Peak Spirits is based at 70-acre Jack Rabbit Hill, a sprawling farm that holds a vineyard, 11 acres of hops, cows, sheeps, chickens—and a still shed, where CapRock gin, vodka, and brandies are produced. You can find these spirits at local liquor stores, or you can stop by the distillery’s CapRock Farm Bar, which is located inside the Source in Denver. This cocktail features a whiskey made in collaboration with Wynkoop Brewing Company.
