13TH Century Whiskey was born on January 3, 2014 by entrepreneur Paul Thomas Dunning. Paul had been searching for an innovative approach to sell his premium whiskey when he noticed a glass agave plant inside a tequila bottle and wondered if a whiskey still would be possible to create for his unique brand. Development of the whiskey and packaging took 3 years and countless attempts to perfect the whiskey formula and tedious packaging requirements. Finally, on March 11, 2017 the 1st 8 bottles were sold in Estes Park, Colorado at the Whiskey Warm Up on a beautiful mountain afternoon.
We hand craft the glass whiskey still inside each bottle, no 2 are exactly the same. This is a very intricate process to shape and weld the glass still to the distillation pot. Another important challenge of development was having the correct volume of whiskey for each bottle.
