You can get DownTime at these two spots (more to come in the next week or so):
Joy Wine & Spirits in Denver
LiquorMart in Boulder

or, you can ride over to BV and grab a bottle from our distillery -- temps are still in the low 50's!

On the great locally made colorado whiskey tip, In addition to this new stuff out of Wyoming which is getting amazing reviews, (and of course my own booze!) I'd also recommend checking out Dancing Pines Bourbon, Downslope's Double Diamond Whiskey, Leopold Bros Rye, and Stranahan's -- all made from scratch on the front range.

Thanks!!! Seems like I pass through BV every time I head out. Now I have a reason to stop!

Don't forget Montanya Distillery formerly of Silverton (they still have a store there), now of Crested Butte. I love the Oro dark Rum and I saw it at Beverage Nation on 104th in north Denver for $29.99 on sale for $26.99.
God made wiskey so the Irish wouldn't rule the world!

My understanding is a distiller from Makers Mark retired from them and is part of this project. I picked up a couple cases and to me it tastes like a real good Jim Beam.

Correct. Steve Nally is the head distiller over there. He was given free reign to develop a premium bourbon with the ingredients and production practices of his choosing. They use 100% wyoming products to create their bourbon (minus the oak barrels since there's no oak in wy).

What's REALLY cool about these guys is that they committed to creating their own style of bourbon (which will differ from anything out of Kentucky due to grain source and climate) and saw it though from grain to glass. So many "distilleries" these days buy their spirit from the big guys (ex. LDI produces all of the rye whiskey for Redemption Rye, Templeton Rye, Bulleit Rye and more) and then deceptively offer up what they put in bottles as locally crafted whiskey. You'd be surprised how many local/micro/craft distilleries don't make their own spirit!

Scout_WY, good on you for supporting a real craft distillery! I'd be down to trade a bottle any time.
