Handcrafted, artisan… what do these words mean to you?

Dancing Pines Distillery puts meaning into these words for the world of spirits. We create top shelf spirits in a manner consistent with the way we enjoy life. Natural, local, high quality ingredients are used to create delightful beverages by hand. As a craft distillery, artisanal small batch distilled spirits is our passion and we produce rums, whiskeys and liqueurs. All of our spirits are distilled and matured in-house by our master brewer, distiller and blender.  Enjoy!

Our Story

If you are alone in the Colorado wilderness, the trees take on a life of their own. It doesn’t matter if it is Summer or Winter, they may be weighed down and fat with snow, or fragrant with pine sap.  The breeze starts up the valley and you can hear it travel your way. As it rustles through the pine needles… the trees begin to dance. Once you’ve experienced this phenomenon the wilderness will be forever tangled in your heart.

We translate our passion for the wilderness in our spirits, from the snowmelt water we use in our spirits to the rich grains that grow in the high plains at the base of the Rockies. We use only the finest ingredients to create spirits worth the extra weight in your pack.

We believe, as stewards of the earth, we each have the responsibility
to cherish and preserve it for others.

At Dancing Pines we do this by actively supporting charitable organizations as well as paying each of our employees to each spend 40 hours per year enhancing local Wilderness, Forest & Park areas.

Please enjoy the wilderness and our spirits responsibly.
Take only pictures, leave only footprints and get home safely.

Our Process

PROCESSWe create small batch spirits from the finest ingredients. Each bottle is handcrafted from spirit that flows out of the artisan copper pot still down to the batch number handwritten on the label. Every step is tediously performed by an artisan with passion for the craft.  We only use whole ingredients to create and flavor our spirits and liqueurs, never extracts.  Each of our unique rums and whiskeys is mashed and fermented under the watchful eye of our master brewer. When fermentation is complete our master distiller takes over to transform the spirit into a beautiful expression of the traditional.  Finally, maturation requires the patience and skill that only our master blender can give it. You will agree that our beverages command the top shelf but we’d rather you take them down and share among friends.


Finely Distilled.
