This Moonshine Tasting Room In Colorado Is One Hidden Speakeasy You’ll Want To Tour
Sometimes, you just have one of those days (or weeks) that need to end with a refreshing drink to ease the stress. It’s no secret that Colorado is home to some excellent local breweries, but they are certainly not the only delicious drinks being crafted in the Centennial State. In fact, we have some pretty stellar moonshine distilleries, including this one-of-a-kind tasting room that you will want to tour.
Tucked away in the town of Monument, you’ll find 3 Hundred Days of Shine; a Colorado distillery that specializes in all things moonshine.
This craft distillery creates and serves a delicious variety of moonshine flavors - a drastic departure from the days of bootlegging that many people associate with this unique drink.
In 1920, the 18th Amendment went into effect, making it illegal to produce, consume, or sell alcohol. Of course, many Americans did not abide by this law and still did all of the above - including making hard-to-consume moonshine in basements and hideaways.
While Prohibition-era moonshine was nearly too strong to enjoy, 3 Hundred Days creates a downright delicious product, with such unique flavors as Caramel Apple, Colorado Honey, and Margarita Moon.
Some of the flavors still pack quite a punch, boasting nearly 50% alcohol by volume! (For reference, many distilled spirits like vodka, rum, and whiskey hover around 40% ABV.) You might be surprised by just how tasty moonshine can be, as it’s a less commonly produced beverage. If you’re ready to sample some for yourself, 3 Hundred Days of Shine definitely deserves a visit.
The distillery features a comfortable ambiance along with generous samples of their creative spirits.
In addition to samples, 3 Hundred Days also offers an assortment of small plates and other various drinks, making it a perfect spot to meet up with friends.
3 Hundred Days of Shine is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
