Distillery


About:
Downslope Distilling is the invention of Mitch Abate, Matt Causey and Andy Causey and is the result of their passion for quality adult beverages. They began their interest in the subject through home brewing; though typical home brewers they are not. While Andy was researching advanced wort production and home brewing technique, Mitch was traveling the country compiling mountains of information about how whiskey was made. Matt was perfecting the art of grain mashing and fermentation. Though they had known each other for a very long time, two years ago they decided to combine their talents and produce limited amounts of hand crafted spirits. The goal: Produce and sell the highest quality distilled spirits (rum, whiskey and vodka) available, to do so locally, and to make those products first available to the local community.

The next year was utilized to research how this could be done. Their energy turned to selecting an appropriate facility, selecting equipment suitable to their product-centered goals and meeting the extensive regulatory requirements to establish Centennials’ first craft distillery.

The still is custom designed, the wash production is more artisanal than state of the art and the space is limited. The principals believe that with the support of the many beverage enthusiasts met over the years, they have the means to delight the local community with spirits of incredibly high quality. Spirits made, whenever possible from local produce, by members of the community.

The Principals have climbed the mountain of establishing the facility and perfecting their techniques. It is now time to go Downslope to double diamond (expert) spirits.

Leopold Bros
About:
Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated small batch distillery located in Denver, Colorado that produces world class liqueurs, flavored whiskeys, vodka, rum, gin and absinthe. All of our products are handcrafted, hand-numbered, small batch spirits.

Master Distiller Todd Leopold personally handcrafts every spirit we produce in a 40 gallon hand-hammered copper pot still that is so small you could literally wrap your arms around it. Each batch fills between only 30 and 50 6-pack cases, and each bottle is numbered by hand according to the batch from which it came. This small detail tells you that each spirit Leopold Bros. produces is truly unique and is crafted by an artisan distiller rather than an industrial giant.

The singular flavors of our spirits, together with the uniqueness of hand numbered bottles puts our spirits at the door of the very finest restaurants and spirits purveyors. Our spirits will be coming soon to a location near you, so ask for it at your favorite establishment.

If you live in Colorado, California, Georgia, Virginia, the United Kingdom, Washington DC, or Wyoming, just ask for it at your favorite store. If you do not, you can purchase it over the internet from one of our retail partners.

About:
Who are we? Well, we’re three good friends (Rory, Bill, and Dave) with a penchant for hooch, and years of professional brewing and distilling experience between us, and why Palisade? It is where the finest fruits in Colorado are grown. Although Palisade enjoys cool nights during the growing season, it is located at 4700 feet in elevation, in a desert climate, and receives intense sunlight. Fruit that ripens in these conditions has a special concentration of sugars.

In other words, our brandies are made with the finest fruit available to us, and used at the peak of ripeness and freshness. Our Colorado Bourbon and our Goat Vodkas are made with sweet corn from the nearby town of Olathe.

Many of our products are produced in limited quantities and are only available in our tasting room, so it is well worth stopping by. You will you have the opportunity to taste some our fine spirits, as well, Rory is always worthy of some interesting conversation! So visit us soon!!

Mystic Mountain Distill
About:
In the world of vodka, the mass producers would have you believe all vodka is the same. Sure, most people can taste the difference between a low quality vodka and a more expensive, middle of the road vodka. However, tasting the difference between mid-range vodka and top shelf vodka, according to the mass producers, is marketing.

The Europeans have a different take of vodka, especially the Germans, to whom vodka is truly a flavored product. Flavor does not come from lemon or lime, orange juice or tonic; rather, flavor is a direct result of the recipe and distillation process. Many small European distilleries make distinct tasting vodka, with a hint of flavor derived from individual recipes. While most of the world’s mass vodka makers are trying to appeal to mass-market taste, the micro distilleries find their niche in the subtle differences vodka can have in richness, smoothness and body.

Micro-distillers throughout the nation are determined to show vodka – clean, crisp and colorless – does not mean flavorless. Mystic Mountain Distillery exemplifies boutique distilling and demonstrated vodka produced with smoothness, less bite and in many cases, flavor.

About:
Vodka 14 is a premium vodka brand based in Boulder, CO. It is a product of Altitude Spirits, a Colorodo based company. The product holds a USDA organic certification. It is distilled from organic corn and rye with Rocky Mountain spring water. It debuted at the Healthy Gourmet Festival in Aspen, Colorado. Vodka 14 won the silver medal at the 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Vodka 14 began as an idea between Matthew Barris and Jonathan Weiss. The two NYU graduates decided that Colorado needed a small-batch vodka, similar to the micro-brewed beers popular in the state. As a result, Matthew and his father Mitch started Altitude Spirits and began producing Vodka 14. The Vodka is currently available throughout Colorado and online.

About Us:
Great Minds Drink Alike

Full-bodied as the fire that bore it, this whiskey glowed amber from the start. When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor’s barn fire down the road, he never imagined any good could come of it. But the barn he made effort to save belonged to George Stranahan, long-time liquor connoisseur. When the fire settled, the two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a good pour of fine whiskey. And so Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey was born. They developed a recipe for the smoothest, most flavorful whiskey in the world using the purity of their mountain surroundings to their advantage. Well, to your advantage. They say from each thing bad comes something good. For Jess, George, and fine whiskey drinkers alike, it’s amazing just how good it can be.
