About Us

Colorado Craft Spirits has been established to share the love of the small batch, craft distilling industry in Colorado with everyone here in the UK for sale.

What do you think when you think of Colorado - mountains, fresh air, skiing, hiking. Now what do you think of when you picture craft distilling? Men (mainly) with beards, crazy in love with what they do, what they make and how they make it. Well add those images together and that's pretty much it. But what they produce together is magical.

Over the next year, we will be building our portfolio of drinks available on the website as we taste them (the good bit) and bring them to the UK (the hard bit).
