If there can be a true expression of the art of distilling from Boulder Spirits it would be Boulder Gin, our first and flagship spirit. The recipe for this balanced, New Western Style Gin put us on the map, and earned us our reputation as a Craft Gin Specialist.
Boulder Gin is a New Western Style Gin – A shift away from the traditional, juniper heavy Gins, and toward a more artistic and inspired flavor. It’s the careful inclusion of Lavender, Hibiscus, Lemon and Orange Citrus Peel, Sencha Green Tea, Angelica, and Chamomile Blossoms along with the traditional Juniper and Coriander that creates the balanced blend of Botanicals in this truly exceptional Handcrafted Gin.
Boulder Gin is distilled, handcrafted and hand bottled in our distillery in Boulder Colorado.
When you walk into our distillery, or try one of our spirits, we want you to be impressed. We believe in what we produce, and are proud of what goes into the making of each spirit. These spirits are personal to us. This is craft distilling - not mass production. This is true craftsmanship. The art of craft distilling is not a skill one acquires overnight, and there are no shortcuts to hard earned, hands-on experience. Vapor Distillery, formerly Roundhouse Spirits, became the first legal Distillery in Bolder County, Colorado in 2007. Each and every small, handcrafted batch of award winning spirits produced in our Boulder Colorado distillery is made by hand. We first start with pure, local, Colorado Rocky Mountain water sourced from the Arapaho Glacier, then add the finest hand selected botanicals and ingredients specifically chosen for their high quality and taste. In an unassuming garage, with just a simple 3-gallon pot still, Ted Palmer, our Master Distiller, began producing what is now our award winning Boulder Gin. In fact that very same still can be seen in the backroom of our distillery. And while we have grown, that little pot still serves to remind us of our very humble beginnings.
The Distilling experience served Ted well during his Navy tour as a mine field navigator, where he became “The man to go to for a drink”. He made ship-board Bilge Wine, and needless to say a whole lot of friends in the process.
After leaving the Navy, Ted took a brewing job in Washington, and worked his way up quickly, learning a lot along the way about brewing, making beer, and developing a reputation for his damn fine palate for beer and Spirit tasting. His knowledge of the processes of distilling and brewing led to his being sought out for advice on start-up distilleries and breweries.
Ted began distilling with Vapor Distillery (Then Roundhouse Spirits) where he started working on new Gin recipes. Ted has always been a Gin connoisseur, but he wanted to create a new taste. - That recipe eventually became his award-winning, New Western Style Rhok Gin. After that came Ginskey – A Barrel Aged Gin that was recently given the title of “World’s Best Cask Gin” and Double Gold at the prestigious 2015 World Gin Awards in London England. Currently Ted is fine-tuning his recipes for a Navy Strength, a Genever, and a Traditional Dry Gin to add to the Vapor Distillery brand.
