The Hearts & Trails Spirits Festival Launches the Colorado Spirits Trail
It’s no secret to our readers that Colorado has long been the State of Craft Beer, but did you know that our home is also a leader in the craft distilling industry? Our state is blessed with barrels of great distilleries! The Colorado Distillers Guild wants to encourage spirit lovers from near and far to explore our great Colorado craft spirit scene.
The Hearts & Trails Spirits Festival celebrates the launch of the Colorado Spirits Trail, a map that will guide spirit lovers to more than 70 Colorado craft distilleries, while providing some awesome perks you can earn along the way.
“We have the most distilleries per capita in the country, the ‘oldest’ craft distillers, and some of the most innovative spirits coming out of Colorado, all of which are held to the highest of self-imposed standards,” according to Colorado Distillers Guild member and Deerhammer Distillery sales director Ryan Negley. “What better way to explore pockets of Colorado that are home to Colorado distillers than to go on a road trip?”
The Hearts & Trails Spirits Festival will feature more than 40 great Colorado craft distillers, all under one roof. Spirit lovers are sure to find many of their favorite local craft distilleries and are even more likely to discover several new favorites. Just check out this list of participating distilleries:
