Ryan Thompson 

Home State: Texas

Born & raised in Houston, TX, I became a Vail resident in 1998.  I’ve lived here longer than anywhere else in my life, even Houston.  I guess that means I’m close to becoming a local.  After bartending around town my first few years I decided to take the leap and open my own restaurant, The Westside Cafe.  A few years ago I saw the craft distilling industry picking up speed so figured  someone in town should be making some spirits!  Why not me, I thought.  Now, 10th Mountain Whiskey is an amazing team of people, accepting the daily challenges of growing the brand and spreading the good word.  I’m not sure where it’s heading but I’m happy to be along for the ride.  I look forward to sharing a little whiskey with you in one of our tasting rooms.  Cheers!

Home State: Kansas Hello, my name is Caitlin and I’m from Lawrence, Kansas. I moved to Vail in 2008 from North Carolina where I attended the University of North Carolina. Growing up, I focused all my energy on tennis but was always fascinated with the mountains. After college, I drove across the country and landed in Vail only knowing one person. I’ve called Vail home ever since. My passion is tennis but my love of skiing is quickly catching up! I have a golden retriever who is 11 months named Blanche. The two of us love cruising bridge street and sipping on good whiskey!!  I’m so lucky to be apart of the 10th Mountain Whiskey crew!!! I’ve not only enjoyed learning about our spirits but the history of the 10th Mountain Division which was originally located in Camp Hail! Hope to see you all soon!!!

HELLO WHISKEY LOVERS!

Although it might be warming up in some parts of the country, we’re still in the grips of winter here in Vail.  We were greeted with 8 inches of new snow just yesterday morning. The mountain is skiing great, which leads to great ‘apre-ing’, which leads to some great whiskey sippin’!  Speaking of whiskey sippin’ we have some fun events in town this March.  At the beginning of March, the best snowboarders in the world are here for the Burton Open.  At the end of March, the Vail Film Festival is happening, with some meet & greet parties at our Tasting Room.  No excuse to not get out there & have some whiskey sippin’ fun!

SHAWN HOGAN

Distillery Manager

Home State: South Dakota

Born in North Dakota. Lived all over the country and in Quebec. But never felt like any place was special until I moved here. Finally felt right. And 22 years later I still look around filled with amazement that I live here. Just blown away and I love it.
I’ve bartended almost my entire time in the valley. Where, between coworkers and patrons, I feel like I’ve met the entire valley! Then a couple years ago Ryan asked if I was interested in being a part of their company. And though I’ve mostly enjoyed bartending, this felt different. Felt like a future. Felt like it was going to mean something.
And it has. There’s a never ending assortment of things to learn and experiment with and improve on. And truthfully I can’t see it ending throughout my time here. Which excites me. Completely different and scary and engrossing all at once. Went to UC-Riverside and my “extensive” distilling education consists of a weeklong course at Moonshine University and two separate 3 day courses at Woodford Distillery. Probably about 10 books, 20 or so online videos and countless articles in all different aspects of the business. And hands on trial and error. Lots and lots of that.
