery specializes in American Single Malt Whisky.  This whisky features:

High Plains Gold Rum

Why Sand Creek?

Hugo is a statutory town located on the Big Sandy Creek, which is one of many in Colorado formerly known as Sand Creek.  If I were to choose Big Sandy Distilling, no one would know where I was located.  However, most Coloradans have heard of the Sand Creek Massacre which occurred an hour's drive southeast.  So I chose Sand Creek Distillery because it immediately conjures up images of the Great Plains and Eastern Colorado.

And, yes, it had to be a creek because they are the only geographic landmarks out here.

The easiest and best thing to do is make the trip to Hugo!  You can Air BnB, if you're worried about my penchant to permit a barrel sample or two.
