See how your favorite spirits are made at these craft distilleries—tastings most definitely included.

Woody Creek Distillers, Basalt, CO

7 of 15

This brand-new distillery could coast by on location alone—it’s in the picture-perfect Roaring Fork Valley, about 15 miles west of Aspen. But even without the gorgeous Colorado scenery, people would flock to the tasting room to sample the vodka. Made from heirloom potatoes grown seven miles away, it’s so clean that most folks prefer to drink it straight rather than taint it with any sugary mixings. If you want to add adventure to your visit, book the Whiskey River tour with Blazing Adventures, where you’ll end a half-day rafting trip with a tasting at the distillery.

Tours: By appointment; $8; woodycreekdistillers.com.
