Axe and the Oak Distillery’s whiskey represents our city’s story, blending history and the promise of new exciting horizons. Check out their Whiskey House inside the converted Ivywild School. We recommend trying their Pikes Peak Hill Shine, an ode to the world-famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Sitting at 104 proof, this blend will marvel you with its intriguing marshmallow and citrus aromas with finishing notes of corn, caramel, and apricot.  You can also indulge the Colorado Mountain Bourbon Whiskey, the distillery’s cornerstone spirit. This bourbon is created with a blend of melted grains and aged in American White Oak barrels.

Distillery 291 is arguably Colorado Spring’s best-known and most-decorated distillery. The distillery scooped up the gold medal at the 2017 World Spirit Competition in San Francisco. The distillery’s tasting room features each of their eight flagship whiskeys and a range of classic cocktails. For the whiskeys, try the Barrel Proof Colorado Whiskey, a high-proof but smooth whiskey aged of one year. Indulge in the Single Barrel Colorado Rye Whiskey or try their citrus clove liqueur, The Decc. Distillery 291’s cocktails are also an interesting prospect for booze lovers. The Blackberry Sour is a local’s favorite alongside the Colorado Fresh Whiskarita, which are best, served extra chilled.

Blackhat Distillery

The black hat has always symbolized innovation, rebellion, and influence, worn by those who push boundaries and demand change. The founders and products of the distillery uphold this tradition. When three community partners saved a struggling local distillery, they embarked on extensive renovations, rebranding, and recipe development. They are unapologetic perfectionists, sourcing 100% blue agave nectar from 9th generation family farmers in Mexico for their tequila, using blackstrap molasses for their rum instead of high-fructose corn syrup, and fermenting their brandy with wine yeast for a crisp, fruity profile. These decisions may seem unconventional, but they are the only way to uphold the standards befitting the Blackhat legacy.

 

 

Private Label Distillery
