Located in Breckenridge, Colorado, it is no surprise that the Breckenridge Distillery is known as the “World’s Highest Distillery”. Since its founding in 2008, the distillery has forged its name in their famous blended bourbon whiskey, Breckenridge Bourbon, which has won a multitude of awards and the hearts of whiskey lovers.
While hats, shirts, barware, and even “backcountry cocktail mix” for backpackers can be found on their online store, the truest experience of the distillery and their main products comes when you visit the source itself.
Breckenridge Distillery has the high honor of being the world’s highest distillery. They make superior whiskeys in a range of flavors and proofs, as well as a few other select spirits. The distillery boasts a tasting room and restaurant, located about a mile from downtown. There’s also a tasting room and gift shop on Main Street in downtown Breck.
Distillery Tours – The Breckenridge Distillery Tour offers behind the scenes views of their facility on Airport Road, off the beaten path of the city surrounded by the peaks of the Tenmile Range. For those looking for an experience for the palate, this tour will take patrons through the facility where the magic happens while tasting their vast array of vodkas, gins, and bourbons. Currently, tours are offered seven days a week from 11am through 6pm, on the hour and the half hour, but make sure to check the website before arriving! They last about thirty minutes and are first-come, first serve.
After Hours Tours – For a more exclusive experience, the distillery offers “After Hours” tours for groups of up to twenty people. On this VIP tour, the group will explore the distillery after the doors have closed and absorb a more detailed explanation of the history of the distillery, as well as the process behind the production of award-winning spirits. From time-to-time, they also allow tastings of products not yet available to the public from their lab, or barrel-aged spirits that have never been bottled.
Whether you’re a whiskey buff who laughs when asked the difference between bourbon and rye, or new to the scene of tasting meticulously crafted spirits, the Breckenridge Distillery provides a wonderfully holistic experience in which to unwind and enjoy what they work so hard to achieve; a high-quality product in the world’s highest distillery.
