Denver Distilleries

Denver and Colorado have long been recognized as havens for beer lovers and brewers. Only in recent years has that love of fine craft alcohol transferred to the art of distilling spirits. 

STRANAHAN'S COLORADO WHISKEY

200 S. Kalamath St.
Stranahan's
lays claim to being the first Colorado-born whiskey, and they remain committed to making the smoothest, most distinctively flavored whiskey on the market. How do they do it? By using handcrafted distilling techniques and Colorado's finest natural ingredients. The connoisseurs of the beverage world are taking notice, too: Stranahan's Batch 49 was voted artisanal whiskey of the year in 2010 by Malt Advocate magazine.

Free tours of the distillery last approximately 30-45 minutes and include an overview of the company and a guided stroll through the production brew house, still house and rack house. See the bottling room floor and - most importantly - get a taste of Colorado's most precious gold, Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey. All guests are required to have a valid ID with proof of age. Reservations are highly recommended, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. Make an online reservation.

One of the country’s premier private label and custom brand distilleries, Mile High Spirits (MHS) is located in the trendy LoDo district. MHS is one of three distilleries in the world to use an all-glass still for distillation which means that no metals or impurities are picked up throughout the distilling process, allowing for the most pure, crisp, and high quality product possible. Beyond private label, Mile High Spirits offers its own products to the mix, including Elevate Vodka, Fireside Whiskey, Peg Leg Rum, and Denver Dry Gin.

LOCAL TIP: Mile High Spirits' tasting room boasts a great patio with picnic tables and yard games. Come hungry because the tasting room almost always has a delicious food truck vending in front of the glass garage door.
