We've enjoyed visiting the local brewery and whiskey distillery in the Denver area, so when we found a distillery in Breckenridge we thought our cousins would enjoy as well!
We started things off with a shot of whiskey. Then out of nowhere Nikki's former student walks in. What? This kid who grew up in South Dakota now works at The Breckenridge Distillery. What are the chances? And, his parents were in town too. They were bottling whiskey.
By this point we've had a few shots and I can't really remember what this thing does, but it looks cool, right?
This is where it all begins. The whiskey begins in this thing and then moves on to the copper thing above. Got that?
It happened to be our lucky day as they were bottling whiskey that evening. We got to watch how it all goes down.
Then we got a little sampling of chocolate sauce infused with bourbon. It was quite good and perhaps a fabulous topping for ice cream.
