October is here! Time for more tricks and especially more treats! (Don't miss the second half of this post for all the fun that October will bring.) We had a stellar September despite all of the smoke, quarantines and record high temperatures along the Front Range. Highlights for the month include:
Released of our 6th spirit: Five Alarm Cinnamon Fire Bourbon
We are in Monument, Woodland Park and Pueblo! Total of ten new liquor stores bringing our total count to 83. Check out all of our locations online here.
We are also now in The Gold Room, Bread & Butter Neighborhood Market, 18th Century Barber Club and Palmer Lake Pub - if you want us in your watering hole, please let their management know and then send us a message!
Brand new retail displays completed by Creative Consortium. Be on the lookout for them in your store!
Donated $255 to the IAFF Local Chapter 5's Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Fund through bottles sales of our Five Alarm Bourbon
Raised awareness of the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial through three radio interviews that week of September 11th including:
My Mountain Country with Dave and Johnny
Blazin 98.5 with First Lady Productionz (video of interview)
Participated in the "Race Against Suicide" fundraiser for Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention with our families, bringing awareness to the services available by this outstanding non-profit organization. Collectively they RAISED OVER $40,000 for their cause!
Hosted Child Help Foundation, aiding survivors of child abuse - good, good people
We have the firepit rolling every night now! Just saying..
We mostly had new food trucks at our Taste Lounge this month, which we love to help with that #1350Spirit. Our list of trucks in September included:
Can't forget one of our favorites that has been here many times before: Roc-N-Ro Sushi On The Go
We are going to be busy this first weekend! On Friday and Saturday (10/2 and 10/3) we will be pouring and making cocktails at the Folk N' Flannel Music Festival and Fundraiser for Upadowna at one of our favorite customer's places, Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort.
Matt will also be pouring tasters at Prime Liquors on Academy Saturday, 3 OCT from 3-7pm.
Expanding hours! We will begin opening on Thursdays again starting October 15th! (Re)Start your Thursday Happy Hour Tradition. We will be open from 4-9pm.
Our Private Taste Room is open now! Have a party of less than 50 people you want to have us host for you? Know someone that needs a place? Contact us through our Room Rental page.
On the Spirit side, we are working on 50mL (airplane) bottles of all of our products, perfectly timed for Halloween and stocking stuffers! These will go quick, so stay tuned. We are also hoping to have our online store for outside Colorado sales. Definitely make sure you are following us through our newsletter or social media so you know when and where we will be able to ship to. We are so very excited to get this off the ground. Thank you for your patience.
WE ARE HEADING TO DENVER! Send us your liquor store of choice and we will contact them! If you let them know you want our products, that always helps.
Lastly, looking ahead to November we will be celebrating our ONE (of the longest) YEAR ANNIVERSARY! We could not have made it through 2020 without you! Honestly, our strength and perseverance has come from the continued support of this community and all of you that have maneuvered our constantly changing schedules, told all of your friends about us, reviewed us online, and chose to spend your money on our spirits. We know you have an abundance of choices in the liquor stores and we greatly appreciate you making yours a #1350spirit! In celebration of our one year anniversary and for the 245th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps, we will be releasing the long-awaited Leatherneck Whiskey! Stand by.
