Distillery 291 is a small batch whiskey distillery nestled in the stunning foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Located in Colorado Springs, the distillery sits in the shadows of Cheyenne Mountain and the majestic Pikes Peak which both serve as constant reminders of the founding vision of owner and distiller, Michael Myers, who aims to replicate the taste, smell and folklore of the Wild West — to make whiskey with the character of that unforgettable era.
The Colorado buck, our take on a mule, is the first collaboration with a local bar utilizing a house made ginger beer. The spice of ginger pairs perfectly with the sweetness of maple notes in our Colorado Bourbon.
With ingredients reminiscent of Georgia summers, our All American Sweet Tea brings a southern favorite to the West. Fresh lemonade and tea enhance the natural sweetness and floral notes of our American Whiskey.
Hailed as Myers’ original cocktail, the Whiskarita has become a local favorite. With its versatility to replace tequila, citrus rounds the sweetness of corn in our Fresh Whiskey.
A refreshing spin on a classically crafted cocktail, the Blackberry Sour tips its hat to tradition. The froth of egg white and sweet blackberry liquor compliment our spicey, unaged White Dog Rye Whiskey.
Quoted as “An old fashioned in a glass,” the simplicity of The Decc shines through. Its versatility allows it to compliment warm winter sippers. And add a surprising spice to fresh summer coolers.
