New Releases

Pick up a bottle of one of our new releases:

  • 2017 Anniversary Whiskey – For our tasting room’s 4 year anniversary we have released two versions of the same small batch whiskey made from 5 different grains and aged in beer barrels. The barrels had beer aged in them at High Hops Brewery. The two versions have different flavors due to the barrels as one of the barrels previously had our American Roots whiskey which gave it a distinctive flavor so we bottled it separately.
  • Maniac Malt Whiskey – Almost gone! This special release is a sweet & rich malt whiskey. The Maniac releases are small experimental releases made from various types of malts. This release is limited to 41 bottles of 375ml. Only in our tasting room.
  • Bier Schnapps – the latest release in our series of distilled beers is a distilled German Porter called Master Thief from Grimm Brothers Brewhouse. The chocolate malts really come through on this and combine with mild hop herbals.
  • Hop Schnapps – our latest Hop Schnapps is distilled and barrel aged from Silent Guardian, an Imperial IPA, from Verboten Brewing. Check out this nicely balanced, slightly fruity distilled beer.

Feisty Spirits

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.
