Santa Fe Spirits was founded by Colin Keegan in 2010 with the goal of becoming the Southwest’s pre-eminent artisan distillery. With products ranging from silver whiskey to barrel-aged apple brandy, Santa Fe Spirits is a relatively small distillery proud to be producing exceptional spirits designed to capture and accentuate the essence of the southwest. Please stop by the distillery for a visit and we will be happy to show you what making world-class spirits are all about. In 1992, owner Colin and his wife Suzette decided to move to Santa Fe with their daughter Phoebe, where they soon realized their dream of living in Tesuque, a traditional farming community just outside of Santa Fe, and built their home on a mature apple orchard with trees ranging from young saplings to massive centenarians. The orchard produces a great variety of heirloom apples, and every fall apple picking and juicing is an enjoyable and rewarding activity. However, the orchard is so productive that the abundance of apple cider is always an issue.
Thankfully, a solution was literally fermenting the whole time, although Colin did not yet know where this solution would take him or how long it would be before it became a reality.
Colin has always appreciated good Scotch and Brandy, so when the economy took a turn in 2009 he closed down his architectural business in order to concentrate on building a distillery where he could produce his own style of these traditional spirits. For Colin, the birth of Santa Fe Spirits in 2010 was the dream of a lifetime.
