The 2nd Annual Colorado Distillery Tasting is scheduled to go down Mar. 14-16 over St. Patrick’s Day Weekend at Telluride Ski Resort. In honor of this drinking-heavy weekend, more than 15 Colorado distilleries will be pouring samples of small batch spirits made locally from around the state.

The weekend will kick off at the mid-mountain Bon Vivant Restaurant on Friday afternoon with Irish-themed tastings, food and games. Festivities continue into the evening and through the weekend, where participating distilleries will duke it out for the People’s Choice vote and the best of Blind Tasting during après ski.

In conjunction with the Colorado Distillery Tasting, Telluride Ski Resort has put together a three-night lodging package at the Mountainside Inn that includes two two-day passes to the festival and two two-day adult lift tickets to the resort, starting at $123 per person, per night.

Call 800-778-8581 or visit Telluride’s website to book. Tickets to the tasting are $35 per person for a two-day pass or $25 for a one-day pass if purchased individually.
