Elysian Desert Distilleries – Cave Creek, AZ

Premium Bourbon and Vodka from Carefree & Cave Creek

With two tasting rooms within a few miles, Elysian Desert Distilleries has quickly created a buzz within the Cave Creek and Carefree communities. However, the process of producing Bourbon and Vodka is takes time. The Carefree Bourbon that you drink today has been aged in charred oak barrels for years which allows for the perfect taste to be derived from the mixture of corn, rye and malt developed under the watchful eye of Renea and Michael McQuiggan.

The story of this journey to produce a high-quality brand of spirits actually began generations ago when Renea’s grandfather started acquiring farmland in north east Kansas with some of the finest soil in the country. This soil helps produce a superior quality of crops for the main ingredients that are now used in the premium products of Carefree Bourbon and Chakra Vodka.

Abigail Merritt, Renea’s daughter, developed the idea for this line of Vodka. Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or ‘circle.” Chakras are dynamic energy pockets that control and energize the vital organs of the body both physical as well as mental. Each flavor of Chakra Vodka contains ingredients that are meant to coincide with each Chakra within the energy wheel. For more information, please visit: www.elysiandesert.com
