Mile High Sprits, a staple in the city of Denver, has moved locations to keep up with growth. Now, it’s right in the heart of downtown Denver, only a short walk from Coors Field and many other area attractions.
The new facility, located just eight blocks away from the original location, is over 14,000 square feet, a whopping 8,700 square feet larger than before. The tasting room alone received a 2,200-square-foot boost, and the patio is bigger and better than ever.
The tasting room’s atmosphere is industrial-chic, with a large bar, stage, state-of-the-art sound system and huge patio, where you’ll often find some of the city’s most delicious food trucks.

There’s also a photo booth, a pool table, TVs and plenty of options for lounging. Weather permitting, picnic tables and yard games will keep guests entertained day and night in the warmer months.
Essentially, Mile High Spirits took the same vibe they were offering before in their original location and expanded on it, only a short distance away.
"Our goal was to make the tasting room the most fun and unique place to go out in the city of Denver, but the move was not just about the tasting room. Moving locations increased our production capabilities for the brands that are already in the marketplace. More importantly, it has allowed for us to acquire equipment so we can produce products that have never been seen before,” says Owner Wyn Ferrell.
While the fun atmosphere keeps everyone happy, they’re really all there for one thing: the Moscow mules. Mile High Spirits is known for making Denver’s best version of the classic cocktail, and as of fall 2014, you can now take the distillery's top offering home with you.
That’s right, Mile High Spirits has become the first company in the world to launch a Moscow mule in a can. Called "Punching Mule," the delicious, ready-to-drink beverage is already available all over Colorado, and plans are in the works to bring it to the rest of the country over the next five years.
Aside from the Moscow mule, Mile High Spirits serves up plenty of other fresh and unique cocktails in its tasting room. Mile High Spirits currently produces Fireside Whisky, Elevate Vodka, Cuidado Tequila, Denver Dry Gin and Pegleg Rum. And the distillery is known for its top-quality ingredients, like organic, non-GMO corn and pure Rocky Mountain water.
Pairing the best spirits in Colorado with an electric atmosphere and top-notch live music separates Mile High Spirits from everywhere else in the city. It's safe to say that Mile High Spirits is creating culture in the great city of Denver, and we can't wait to see what the future brings.
