We are excited for our First Annual EaDo Colorado Springs Christkindl Market this Saturday, December 4th from 11am to 3pm at both our HQ and at Mash Mechanix Brewing Co. (520 and 429 E. Pikes Peak Avenue). Come be a part of something new with intentions of becoming a yearly local EaDo (East Downtown) holiday favorite event.
1350 Distilling is teaming up with Mash Mechanix Brewing Co. for a fun day of holiday drink specials between our two houses. We will have hot cocoa for the little ones and grown-ups can get theirs with our Five Alarm Cinnamon Bourbon or even our Old Blood & Guts' Strawberry Vodka for something different and delicious!
Pikes Peak Lemonade will have their Tap Truck out front of 1350 Distilling. Get one of their admired lemonades and if you want to "spice" it up, come into our Taste Lounge and we will "spike" it for you!
We have limited-edition glasses to commemorate the EaDo's first event of this kind. The green glasses are recycled wine bottles made by local small business, Wine Punts. They are engraved with illustrative depictions of our EaDo buildings and the Christkindl angel. There are only 100 glasses available on a first come first serve basis, so come early! With the purchase of a glass you also get one cocktail at 1350 Distilling and two servings of Mash Mechanix Brewing Co. beers of your choice! Purchasing a glass also gets your name into a special door prize giveaway of gift cards from both 1350 Distilling and Mash Mechanix!
We are all about supporting local businesses and this Christkindl Market is a wonderful way for you to also. We will have 30 vendors and local artists located at both buildings selling unique holiday gifts. Get another chance to win door prizes from our vendors with each purchase. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Mountain Post Santa's Workshop.
We are collecting unused and unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots at both locations as well. Cash donations can also be accepted at 1350 Distilling. Donations will also get your name into the vendor door prize giveaway.
Pike Ride Bikes will have a station for you to try out their fun e-bikes. Learn about this great non-profit and take a spin on their bikes.
1350 Distilling will have all of our merchandise and 1350 Spirits available for purchase including a fantastic deal on our remaining Stars Collection Limited Edition Minuteman Vodka wooden boxes (We have just one of our Guardian Bourbon left too). The custom boxes were made in Loveland, Colorado and match the wood and finish we used for our copper-top bar. The remaining Star Collection boxes are from our very first run of Minuteman Vodka and Guardian Bourbon. They are signed by all of the owners and numbered. Only 50 were made and each box and bottle represent a different state as they were inducted into the Union. The Stars Collection typically sells for $135 but we are offering them for $100 for Christkindl. For $112.50 we will also include a new Covid Edition Bottle of Minuteman Vodka. Due to supply issues from our American glass manufacturer we have had to change our bottles temporarily. Get the new Covid bottle you can drink while saving your Stars Collection box unopened. This is a great gift for your "spirit hound" friend or family member. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.
Of course, we always offer a custom wood box with engraving included for just $50. Buy a bottle of your choosing and package it with these beautifully Colorado-made wooden boxes.
If you missed our Small Business Saturday specials, you get one more chance to get our bottled spirits 13.50% off during our Christkindl Market too. This will be our last sale of the season, so stock up and save!
We have some special holiday products available that you may not have seen yet including our locally sourced Infusion Jars and a creative Colorado Springs Hiking Advent Calendar. Local photographer, Mike Pach's "Then & Now" photo book that commemorates Colorado Springs' 150 Years is also available for purchase.
The weather looks like it should be quite enjoyable this Saturday, so come enjoy the sunshine and all of our creative vendors.
Vendors will include all kinds of jewelry, sewn goods (cross-stitch, hats, scarfs, table runners, crafts), macrame, handmade body and health products, paintings, pottery, handmade cards, dolls, leather goods, tie-dye, duct tape purses, kitchen accessories, and so much more.
Here are some other businesses you can expect to see on Saturday:
• Light Provisions
• Font and Flame
