Rising Sun Distillery


Rising Sun Distillery is three blocks south of Mile High Stadium and less than a mile from the Colorado Convention Center. If you don't want to drive, take light rail to the Decatur/Federal station, or hop on a bicycle and pedal down the 13th Ave bike lane or the South Platte River bike path. As a true "craft" distillery, its vodka, gin, brandy, and eaux de vies are handmade from scratch in small batches using local and organic ingredients along with pure Colorado water. Try their spirits in an amazing artisan cocktail in the hip tasting room. The owners, Dawn and Sol, are working to introduce seasonals (like those seen in the brewery business) to the spirits world.

If you want a unique experience, Rising Sun Distillery has a free 30-minute tour experience that includes fun history on the art of distilling, their unique batch process, hands-on bottling, and tastings. Tours can be scheduled over the phone or online. Space is available for small get-togethers and events and rotating food trucks are stationed each day in the parking lot.
