Building the Industry - Celebrating the Products


The Whiskey Summit begins with a day-long professional conference and expo to convene leading distillers, bottlers, distributors, suppliers, investors and retailers who are building the distilled spirits industry in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region.  Those interested just in learning more about distilling and the industry also are very welcome.

In panel presentations and round-table discussions distilled spirits producers and their industry partners will share experiences and ideas about challenges they face and creative responses in building opportunities for an expanding industry.  Conference topics include marketing and product awareness; business growth, technical innovation and excellence; small-scale distribution and retail alliances.  The expo further supports the industry's development, bringing diverse suppliers together with the participating craft spirits producers.

We thank all the sponsors who have helped build this program. See the list of industry leaders →


October in Estes Park



Estes Park, Colorado

Near to Denver, Fort Collins and Boulder . . .


With Rocky Mountain National Park as its backyard: Elk, deer, wild turkeys grazing practically at your feet . . . 


And early October is peak color for groves of aspen trees and elk in herds for the rut.

This may be the best time to be in Estes for the Whiskey Summit.

Did We Mention Elk?

Away from the smog in cities, our hearts are drawn west, where the only dust is earth, and the only barrier is the sky. Head west for the silence that roars from a wild heart.
