NOCO Distillery is located in Fort Collins CO, at the foothills of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Renowned industry experts masterfully craft thirty different spirits on site – whiskey, gin, rum, vodka and brandy (Eau-de Vie). Small hand-crafted American made copper stills are utilized for the distillation process while only the finest American & European oak casks age these premium craft spirits to perfection.
This premiere distillery is owned and operated by Sébastien Gavillet and his business partner, Leif Jensen. Sébastien has been in the Wine & Spirits trade since 1999… and worked in vineyards harvesting grapes as far back as 1987.
Sébastien is a winemaker, recurring judge at international wine competitions, and the head of the International Whisky Competition tasting panel. He has authored several books and has a blog that is read in over 180 countries.
Many of the ingredients used are Fair Trade sourced as well as from local merchants and vendors. Quality is of the utmost importance at NOCO Distillery as they never cut corners in their manufacturing process, and attention to detail is everything! When possible, organic and non-gmo raw materials are used. The gin and vodka are both gluten free and most spirits are also organic.
These premium spirits can be found at many Northern Colorado fine retailers. Aged Rum, Black Truffle Vodka, Saffron Gin, Single Malt, Bourbon, Rye, Agave Spirits and Brandies are a select few. Of course, you can also purchase them directly at NOCO’s tasting room. If you are dining around town, ask for NOCO Distilled Spirits at Choice City Butcher & Deli, Social, William Oliver’s, Cacciatore’s, Nick’s Italian, and The East Coast Bar to name a few.
Many of NOCO Distillery’s favorite tasting room cocktails will be available in bottles and cans this upcoming year. Currently they offer small kegs of the cocktails for restaurants, catering or for private parties.
The Speakeasy tasting room at NOCO Distillery offers an intimate and elegant atmosphere with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The regulars affirm that it is the friendliest and most social “bar” in town. Cocktails are made from scratch with their tasty spirits, and served in hand blown crystal glassware – as they believe that if the Spirit Matters, so does the glass (TM Bottega del Vino).
Speakeasy (cocktail) hours are Wed-Thurs 5-8PM, and Fri-Sat 4-9pm. The tasting room is open for bottle sales and tastings Mon-Fri 11am-5pm. NOCO Distillery is leading the way to being more socially responsible, so if you come and or leave the tasting room via Uber or Lyft, they will discount your tab by 15%. As always, please indulge responsibly.
