Woody Creek Distillers, located just outside Aspen, Colorado, is the first and only craft distillery in the United States with control over every element of vodka production. WCD grows its own potatoes at Scanlan Family Farm in Woody Creek, Colorado, and sources local fruits, grains and mountain spring water to produce its line of ultra-premium American spirits.
Woody Creek's signature potato vodka is made from only three ingredients: potatoes (native Colorado Rio Grande russet, Chepita and Lady Claire), mountain spring water and yeast. After being washed and mashed onsite at the distillery, the potato mash is then stripped and distilled once to produce its 80-proof vodka.
"On the nose, the spirit is clean and sweet. Drink up for more sweetness — hints of vanilla and buttercream — plus a silky smooth mouthfeel. It finishes very dry with a peppery kick. There's definitely some life in this one." $34.00
Peach Street Distillers is located in Palisade, Colorado, on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains.
This Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made from 60% local corn, 20% rye, 20% two-row malted barley. The grains are open-air fermented in barrels and distilled just once. The Bourbon is aged for a minimum of two years in new American oak casks.
"The nose is sweet, with notes of vanilla and oak. An initial burst of sweet, flavorful corn, followed by notes of mellow cereal, caramel and biscuits with a hint of honey. Well-balanced with a hint of spice from the rye."
Tin Cup is a local, Colorado-born whiskey made with corn, rye, and malted barley. This 84 proof American Whiskey is aged in new charred white oak American barrels and cut with rocky mountain water. It's blended and bottled in Denver, Colorado. Legally speaking, it's bourbon, but what makes TINCUP unique is its high rye content which gives it a bold and spicy flavor. The unique tin cap (tin cup) screws on and can be used for drinking. The Mash Bill is 64% corn, 32% rye, & 4% malt. The whiskey is named after Tincup, CO., an old mining town in Gunnison County, set on the western side of the Colorado Rockies and named for the old cups the miners would drink from. $29.99

This Cabernet - Syrah blend from Washington State is produced by winemaking team Charles Smith and Charles Bieler.
"Tightly focused and precisely defined, with dark berry, chocolate, and rose petal flavors on a supple frame, lingering easily on the polished finish."
Wine Spectator's 'Best Value'
Sourced from several vineyards throughout the Yakima Valley and the Horse Heaven Hills, the 2012 Lenore Syrah shows the more opulent and balanced 2012 vintage with its fruit forward attack and rounded, rich mid-palate texture. Aging in predominantly neutral French oak maintains the bright berry and savory aromatics of this wild, gamey varietal.
Pair this crowd pleasing wine with barbecued babyback ribs, a hearty lamb stew or your favorite burger. Of course she's a beauty on her own as well. $14.00
The Keeper is an incredible value; it's plush and full-bodied, and is approachable now but will age beautifully. Perfectly ripened grapes give this wine notes of savory spices, cigar box and black fruits. On the palate, a rich mouthful of blackberry, cassis and black tea commingle with a velvety, luscious mouthfeel and a long, generous finish. $18.00
