Rising Sun Distillery

Rising Sun Distillery in Colorado was founded in 2013 by Sol Richardson and his wife, Dawn Nudell Richardson. The distillery’s range includes Bourbon and rye whiskey, gin, vodka and liqueurs.

The distillery produces its spirits from scratch using local ingredients and water from Colorado. The site recently collaborated with Colorado-based Epic Brewing to create Dark Angel Whiskey, which has been aged in stout beer barrels.

Rising Sun’s distillery is based in Denver, with the producer opening a new site in Frisco, Colorado this year. The Frisco facility is home to a restaurant and tasting room.
