Turnbuckle Distilling!

Turnbuckle Distilling was founded with the simple goal of bringing people together. The original idea
was to create an atmosphere where people could come and enjoy each other around a glass of whisky and
have a quality meal on an amazing property.

Turnbuckle distilling brings together specially sourced grains and hand-selected barrels to create a truly
Colorado whisky. Their signature blue corn is sustainably farmed on tribal lands at the base of Colorado’s
Sleeping Ute Mountain. This bourbon has notes of almond, vanilla, and dark cherry. Serve in an Old
Fashioned after a day enjoying Colorado’s great outdoors. Aged at least two years in single barrels.
The specific barrel that we at Superior Liquor selected for our consumers has been aged for 3 years and
bottled at 90 proof. This specific barrel is more unique than other turnbuckle single barrel offerings due to
a gap in the staves of the barrel that produced a more oxidized environment for the bourbon to age in
creating a more unique flavor profile. You can find notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, and dark chocolate.
Along with bourbon turnbuckle also produces fabulous gin, rum, vodka, rye, and they have even released
a red wine finish of their blue corn bourbon.

The current tasting room is located at 7655 w 108 th Ave
Westminster, CO 80021. They are also in the process of building a new facility in Littleton.
