July 24, 2019 In the Press, Accomplishments

We won! Best distillery in Santa Fe, 2019! Each year sees more competition in this category, so THANK YOU! to everyone who voted for us."For a town our size to have multiple distilleries is lucky enough, but Santa Fe Spirits' signature takes on liquids like gin with local botanicals, vodka and a smoky whiskey are also distinct and well-crafted.
