Welcome! We are Fort Collins’ first distillery and home to exceptional hand crafted whiskey and other fine spirits.

We love whiskey and want to share that love with you. But first, what is whiskey? There isn’t just one “whiskey”. Whiskey is a class of alcoholic beverages that are distilled from fermented grains. Since there are many different grains, and each grain has its own unique flavor, this allows for a wide variety of flavor profiles and very different tastes that are all called whiskey. We hope you will explore and experience this wonderful diversity of flavor with us.

While our focus is on whiskey we won’t stop there. We will be producing a wide variety of distilled spirits as we experiment, play, and just basically have fun in the distillery. Many of these will likely only be available in our tasting room. So come by often, sign up for our email list, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with what is new.

Feisty Spirits has been five years in the making and is a continuation of David’s family legacy of distilling. We are focused on producing the highest quality spirits using natural and organic ingredients. Oh, and we’d like an order of world peace with that.

Whisky or Whiskey?

Both are correct. Well, depending on who you ask. Different people will argue as to why one or the other is correct in one situation or another. But despite what the guy sitting next to you at the bar says, it is typically a geographical distinction; it is common to use Whisky in reference to Scotch and Canadian Whisky, whereas Whiskey is generally used for US and Irish Whiskey.
