Colorado: Not Just for Beer
The city that helped launch the craft beer revolution has turned its attention to liquor. Here are three distilleries worth a visit.

1. STRANAHAN’S
The whiskey is made from barley grown in the Rockies. Factory tours end with a tasting in the new general store. stranahans.com

2. LEOPOLD BROS.
Todd and Scott Leopold specialize in old-school spirits such as absinthe, shown, crafted in the 19th-century European tradition. leopoldbros.com

3. MILE HIGH SPIRITS
One of the only distilleries that makes vodka in all-glass stills, Mile High has a tasting room that hosts live music by local bands on Thursdays.
