Woody Creek Distillers
, Basalt. You might drive past this small business without realizing that it is one of the finest vodka producers in the state, just opened in 2012. Made from fresh, straight from the farm down the road potatoes, which are harvested daily and brought straight to the conveyer belt to be washed, mashed and boiled. Most vodkas are made from corn these days, but this is the real thing Take a tour (after 4pm) and have your arm twisted to do some tastings. Neat, or in one of their expertly made cocktails. You can take the bus here from Aspen by the way, which is handy when it comes to cycling. You can also cycle here from Snowmass for a lovely day out, along the Snowmass to Basalt section of the Rio Grande Trail, and then put your bike on the bus
to get back again as they all have bike racks. Donít miss the superb Woody Creek Tavern
nearby, one of the best in the state.
