Weekly Spirits Showcase: Breckenridge Distillery

The Breckenridge Distillery is the “World’s Highest Distillery”. Founded in 2008, the Breckenridge Distillery is most widely known for its blended bourbon whiskey, a high-rye mash American-style whiskey. Breckenridge Bourbon is one of the most highly awarded crafted bourbons; 4x winner of Best American Blended (2016, 17, 18, and 2019) from the World Whiskies Awards and Bourbon of the Year in 2011 at the Int’l Wine & Spirits Competition, and 2019 Colorado Distillery of the Year at the New York Int’l Spirits Competition. In 2018, Breckenridge Distillery won the coveted Icons of Whisky for Brand Innovator of the Year.

Since coming online in 2008 and releasing its first vodka and bourbon three years later, Breckenridge Distillery has quickly become an award-winning producer of fine spirits, being designated one of the top three bourbons in the U.S. How it all came to be, however, stems from a mix of just the right ingredients, a hint of luck and a deep love for quality whiskey.

 

The Products

Breckenridge Bourbon Whiskey

This 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.

 

Breckenridge Bourbon High Proof Whiskey

A masterful combination of mouthful flavors, furnish their Bourbon Whiskey to a deep, burnt orange hue.

 

Breckenridge Bourbon Spiced Whiskey

This award-winning Bourbon Whiskey is infused by hand, with a careful selection of whole roots and winter spices. Rich, bold aromas of cinnamon and allspice meld with flavors of caramel and vanilla. Enjoy fireside on a cold winter’s day.

 

Breckenridge PX Cask Bourbon Whiskey

From the Andalusia province of Spain, a luscious dessert wine is produced from the shriveled raisins of the Pedro Ximenez (PX) grape. Breckenridge acquired a selection of retired PX barrels from a solera hundreds of years old and filled them with rich and spicy Bourbon Whiskey. Left to bask in these ripe, fruity vessels, this Whiskey emerged with complex layers of fig compote, orange marmalade, and licorice to complement the sweet oak and vanilla character of their world-renowned Bourbon Whiskey.

 

Breckenridge Buddy Pass Imperial Stout Cask Finished Bourbon Whiskey

 

Cinnamon and oak envelop the nose with a light background of fresh orange zest and chocolate. Smooth abundant caramel and dark chocolate hit the palate first as a dry matured oak and bold cinnamon spice follow and ride out for a long dry, spicy finish.

 

Breckenridge Port Cask Bourbon Whiskey

This Bourbon Whiskey has been given the royal treatment, finishing its aging process in 59 gallon Tawny Port casks. The result is a uniquely smooth and flavorful whiskey with a sultana raisin and maple syrup aroma and finish.

 

Breckenridge Rum Cask Finish Whiskey

This award-winning bourbon is soaked in the charm of Breckenridge's own aged Colorado rum casks, creating an unstoppable wave of flavor.

Breckenridge Spiced Rum

Their Colorado Rum is made with turbinado sugars and dark molasses, mashed and distilled in house. Aged in award-winning Breckenridge Bourbon casks, then finished with carefully selected roots, spices, and dried fruits. Holiday cloves mingle, while cinnamon-dipped green apples hypnotize in the background. The tasting adventure follows through to a robust dark chocolate, finally finishing with a lingering vanilla and molasses.

 

Breckenridge Vodka

Notes of lemon cream and fragrant meadow flowers create their clean and brilliantly clear Vodka. A refreshingly light body is complimented by its soft, warm texture and balanced mellow finish, displaying just a hint of sweetness. Minerality of the Breckenridge water, used for blending and proofing, lends to the perfect mouthfeel.

 

Breckenridge Espresso Flavored Vodka

Full-bodied, roasted to perfection, local decaf espresso is cold infused with their vodka and natural flavors. Earthy, roasted espresso melds with pure maple syrup to create a pronounced vanilla finish that’s not excessively sweet. Reminiscent of a chocolate and maple-drizzled waffle and a warm cup of coffee.

 

Breckenridge Chili Chile Flavored Vodka

Breckenridge Vodka meets Turkish Chili and Colorado-grown Pueblo Chile. A perfect balance of smoke and lingering chipotle spice. Excellent in a bloody mary.

 

Breckenridge Pear Flavored Vodka

Colorado’s Western Slope produces some of our Nation’s finest fruits, and they're always looking forward to the summer harvest. Fresh pear brandy is the flavor base in this vodka, a request from their favorite bartenders who had a niche to fill. Fully-ripe pears fill the palate with a clean, sweet finish. Perfect for classic cocktails.

 

Breckenridge Gin

This fragrant American-style Gin stays true to the Breckenridge ideals of mouthfeel and flavor, through maceration and botanical basket distillation. A delicate harmony of 11 botanicals layer the Gin throughout the spirit; a full-body juniper lies at the forefront, bright citrus and complementary undertones of spice give a nod to the beauty that’s created when flowery aromas meet comforting spices.

 

Breckenridge Bitters

Hand-harvested alpine herbs mingle with ancient bitter roots and spicy dried fruits in a symphony of aromas and flavors that recall the mystery of old world alchemy. This exquisite aperitif bitter strikes a remarkable balance of alluring aromatics and bittersweet flavors that will inspire the adventurous imbiber to the last sip. Best in Show at the 2014 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition.
