“I never really doubted that we would make it. The last few years have been difficult, especially 2020, but we have such a strong team willing to hunker down.” He pauses. “It is very different from what I envisioned at the start.”
We may have had to close our tasting rooms due to COVID-19 restrictions, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped crafting cocktails. For some time we’ve been thinking about bottling a line of ready to drink cocktails so people could enjoy a delicious Santa Fe Spirits cocktail at home without the trouble of buying multiple ingredients, measuring and mixing. It turns out Coronavirus was the impetus required for us to get from thought to bottle! In May we debuted our first three bottled cocktails, all perrenial favorites in our tasting rooms: the Mesquite Manhattan, NM Negroni and the Nut Job. For June we’ve released two new summer cocktails: the Estrella and the Conexion. We have several more in the hopper; our plan is to create a bottled cocktail for each of our spirits.This line of bottled cocktails is currently exclusive to our tasting rooms for our Beta testing phase. Once we perfect the recipes with the perfect combination of taste, popularity and shelf stability, we plan to release our RTD line for distribution.

Do you have an idea for something you want to create out of an old Colkegan barrel? Now could be your chance! We have twelve 2L barrels at the distillery that are in no condition to go into our barrel aging kits, so we’re going to see what else they can become.
Paul Flint, our distributor in Japan, forwarded us this review of Colkegan in Whisky Galore Magazine. We’re still waiting on the translation, but the 87 leads us to believe that they are saying good things about us!

Santa Fe Spirits expands to Japan
Most of the cyclists at this year's Outside Bike & Brew Festival are as serious about their finely crafted Colkegan Single Malt Whiskey, Wheeler’s Gin, and Expedition Vodka as they are about their Niner Jet9s, Devinci Spartans, and Colnago Arabesques.
Does anyone out there celebrate World Cocktail Day? Or World Whisky Day? Inane? Honored and respected? Crass commercialism? We can’t say we’d ever even heard of them before someone else brought them to our attention.
Oscar viewing and Oscar parties pretty much go hand in hand these days. In fact, actually watching the Academy Awards ceremony to see who wins has become secondary, an excuse, really, to Oscar partying itself.
