Stocking Stuffers with CopperMuse Distillery

Coppermuse Distillery
, located in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado, is one of our favorite small batch distilleries to visit. They deliver an unbelievable experience when you combine the quality of the spirits, location and the amazing staff.  We bottled Limoncello back in May and the experience led us back to bottle Amaretto and Coffee liquor for the holidays. Santa will enjoy visiting adult households where there’s a bottle of Amaretto Liquor waiting by the cookies instead of a glass of milk.

Jason, Distiller and owner stayed late to give us a hands on tour and bottling experience sharing his passion for distilling spirits; vodkas, infused vodkas, liquors and up next  whiskey. We sipped on cocktails themed around the amaretto and coffee that we’d be bottling while enjoying pulled pork sliders with an in house sauce made fresh. While known for their cocktails and menu, Coppermuse also host tours and groups and we highly suggest experiencing a night of “becoming a distiller”  with Coppermuse.

Coppermuse Distillery’s inviting atmosphere draws you in for the spirits while updating their cocktail creations and menu regularly to keep you coming back. For the spirit lover in your family head down to Coppermusethis week and grab your stocking stuffers. GGG Champagne members use your discount on bottles of vodka or spirits knowing your gift will keep your loved ones warm inside while giving them perfect sips!

Coppermuse Distillery -Ft. Collins, CO

coppermusejpgGirls Gone Grape has shared fabulous cocktails with Coppermuse Distillery located in the Northern end of Old Town Fort Collins. Their mission from the beginning was to produce premium, hand-crafted spirits that include vodka and rum (gin, whiskey and bourbon in the works) that will push your taste experience beyond mainstream, corporate producers. From personal experience…they’ve succeeded! We’ve sipped martini’s and recently, had our Limoncello Bottling event hosted there! Next up for holidays, we’ll be bottling coffee and amaretto liquor in October, so watch for details over on our events calendar! You might say we enjoy Coppermuse spirits, just a little bit!

A Love Affair with Limoncello


Just like most children in the United States, lemonade and lemonade stands were a huge part of my childhood and my children’s childhood during the hot, long summer months! There was nothing more quenching than a cool glass of lemonade  poured over a tall glass full of ice cubes.  That is, until I came of age where I was allowed to taste the family “lemonade.” It wasn’t served in a huge glass over ice… It wasn’t sweet and lip smacking…But, it did have a fabulous kick that left me feeling warm and tingly! And, the more I sipped, the more tingly I got!

Limoncello, limoncello…..Italy’s second most beloved drink! A drink that has been passed FB_IMG_1462933049135down over time and has been rumored to have started in Sorrento or perhaps, Capri or if you’re family has origins in Italy, you’ve probably been told that your family created it! Most Italians have a recipe that’s been passed down the generations and they’ll swear theirs is the best, as I will attest that my recipe carried over from Bari, Italy is the best I have ever had….Hey, I’m Italian, so Continue reading “A Love Affair with Limoncello”
