Let’s be honest, booze is a big part of the culture in Boulder County, and places like Vapor Distillery are the reason why. This local joint brings all of the character and friendliness we have come to expect in our great community of Boulder, but they also deliver when it comes to the spirits. Their Rhok Gin put them on the map back in 2007, but they began their adventure in a garage with little more than a 3-gallon pot still. The spirit soon earned them award after award, firmly cementing this distillery in Boulder County’s history.
Vapor Distillery has gone on to make many more popular spirits including their Ginskey Barrel Aged Gin, Pruf Vodka, Pumpkin King cordial, and Arrosta Coffee Liquer. You can visit the tasting room to try each of them on their own, or in one of their popular cocktail recipes, all of which are available on their website! As we move in to Fall, we can’t wait to try the Pumpkinogg!
Bonus! If you want to really impress your friends, you can buy a own barrel of whiskey that will be kept in the tasting room. So when you bring your friends and family in, you can take them to taste from your very own barrel!
1 1/2 oz. Pumpkin King cordial
3/4 oz. Arrosta Coffee Liquer
half & half
dab of whipped cream
freshly ground nutmeg
