Bre(w)/wi(ne)/(distil)leryThis new tour focuses on the art of creating wonderful flavors. It is for those who love shiny tanks and wonder “how is that made?” Gain insight into the arts of brewing, vinification and distillation, accompanied by moderate tastings.
This half-day tour is offered on Friday afternoons, or by special arrangement, at the foot of the Bookcliff mountains in Palisade, Colorado.
We begin with a grill lunch and tour of the Palisade Brewing Company, with a synopsis of beer crafting and tastes of the brews crafted there.
Following that we visit a Palisade winery to learn how the winemaker crafts local grapes into flavorful wines - available, of course, for tasting.
We finish with a demonstration of fermentation, distillation and flavoring of Colorado vodkas, gins, degaves, and whiskies, followed by tastings of the finished spirits at Peach Street Distillery.
Many of the businesses we visit graciously extend tours and tasting for free or for a small charge. They appreciate your business and would love for you to purchase some of their products. No worries about your purchases: our vehicles have plenty of room and your driver will carry them for you.
