Southern Arizona’s craft distillery industry is making its mark nationally, with local ingredients as leading flavors. BY VALERIE VINYARD

he inspiration came from Stephen Paul’s wife, Elaine, in late 2006 while the two were enjoying a mesquite-smoked barbeque dinner at their house. As the wood chips burned, she wondered about using mesquite instead of peat in making singlemalt whiskey, too. At the time, the couple owned Arroyo Design, a mesquite furniture store located on Fourth Avenue. So Paul, a University of Arizona graduate, started small with his new venture. He bought a five-gallon still in 2007, and a few years later, invested in a 40-gallon still. The two are now on display at Paul’s 8,000-square-foot Hamilton Distillers facility north of downtown Tucson, where he makes spirits with the Whiskey Del Bac label, using a 500-gallon still. Not only are Paul’s award-winning products found throughout the nation, but he is credited with commencing the craft distilling movement in Tucson. A handful of small-batch distilleries have since popped up in and around the city, turning out a variety of spirits, including vodka, whiskey, gin and even moonshine. “I think [distilleries are] going to be like craft [breweries]—we’re just a decade behind,” says Trevor Streng, one of the owners of The Independent Distillery located downtown. The Independent Distillery began making whiskey in the latter part of 2016, and has since expanded to producing rums, gins and vodkas. A few miles south, wearing cowboy hats, jeans and boots, Matt Montgomery and Chris Dudding could pass as a couple of ranch hands. The longtime friends opened Three Wells Distilling Company in 2013, and the pair operates the tasting room and still on 44th Street east of Dodge Boulevard. True to its name, the water comes from the third well on Three Wells Court on their land in Sahuarita. With it, Montgomery and Dudding create smooth spirits such as the Sonora Copper, an oak-aged spirit with a bourbon-like front and a mildly fruity finish. Montgomery, a former contractor, began the Sonora line because he wanted to make something his wife would drink. “They’re very versatile spirits,” explains Montgomery. “You can make everything from an Old Fashioned to a mule to a margarita [with them].” Tucson-area distillers have a few things in common: They’re focused on using local products and they work long, long hours. They also help each other out. Every few weeks, statewide members of The Arizona Craft Distillers Guild meet. Besides acting as a sounding board for each other’s ideas, the guild works to change state legislation to make distillery standards more equal to the production rates of wineries and breweries. Paul enjoys teaching people about his products and

Three Wells Distilling Company

”I Think [distilleries are] going to be like craft [breweries]—we’re just a decade behind.“ - Trevor Streng leads some of the facility’s tours and tastings on Saturdays. Notably, Hamilton Distillers is one of only a handful of distilleries in the United States and Scotland to employ the time-consuming process of malting its own barley. It’s safe to say that Tucson’s distillery industry is full-speed ahead with eager distillers at its helm. Each location offers its take on craft spirits, and the local charm and Southwestern infusions create a unique visiting and tasting experience. “The way Tucson embraced this product—it is so heartwarming,” Paul says. “Sometimes I just feel like the caretaker of something that belongs to Tucson.” w w w.wh e re t rave le r.c o m

THE GUIDE

Navigate

Tubac A little under an hour outside of Tucson heading south is where you’ll find this historic village, featuring more than 100 galleries to visit exhibiting everything from wood carvings to old paintings. www.tubacaz.com, 520.398.2704.

MOUNT LEMMON— The great Mount

Lemmon is named after one of its first recorded conquerors: Sara Plummer Lemmon, a botanist, who in 1881, became the first woman to reach its summit. Nowadays, you don’t have to be a pioneer to reach the 9,157-foot peak, but a daredevil streak doesn’t hurt. The Catalina Highway winds up, down and around Mount Lemmon, roller-coaster-style, coming to a halt in the little mountaintop town of Summerhaven. Gorgeous overlooks along the highway—with such curious names as Hoodoo at Windy Point, Sykes Knob and Inspiration Rock—afford mileslong views of the city and desert below. Tanque Verde Road, northeast to Catalina Highway. Tucson Map F1 SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK— This

sprawling expanse of protected land filled with stately saguaro cacti flanks Tucson to the east and west. Separated

by the city, the eastern Rincon and western Tucson mountain ranges are about an hour drive apart. Both offer hiking, biking and horseback-riding trails, as well as loop roads for motorized expeditions. The Rincon district is the more ecologically diverse of the two areas, giving visitors the opportunity to experience low-lying desert and high-country forest in a single day. In the Tucson district, hundreds of petroglyphs left by ancient Native tribes can be spotted easily from Signal Hill. www.nps.gov/sagu. Park headquarters: 3693 S. Old Spanish Trail, 520.733.5153. Tucson Map B4

Road Trips PATAGONIA LAKE— Rent a boat from

the marina to navigate along the 2.5-mile-long lake. Set up camp and fish for dinner. www.azstateparks.com/ patagonia-lake. 400 Patagonia Lake Road, Patagonia, 520.287.6965.

SCOTTSDALE— You can still buy a

cowboy hat, a pair of cowboy boots, Western and American Indian art, souvenirs and a hand-scooped sundae here. An influx of hipster investors and a boom in infill development have just added edgier art galleries, trendy gelato shops and mixed-use high-rise developments to the landscape. Pedestrians have it easy, events and festivals are plentiful, and parking is still free. Scottsdale is also home to the largest aquarium in the Southwest U.S., the Odysea Aquarium, and interactive rainforest Butterfly Wonderland. www. experiencescottsdale.com. TOMBSTONE— This Old West town is

the site of the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Ideal stop en route to Bisbee. From Phoenix: Interstate 10 east to Highway 80 east, approximately 3 hours. www.tombstonechamber.com.
