1. Breckenridge Bourbon, A Blend [86pf]

Breckenridge Distillery is most widely known for our blended bourbon whiskey, a high-rye mash American-style whiskey.  Breckenridge Bourbon is one of the most highly awarded craft bourbons in the market and for good reason. Our award-winning, high-rye Bourbon Whiskey is aged for a minimum of three years, in charred, new American oak barrels, and blended to reveal the unique qualities of the Bourbon Whiskey. Deep, honey-amber hue with pronounced aromas of butterscotch, candied orange and apple; dry cacao and brown sugar envelop the tongue as the spirit lingers with notes of vanilla and white pepper. Get home delivery

2oz Breckenridge Bourbon
1/2oz Breckenridge Bitter
1/2oz sweet vermouth
2 dashes barrel-aged whiskey bitters
Stir top 4 ingredients with ice. Serve up.

2. Port Cask Finish Whiskey [90pf]

Our Port Cask Finish is a Best American Blended recipient at the World Whiskies Awards and that is no surprise. Our award-winning Bourbon Whiskey gets some final grooming in 59 gallon Tawny Port casks, adding aroma and flavor of sultana raisin and maple syrup, which round out and soften the naturally spicy finish. Thanks to the superior Tawny Port casks, each batch flaunts a unique expression. Get home delivery

2-1/2oz  Breckenridge Port Cask Finish
1/2oz raw simple syrup*

3. Collectors Art Series Whiskey [92pf]

The limited-edition Collectors Art Series whiskey was born from our passion not only for whiskey but Bryan’s passion for art. This series tells the story of blending whiskey and color with Denver local graffiti artists. This 100% grain-to-bottle, high-rye Bourbon Whiskey is the proud winner of the 2020 Icons of Whisky for Campaign Innovator of the Year at the World Whiskies Awards and a Gold medal recipient for taste at the San Francisco Int’l Spirits Competition. It is distilled and aged six or more years in Breckenridge. 11 barrels were carefully selected and blended to complement the work of local artist Thomas “Detour” Evans. Aromatic butterscotch, candied orange and vanilla overwhelm the nose, leading to a complex palate of caramel apple and dried apricot. Subtle notes of dark stone fruits and cacao. Brown sugar and light oak cleanse your palate on the finish, leaving you reaching for more.

Justin Sloan from The Bourbon Review says, “I love this series from Breckenridge Distillery, the label is absolutely stunning and the bourbon inside is as unique as the label! The nose right off the bat is super sweet with strong maple notes and a lovely clove undertone which alone is a very cool experience. Tasting this expression was a delight as well, it is delicate in all the right ways with a sweetness of butterscotch and a very clean finish with a touch of spice. This bourbon keeps you going back for more and with every taste is a delight.”

Look for the second whiskey in the series with Denver artist Alexandrea Pangburn to be released spring 2021. The Collectors Art Series is exclusively sold in Colorado as select liquor stores across the state. Find a bottle here.

4. Breckenrige Distillers High Proof [105pf]

This is our highest proof whiskey and believe it or not, the High Proof drinks easier than our Breck Bourbon. This is a winner in our books. Our Blended Bourbon Whiskey, but with a twist, bottled at a gripping 105 proof. Get a chance to experience what our distillers taste as they blend: a wild ride through rich, dark caramel and toasted almonds, burnt Baker’s chocolate and dried orange peel, with a lingering finish of vanilla and spice. A masterful combination of mouthful flavors, furnish our Bourbon Whiskey to a deep, burnt orange hue. Try slowly adding water to enhance your experience. Get home delivery

3/4 oz raw simple*
Orange wheel quartered
Lemon wheel quartered
4 mint leaves

Gently muddle mint, citrus & raw simple. Add crushed ice & Breckenridge High Proof. Stir, add more crushed ice.

Garnish: mint sprig and powdered sugar

*Raw simple syrup: 1 cup sugar in the raw, 1 cup water. Simmer until dissolved.

5. Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey Single Barrel [92pf]

Born in the heart of the Rockies, our Colorado grain-to-bottle Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is the pride and joy of our distillery. Aged up to ten years under tight temperature and humidity controls, these barrels exemplify characteristics unlike any other. Hand selected by our distillers to encapsulate the unique flavors of Breckenridge: notes of butterscotch, candied orange, sultana raisin, bittersweet cacao. Get home delivery

BONUS: Breckenridge Dark Arts: Whiskey Distilled from Malt Mash [92pf]

Dark Arts was the reason that Bryan started the distillery. A pioneering American Single Malt Whiskey, utilizing dark specialty malts and introducing them into standard malt mash. At the sacrifice of high yields, intentionally overpowering flavors such as over-ripe green apple, cacao, and chocolate dazzle the palate. We pushed the malt to the boundaries, purposefully off-balancing the undertones of bitter orange peel, angular oak, caramel, and green coffee cherries. Delightfully finishing with subtle essences of seaweed and sea salt.  Up to ten years in a combination of new American oak and used bourbon casks has developed a singular and satisfying whiskey experience.

Dark Arts, best served neat or with a large ice ball.
