The Craft Distillery Tour is our flagship service. We offer 2 tours a week, each highlighting different Denver distilleries. Each tour also incorporates a ride on our beloved Whiskey Wagon and incorporates some of the best spirits-tasting in Denver. During these tours, samples are provided during the rides as well as at some of the locations – so please, have a designated driver for your ride home!

During the tour, you can expect:

  • To have an awesome time bonding on the whiskey wagon
  • A lot of tasty samples
  • To learn whiskey & liquor tasting techniques
  • To get the unique history and story of each Denver distillery
  • Alternative options for samples if whiskey isn’t your favorite way to imbibe.

About the Denver Craft Distilling Industry

Craft distilling is one of Denver’s newest and most exciting industries. Colorado has more than 300 breweries & 100 vintners, which has blazed a trail for the distillery industry. We are thrilled to help Denver natives & visitors alike get to experience this industry at the cusp of exploding.

What is Craft Distilling?

Learning and drinking on Denver's first craft distillery bus tour

Nothing like learning about bourbon inside a whiskey church. Laws does a great job of teaching you everything you ever wanted to know about the golden nectar, and then you get to put it in your happy face 🙂

Craft distilling, also called micro distilling simply references a boutique business that takes on the entire process of distilling spirits, from selecting ingredients & creating the product, all the way to bottling & labeling. As you can imagine, this also means they produce much smaller batches then the larger conglomerates & manufacturers. In Colorado, prohibition knocked-out many of these boutique-type liquor business, and it’s only been recently that they have begun re-surging.

*Parking: Generally, we recommend consulting the Best Parking site for the lowest rates:

http://www.bestparking.com/denver-parking/

Most tours start at Mile High Spirits, and one of the best parking options there is the adjacent lot (north of MHS on the left, before 22nd St.).  It’s only $3 for the day, unless the Rockies are having a game. There is limited free parking (street-side) in the vicinity too, but many are 2-Hour Only, so beware.  The tours run from 2 – 4 hours long, and most likely you will not make it back to your car in time.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Tours run rain or shine, but if Centennial Tours determines the conditions to be unsafe we will cancel, and notify everyone promptly.
