From October through December 2022 1350 Distilling's Angel Battalion is donating ten percent of all bottle sales made in our Taste Lounge to local nonprofit organization Christmas Unlimited. As a bonus for you, with every bottle purchase at 520 E. Pikes Peak Avenue, you get a plush teddy bear in thanks.
Thursday, 27 October at 5:30pm will be our Kick-Off Event at 1350 Distilling. Come have a cocktail, learn about the good work Christmas Unlimited provides our community, and purchase a bottle of 1350 spirit in support.
Started almost 99 years ago in Colorado Springs, Christmas Unlimited's Mission is: To provide material and emotional support to families in need through our school supply and holiday gift programs, while assisting youth to achieve a positive self image through our mentoring and work skills opportunities.
Last year Christmas Unlimited served over 2,500 families and 8,756 children with their programs in the El Paso and Teller counties. They also work with local school districts to provide school supplies and toys for them to provide to families in need.
1350 Distilling will be collecting new unwrapped toys and other monetary donations for Christmas Unlimited throughout the quarter as well.
