Downslope Distilling's High-End Spirits
By February 26, 2010 8:04 PM
Small-scale craft distilleries
are popping up across the country, as well as here in Colorado. The reason? Consumers have clearly shown a preference for eating and drinking locally produced artisanal foods and beverages.
Downslope Distilling Inc.
, which opened last August in Centennial, is the latest quality distillery to join the fray. The company, owned by three former craft-beer enthusiasts, is turning out a complete line
of high-end vodkas, rums, and whiskeys.
Try the pepper vodka---infused with a blend of dried red New Mexico chiles and Indonesian black pepper---in your Sunday morning Bloody Mary. Or sip my favorite, the small-batch vanilla rum made with two kinds of vanilla beans. Pour a shot into a tall glass filled with ice, mix it with Mexican Coke and a wedge of lime, and prepare yourself for a mini-vacation.
