Durango Craft Spirits is Durango's first
grain-to-glass distillery since prohibition,
Our spirits are hand-crafted, mashed, distilled & bottled
in our distillery in downtown Durango, using only regional grains.
Our ingredients: Non-GMO white corn from the Ute Mountain Ute tribe and
grains from the Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, Colorado.
We enjoy sharing stories of Durango's past through our spirits and cocktails. Each of our bottles share a tale that highlights those who were important in the founding of Durango in 1881.
Soiled Doves Vodka pays homage to Durango's Ladies of the Night. One must not overlook the role the brothels of the Red Light District played in its establishment. Prostitution was a prospering industry and, due to its seamy nature, gave rise to the euphemism Soiled Doves. At the turn of the 20th century, brothels thrived between Main Avenue and the Animas River to the west. The fines accrued from the brothels, as well as the business drawn from nearby towns, provided the income necessary for the budding city to build its first schools and police department. The gains provided by Soiled Doves, despite their ignominious trade, entrenched the roots of a town that has blossomed into the community Durango is today.
Mayday Moonshine is named after Mayday Mine which lies in the La Plata mountains just west of Durango. Prohibition was passed in Colorado in 1916 (four years before the rest of the country) and at the same time the silver market took a crash causing a lot of mines to close. Moonshiners then often hid their stills in abandoned mines and made moonshine out of the mines.
