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.

Our exceptional, award-winning, high rye Bourbon Whiskey. Deep honey-amber hue with warm, pronounced aromas of under-ripe banana and brown sugar, with spicy notes of white pepper and toasted sesame. Light body with warm texture and long sweet oak, vanilla finish with a touch of bitterness to balance. Reminiscent of a slice of toasted rye bread with honey drizzled on it.
Preserving the essence of our raw barrel character by bottling at a gripping 105 proof, our Distiller’s High Proof Blend represents the whiskey as our master blenders experience it (for the true experience sip 20 samples at 8:00 AM before coffee). Deep burnt umber true with aromas of rich butter caramel and toasted almond paste. Medium body with a luscious vanilla sugar flavor and a long balanced finish.
Our award-winning Breckenridge Bourbon soaks up the charm of our own aged Colorado Rum casks, creating an unstoppable wave of flavor. Candied apple and cinnamon enfold, as dark chocolate and cacao follow. Lingering allspice captivates the senses, gratifying in just one sip, but mysterious enough to leave you wanting another.
Our award winning Bourbon Whiskey gets some final grooming in 59 gallon Tawny Port casks of various age for 4-6 months, adding aroma and flavor of sultana raisin and maple syrup to round out and soften the natural spicy finish. Finished in 8-10 barrel batches when superior port casks become available, each release will have a unique expression unto itself.
The Breckenridge Distillery is proud to announce the long-awaited arrival of its Breckenridge Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry Cask Finish. We’ve taken our award-winning bourbon and finished it in rare PX finish barrels, drawing out its rich flavors. An extensive search for these rare and unique barrels took the Distillery to Andalusia province of Spain. Each barrel was exclusively selected to craft our new spirit. We acquired a selection of retired PX barrels from a solera hundreds of years old and filled them with our rich spicy Bourbon Whiskey
Our award-winning Breckenridge Bourbon marinated in Madeira casks; rich in flavor, without an overpowering sweetness. Maraschino cherry with notes of plum tease the palette, flavors of smoked cherrywood and leather are quickly to follow. Finishing with a hint of Baker’s chocolate, this will quickly become a go-to delight.
Our infamous apothecary is wide open with the aromatic expression of carefully selected whole roots and Winter spices infused by hand with International renowned, gold medal-winning, Breckenridge Bourbon. A neat dram of this beauty is meant to be enjoyed fireside on the mountain
This fragrant American-style gin stays true to the Breckenridge ideals of mouthfeel and flavor. A juniper body is balanced with notes of bright citrus and complimentary spicy undertones achieved through maceration during distillation. The delicate floral notes layered throughout the profile are extracted through botanical basket distillation.
Clean and brilliantly clear with notes of lemon cream and fragrant meadow flowers. Light body with a 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 mouth feel
World renowned Breckenridge Vodka meets Turkish Chili and Colorado-grown Pueblo Chile to bring you a smoky-forward feast on the pallet.
Colorado rum with spices and brown sugar. Turbinado sugars and dark molasses, mashed and distilled in house, are aged in gold medal-winning Breckenridge Bourbon casks then finished with roots, spices and dried fruits. It would taste a lie to say it wasn’t what we always wanted.
Malt Whiskey is made from a mash of barley, and each grain is a starch packet wrapped in its own casing. The process of mashing and fermentation is designed to efficiently convert these sugars to ethanol. In mastering the Dark Arts we chose to buck tradition by sacrificing the yield of these fermentable sugars for flavors of intense cacao and smoky caramel. The Dark Arts is the reason Bryan founded Breckenridge Distillery, and it breaks the rules. Look for the upcoming release of our heavily peat-smoked variety this year.
