In short, Lee Spirits Company is a Colorado Springs-based distillery with a speakeasy-inspired tasting room called Brooklyn’s on Boulder Street.
It all started when two cousins, Ian and Nick Lee, had an idea to create a gin that would fit into classic cocktail recipes exactly as originally written–Lee Spirits was born. Our Prohibition forefathers had an outlaw spirit, and so do we. With one foot in the past and one foot in the future, we’re challenging the spirits industry and breaking the modern rules of gin and cocktail creation. We’re passionate about sharing our love of artisan gin and handcrafted cocktails with everyone. Our gins are created thru a process called ‘single shot’ distillation wherein botanicals are left inside the still during column distillation, which occurs for 7 hours. This style of distilling was practiced in the early 1900s for American gins.
