Can you accommodate walk-in, or impromptu tours?

If spots are still available on one of our tours, we would be happy to have you join our tour.  Otherwise cannot accommodate walk-in or impromptu tours. 

What do we do on the tour? Do we get to help with bottling spirits, or anything like that?

Tours begin in our tasting room with a brief introduction to the company's history.  We'll then take you through the production area to see the steps of malting, mashing, fermentation, distillation, and packaging.  We'll be offering a few samples of our spirits during this time.  We'll return to the tasting room to try more samples.  Currently our insurance policies do not permit anyone other than Leopold Bros. personnel to bottle spirits and assist with production. 

How long is a tour?

Typically about 1.5 hours.  Please keep in mind you will spend roughly 30-45 minutes on your feet. 

I work at a restaurant/bar/liquor store. Can I book an industry tour for my staff?

Yes.  Please contact taryn@leopoldbros.com with your inquiry.

Why do you charge for public tours?

Colorado state law dictates that we can offer no more than four samples of our spirits free of charge.  As we make 20+ different spirits, we hope to provide you with a full, rich experience the first time you visit us.  In keeping with our longstanding commitment to support our local community, we donate the net proceeds from tours to the following local, non-profit organizations: Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation, Colorado Symphony, Project Angel Heart, and Outdoor Lab Foundation.

I don't drink alcohol, so I won't be tasting samples. Am I still required to pay for my tour?

Please email kristin@leopoldbros.com with your request.

Can I book a private tour?

Yes.  We will do our best to accommodate your date request if available, but please keep in mind Saturdays are typically already reserved for public tours.  Please contact kristin@leopoldbros.com with your request, and for pricing information or fill out our questionnaire here

If I book a tour with you, what will you do with my information?
