It was during Meagan and Patrick Miller’s honeymoon in Ireland that an idea to turn their passion for whiskey into a life-changing endeavor was born. “My husband and I always bonded over tasting whiskey,” Meagan says.

The events that led to the opening of Talnua Distillery in Arvada are so serendipitous that a movie producer might want to take note. The main characters would be husband and wife Patrick and Meagan Miller, who were introduced to this style of whiskey while on their honeymoon in Ireland.
“Women have been making booze and consuming booze since the beginning of alcohol’s existence, so in essence, we’re just continuing that tradition.”
WHILE AMERICAN DISTILLERS indeed make singular spirits, there’s no denying that the history of American whiskey is inextricably linked to Ireland. The two countries are, after all, the ones that put the “e” in whiskey while most of the rest of the world follows Scotland’s “whisky.”
