  • We proudly served Blackberry Old Fashioneds and Aviator Martinis at this year's Pasta in the Park, a fundraiser for an amazing organization, TESSA, who provides services and safety for domestic violence victims in our region. Legal assistance, safe houses, counseling, safe line, youth and children programs, and so much more.

  • Our Commemorative Code Four 115 Proof Cask Strength Straight Bourbon collects and donates $5 from every bottle that goes to the End of Watch - A Ride to Remember traveling memorial for fallen law enforcement officers this past year. The memorial visited us in August on their way to honor local El Paso County Deputy Jeff Hopkins, who passed in 2020. 1350 Distilling is an on-going sponsor for this national non-profit.
     

  • Did you try our spirits at this year's "Folk & Flannel" Music Festival at Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort for our friends at UpaDowna? Their mission is to provide access to outdoor adventures for all, through events and programs that empower individuals, create healthier communities, and foster a respect for the environment.
     

  • Did you catch us at FOXFEST on Oct 2? We were the Beer Garden sponsor trying to get you to drink cocktails instead. Non-perishable food was collected for Care & Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado. Local small business owners were allowed to share their goods on the field of UCHealth Park (aka Vibes Stadium). It was great to be on the field and see all of these businesses blossoming.
     

  • Who won the auctions of our spirits at the Ronald McDonald House and Carson Firefighter Association fundraisers? 
     

  • We love and appreciate music and know how it heals the soul, especially after 2020, so we were besides ourselves to serve Breakfast Cocktails at this year's Meadowgrass Music Festival - the biggest fundraising event for Rocky Mountain Highway. We donated products and a percentage of our profits directly to this great organization.
     

  • In June we partnered with local artist, Betz Smisek at the Lawrence Dryhurst Art Gallery along with Picnic Basket Catering to an invitation-only audience. The artist revealed three new pieces and asked the audience to "immerse" themselves into the artwork and share with the group. Food and cocktails that were inspired by each piece were provided to the group to make the entire experience an "IMMERSION". Proceeds were distributed to three nonprofits. The charity we chose to give the $175 collected was 719 Heroes here in The Springs. Another two events are planned for three new pieces of art on Nov 18 and 19th. 
     

  • As a participating vendor of the Colorado Springs Sesquicentennial birthday celebration (150 years old), we also donated to the great people at the Trails and Open Space Coalition, who better our mental health as a community by improving and creating more great trails and open spaces for our region. We also were donating vendors together at the Mid Shooks Run HOA Ice Cream Social this summer.
     

  • Did you catch us at the Western Mining Museum or up in Denver for the Still in the City (in conjunction with the Colorado Restaurant Association) tastings? 
     

  • We helped out a lot of local nonprofits with our #1350Spirit for their silent auctions this spring and summer including:​

  • Thanks to Kiwanis Club for using our Shooter Boxes as your thank you gifts! We are happy to partner with you and to donate our private room for your online regional meeting. Great people doing great things in our community. 
     

  • We donated rental space and/or products with the following nonprofits during the dark days of Covid:

  • We happily donated our rental space to "M.A.N. UP / Mental Accountability Network" and B.A.C.A (Bikers Against Child Abuse) for their chapter meetings.
