Slow Down. Take the Trail. Heighten Your Spirits!

Colorado boasts one of the largest and most vibrant distilling communities in the country. To inspire the discovery of spirits pioneered by some of the most creative makers in the industry, 61 Colorado craft distilleries have joined together to create the Colorado Spirits Trail.

We strive to redefine the American frontier and invite novices and connoisseurs alike to experience our innovative spirits across the Eastern Plains and the Western Slope, through the bustling cities of the Front Range, and the snowy peaks of the Rockies.

How It Works

Get your 2019 Official Map & Guide at participating distilleries or Colorado tourist information offices or download a printable version here.

Collect stamps on your printed map at each participating distillery. After visiting 10 distilleries present your stamped map to one of the participating distilleries and ask for a t-shirt. The distillery will give you a t-shirt and bragging rights for having completed the first round of the Colorado Spirits Trail.

While we firmly believe that your journey along the Colorado Spirits Trail, and the delicious spirits that you experience, are reward in and of themselves, we will sweeten the pot still by presenting everyone who receives a stamp from all participating distilleries represented on the 2019 map, also referred to as TrailBlazers, two bottles of spirits selected randomly from the participating distilleries.

In addition, there will be a monthly drawing from all completed maps submitted to present one TrailBlazer with 40 bottles of spirits selected randomly from the participating distilleries. All bottles will be awarded in 2020. Only one 40 bottle winner per household.

MUST BE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OF AGE TO PARTICIPATE. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. PLEASE ENJOY RESPONSIBLY.

To Submit Your Completed Map

1. Fill out the form here. You will need to submit a pdf of your completed map. If you started in 2018 and finished in 2019 please submit a pdf of each map. (Please label the pdf with your first and last name and the year of the map.)

2. If among all of the fun you forgot to get your map stamped submit a jpg of receipts and/or photos from distilleries where you did not obtain a stamp to verify your visit. (Please label the jpg with your first and last name and the distillery name.)

3. We may ask you to mail your completed map for verification so hold onto it! If we do collect your actual map it will be returned when you receive your bottles.

 

If You Have a Partially Completed 2018 Map:  Get a 2019 map from a participating distillery or print one here. Start visiting the 2019 distilleries that you have not yet visited. We will credit your 2018 visits toward the 2019 map.

2018 TrailBlazers:  If you claimed bottles from the 2018 Colorado Spirits Trail you will need to plan a second adventure to all 2019 participating distilleries to qualify. We hope that at the very least you visit the new distilleries and claim another t-shirt along the way!
