From the distillery:

The 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company is Vail, Colorado's premiere distillery, crafting spirits from locally sourced ingredients in the name of the mountain lifestyle that was influenced my the original 10th Mountain soldiers. The patriotic men of the 10th brought diversity, courage and hope to the Rocky Mountains when they arrives in he 1940's to train just a few miles south of what is now Vail. They were part of the greatest generation of men, wanting to make each day count, and each day better than the last. The mentality they had was strong after being shaped from the rigors of mountain warfare, their egos humble. 

With this in mind, the 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company makes spirits for those that work hard and play even harder. We celebrate those that aren't afraid to put in a hard days work and those that use their hands to create something they love. 

We're passionate about creating great spirits; spirits that can be enjoyed after that hard days work is done. We love to share our passion with like-minded people, ones that appreciate the effort that goes into making something from scratch and ones that like to have a good time doing so. Raise a glass with us and enjoy the results of our passion, distilling great spirits.
