Korsgard is passionate about the craft behind making a good and unique whiskey.
“In my opinion, what makes a good whiskey is the craft behind it. I like whiskeys that are unique. It can be really boring when you're trying a whiskey that you're like, 'oh, this tastes just like the other ones,’” explains Korsgard. “We’re craft. We are truly batch to batch. I mean yes, we have a lot of consistency in our products, but down to a nuanced flavor you may be able to taste a little bit (of a difference) between batch to batch and we’re okay with that.”
With over 20 cocktails, a cozy bar room and year-round outdoor seating with firepits, Steamboat Whiskey Company has a lot to offer.
“We really just tried to create a warm, welcoming area for individuals to come with good people and enjoy a nice craft cocktail,” says Korsgard.
