PSIA-AASI announced Breckenridge Distillery as the association’s new official spirit supplier in October during a private party with the PSIA-AASI National Team at the Main Street Tasting Room in Breckenridge, Colorado.
Born of a mutual passion for snow, mountains, and elevated alpine living, the partnership includes
an exclusive PSIA-AASI labeled bottle of Breckenridge Distillery’s Bourbon Whiskey Reserve Blend; the creation of a signature snow pro cocktail, “The Fall Line,” and the opportunity to grow snowsports participation as $5 from each bottle sold will be donated to the PSIA-AASI Education Foundation.
“The mountains are why we’re here in Breckenridge. It’s what makes our distillery so special,” said Breckenridge Distillery Founder and CEO Bryan Nolt. “The quality of the water we use in making our products, the environment, the ties to the mountains and the outdoors, and skiing and snowboarding are all key to the culture and history of what we are doing.”
Founded in 2008, Breckenridge Distillery is the “World’s Highest Distillery” and is widely known for its high-rye mash American-style craft whiskey. Breckenridge Distillery is a three-time Icons of Whisky and nine-time Best American Blended winner at the World Whiskies Awards by Whisky Magazine and a four-time winner of Colorado Distillery of the Year by the New York International Spirits Competition. Breckenridge High Proof was named World’s Best Blended whiskey at the World Whiskies Awards. Breckenridge spirits have been awarded six Double Golds at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition.
“This is such a fun way to extend the reach and connectivity of the over 21-year-old snowsports instruction community,” said PSIA-AASI CEO Peggy Hiller. “The quality of Breckenridge Distillery’s products provide a wonderful option for enjoying your après time; the PSIA-AASI branded bottles are perfect for holidays, gifting, and sipping; and each donation to the Education Foundation will help us create more opportunities for instructors and instructing.”
The Education Foundation provides resources and training for professional ski and snowboard instructors and volunteers to enhance their personal growth and further their instruction career paths.
