Leopold Bros. is an independently owned distillery founded by brothers Todd and Scott Leopold. Founded in 1999 in An Arbor, MI, in the mid-2000s, Todd and Scott relocated Leopold Bros. operations from Michigan to their home state of Colorado to focus solely on distilling; they built their own distillery in 2014. They use only the highest quality ingredients from family farms and orchards like the rye fields located only twenty-five miles north of their distillery, the barley growing in Colorado's San Luis Valley, the Palisade peaches on Colorado's Western Slope, and more.
In creating this classic American gin, the Leopolds sought to honor each ingredient's distinctive profile through the meticulous practice of fractional distillation, where each element is distilled individually. Through this method, they capture the brightness of Pomelos and Valencia Oranges, the savory notes of Coriander and Cardamom, and the gentle foundation of Juniper Berries and Orris Root. After completing six separate distillations of intentionally sourced botanicals and citrus elements, the distillates are blended together to become this uniquely welcoming spirit.
