The Ballmer Peak
We love Colorado and the spirotus folks who inhabit it. We strive to be a part of the lovely community that we humbly serve. Grain to glass we are proud to be Made In Lakewood.
Using our creativity and our passion for all things spirituous we blend tried & true methods with modern ideas and technology to deliver the best possible spirits, with unique flavors and techniques.
Age is just a number, and isn’t always the mark of a tasty product. Our aged spirits will be worth waiting for, but we can assure you that even our new make distillates are of sipping caliber.
Our production facility has been designed to waste less which is why we built a water recirculation system with conservation and sustainability at the heart. Quality water is important to a quality spirit, and we go through a great deal as to not wastefully pour it down the drain.
A World Of Inspiration
Made in Lakewood, Colorado
Who We Are
Ballmer Peak Distillery is founded and operated by Eric Strom and Austin Adamson. Lifelong friends with a history of creative, ambitious and sometimes crazy ideas that almost get finished. After a spirited conversation in 2014, surrounded by the crisp mountain air of Denver, Colorado and fueled by some delicious whiskey, the two decided to embark on a journey that they would see through to the end. Thus Ballmer Peak Distillery was born. After years of planning, searching and dreaming they decided they’d be in good hands in a cute, stand-alone building in Lakewood, Colorado.
Now, Eric and Austin hope to motivate, inspire and fuel the passions and creativity of others by sharing their delicious, quality creations with the world.
