We have won numerous local awards for our products, and in 2020, the readers of Edible Magazine named Tumbleroot the best producer of distilled spirits in New Mexico.

Our Beers

Tumbleroot has a 10-barrel brew house with 10 and 20-barrel fermenters. We focus on draft beer with some seasonal, bottle conditioned releases. We have a rotating beer list featuring at least eight draft beers that reflect and resonate with the changing character of the high desert through the four seasons. Our limited release bottlings include cask aged sours and strong ales matured in spirit barrels. These special brews showcase the creative synergy between our brewery and distillery.

Our Spirits

Our distillery is set up to be versatile. The still can be run as a pot still or we can run our spirits through a 20 plate vodka column. We produce vodka, a variety of rums, whiskies, and gins, and agave spirits (can’t call it tequila if it ain’t from Mexico). All of our spirits are made from scratch with organic and wild harvested ingredients, as well as herbs and botanicals from the Kirkman’s garden. Before distillation, our whiskies, vodkas and gins begin their lives as beers in our brew house, and we believe that this cross pollination between brewery and distillery makes our spirits unique.

Oro Rum

We begin this gold rum using our Blanco Rum as the base, and then aging it on oak until it picks up a light golden hue with hints of vanilla and caramel. As smooth, delicate, and fruity as its sister,…

Farmhouse Whisky

Botanical Gin

This gin was inspired by the floral bounty of our brewer’s home garden. (OK, in the interest of full disclosure, we should say that it’s really his wife’s garden—he just turns the compost.) Our botanical gin has less juniper than…
