TOP 10 DISTILLERIES IN COLORADO
This is a top ten list, but we included twelve (we must be drunk). Colorado has such a diversity of distilleries that it was impossible to narrow down the list any further.

COCKPIT CRAFT DISTILLERS (COLORADO SPRINGS)

This Colorado Springs distillery was fittingly started by an Air Force veteran (most importantly... thank you for serving in the military, and secondarily... thank you for serving the whiskey). The products and the tasting room are military-themed.

STRANAHAN'S COLORADO WHISKEY (DENVER)

Stranahan's is Colorado's first craft distillery. The distillery produces whiskey and nothing else. Every barrel is bottled by hand, in many cases by volunteers. The bottlers write a note on the label to let the consumer know what song they were listening to when bottling.

Fun fact - Stranahan's was Colorado's first legal distillery since prohibition.
