Peak 7 Vodka makes award-winning entry into fast-growing micro distillery market
Denver, Colo - Peak 7 Vodka today announced its entry into
the thriving Colorado micro-spirits market. The event will be celebrated with an official launch party June 23 at Mile High Distillery in Denver.
The seven-times distilled Peak 7, made at Mile High Distillery, was already recognized as medal-winning vodka at the 2013 Denver International Spirits Contest March 2-3. Twelve prominent spirits professionals judged the double-blind tasting, and Peak 7 Vodka was awarded a bronze for best vodka.
"We are Colorado people who want to make a Vodka that reflects the culture and vibrancy of Denver and the Rocky Mountains," said Peak 7 co-founder Dave
Collier, "We think Colorado's the best place on Earth you can live, and the best place on earth to make great vodka."
Colorado is already well-known as a leader in the craft-brewing movement, which saw several local brews rise to iconic status in the brewing world.
Colorado's booming craft-spirits industry is following a similar trend, and Peak 7 Vodka, made with Rocky Mountain spring water, is gaining a loyal following in Colorado's micro-movement.
The Vodka, which is crafted with a proprietary blend of corn and wheat to achieve a unique balance of smoothness and taste, is available at select locations throughout the Front Range including Mondo Vino, The Austin's American Grill restaurants, The Moot House, and Enzio's Italian Kitchen.
Peak 7 has partnered with Elysium to distribute Peak 7 to the many fine establishments that are embracing the micro-distillery movement in Colorado.
"All things being equal, there are a lot of people who would rather buy locally-made spirits," Peak 7 co-founder Desi Lopez said. "We're delivering that high-end quality that people have come to expect from some of the major European brands, but we're doing it with vodka made right here in our home
