It's time to make your plans to attend the Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival! This unique festival takes place in the stunning setting of Breckenridge. This event is hosted by Breckenridge Distillery, who has racked up award after award since its inception. You might be asking… could whiskey distilled above 8,500 feet be any different from your local liquor store? Well, as it turns out it is really different! This is just one of many new things to learn at this classic western affair.
New to the distillery is their award winning vodkas. With some unique flavors to offer, it too is surprising many with it's smoothness and tastefulness and will be on display for all to enjoy this week. The distillery attributes its success to “the careful mingling of casks at each bottling” and the “mineralogy of the Breckenridge snowmelt water.” Both add flavor and body to the distillery’s bourbon, vodka, and bitters.
