The cemetery in Silverton, Colorado shares a fascinating, yet heartbreaking, history of the Soiled Doves in area mining towns at the turn of 20th century.
It has been one full year since we nervously signed our lease for the space that has now become the Durango Craft Spirits Tasting Room and Distillery (aka "the Distillery") at 1120 Main Avenue. We moved into our space on August 1, 2014 and opened the Tasting Room with our first batch of Soiled Doves Vodka on January 27, 2015. I quickly realized that we will meet new and interesting people everyday from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. I thought a blog would be the perfect way to not only preserve these memories, but also to share our stories. I will also share bits of Durango history, distilling news, cocktail creations and whatever else seems relevant at the time. I hope you enjoy the adventure with us!
Sincerely - Amy and Michael McCardell, Proprietors
