While in historic downtown Greeley, Colorado, it’s a must to stop in at Syntax Spirits. This brewery founded in 2010 makes a wide variety of options, such as their new Rose Gin and Heavy Rum. Syntax Spirits prides themselves on all their produces being handmade from scratch and using only local, raw ingredients. When visiting be sure to take a tour of the distillery or if possible take a class taught by the owner.
Honey House Distillery
Founded in 2012, Honey House Distillery, came to be because of a family passion for bees and honey. The founders wanted to keep in tradition, by focusing this brewery on honey spirits. Some of their flavors include Cinnamon Honey Whiskey and Red Cliffs Spiced Rum. But, the most important thing to note is that everything comes from local Colorado honey. Be sure to check out these honey inspired drinks with a tour next time you’re in Durango, Colorado.
