Wyn Ferrell, one of the owners of Mile High Spirits, isn't interested in charging top dollar for a bottle of booze. While he appreciates high-end artisanal labels, he wants the Mile High Spirits line to be accessible, just like the spacious warehouse tasting room that officially opened last night at 29th and Larimer. Ferrell and his partners Joe Vonfeldt and Chase Campbell will keep the party rolling through the weekend, so stop in, take a sip and say hello.
Mile High Spirits currently produces Fireside Whiskey, Elevate Vodka, Denver Dry Gin and Pegleg Rum. The distillery also caters to 23 private label clients. So can you tour this place? No, not legally. But, the distillery will eventually feature some behind-the-scenes footage via projector. Inside the tasting room you'll find a jukebox, a pool table, TVs and a variety of lounge options. This spring, when the weather is more suitable, the distillery's patio will open for outdoor drinking games like horseshoe, bocce and cornhole. And food? It's definitely not an afterthought, which is why you'll find food trucks parked outside.
