First & 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.
Our carefully-curated drink menu features a variety of libations made with high proof Colorado whisky, along with soft drinks for kids and drivers.
We also have plenty of whisky paraphernalia that will pass security in your carry-on: T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, glasses, copper mugs and more.
