The Story of Leopold Bros.
Originally produced for their own brew-pub, Todd Leopold makes very small batches using only a 40-gallon pot still with a six plate column. Is there a harder working still in the USA?Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated small batch distillery located in Denver, Colorado.
Leopold Bros distills hand-numbered, batch-made products, all made from scratch and natural ingredients. Among the distinctive methods used by Leopold Bros. is the separate distillation of each botanical used in flavouring its products prior to blending and final distillation.
Todd Leopold got his start in distilling after he received his Diploma in Malting and Brewing from the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago in 1996. After graduation, he trained at the Doemens School in Munich, focusing on the production of lager beers. He then apprenticed at several breweries and distilleries throughout Germany.
Scott Leopold began his career in manufacturing after receiving a B.A. in Economics and a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University and a Masters in Environmental Engineering from Stanford University. He spent the early part of his career engineering environmentally sustainable manufacturing processes for Fortune 500 companies.
Together, the Leopold Brothers designed and developed a unique distillery in which environmental sustainability is a daily practice, and the art and science of fermentation and distillation is practiced at the highest possible level.
