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.


ADVENTURES IN WHISKY

  • Canoe paddles and Aunt Jemima’s. Throw back to baby batches testing the water(s) and process at 7,530’ Rocky Mountain high. #behindthewhisky #estespark #makesomething
  • Small batch, handmade bandana giveaway. Tag some friends who like whisky or dogs or both. Tagged and taggers entered. Winner announced and bandana shipped out tomorrow. Question friendships with those you can’t tag. 🙏🏼 @woolrich for this awesome buffalo plaid. #estespark #whisky
  • Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery (@ngbdistillery) rocking the Lincoln County Process at their place in downtown Nashville. Go see these guys if you’re in Music City. Booze quiz: What product category will the booze seeping through the sugar maple charcoal in this sweet little setup eventually be called?
  • Sunset’s been spoiling us lately. #estespark #coloradosunsets #whisky
  • Happy Thanksgiving! We’re closed today to spend some time with all our turkeys. Have a great day! #happythanksgiving #estespark
