The Colorado Spirits Trail consists of different local craft distilleries all across the state, and a fun contest to go along with it.

Whiskey and spirit drinkers, this one's for you!

A collection of 61 craft distilleries throughout the state of Colorado have come together to create the Colorado Spirits Trail. As a whole, they "strive to redefine the American frontier and invite novices and connoisseurs alike to experience our innovative spirits across the Eastern Plains and the Western Slope, through the bustling cities of the Front Range, and the snowy peaks of the Rockies."

Here's how it all works: download a map, visit the different distilleries, and collect stamps. When you've collected 10 stamps from 10 different distilleries, you can present your stamped map to any of the participating locations to receive a t-shirt. Then, "The distillery will give you a t-shirt and bragging rights for having completed the first round of the Colorado Spirits Trail." 

Now, here's where it gets really interesting. In 2020, anyone who visits all 61 participating distilleries and collects all of the stamps will be entered to win 40 randomly selected bottles of spirits from the participating distilleries. For the entire year of 2020, one lucky winner will be picked each month – as if you needed more reasons to complete the Colorado Spirits Trail!
