FIRST AND ONLY SPIRITS MADE (LEGALLY) IN

ESTES PARK

We acknowledge and tip our hats to the men and women who have been making excellent whisky in the Rocky Mountains for hundreds of years. Elkins Distilling is honored to continue that tradition by founding the town’s first legal distillery. After a couple of years navigating the wild and menacing canyons of the distilled spirits manufacturing permit process, we opened on July 4, 2016, and began our whisky adventures in earnest.
Our distillery and tasting room is in the eastern part of Estes Park, across the street from Lake Estes.
