Fodor's Expert Review Two Guns Distillery
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Home to the best tasting moonshine that may ever pass your lips, this distillery has become a magnet for Leadville's young, creative crowd. The focus here is on the moonshine and a whiskey derived from a recipe from the gold and silver boom era. Both are smooth and delicious, and form the base of some excellent martinis like Le Lucha el Contra de Gallo, a whiskey martini made with Mexican Coca-Cola, chili powder, peperoncini, and jalapeño, with a cayenne-and-sugar rim. The beetle-kill wood bar and oversize cowboy paintings make the spot feel hip and lived-in at the same time.
