If you are a fan of local whiskey, vodka, rum, bourbon, and gin, then the city of Fort Collins is about to add another option for your drinking needs.

According to the Coloradoan, Elevation 5003 Distillery will be opening inside the Scotch Pines Village Shopping Center which is located at the corner of Lemay and Drake. The distillery, which currently has a countdown clock to opening day on it's website, plans on opening in the middle of January.

It will be the seventh licensed distiller in the city of Fort Collins.

Loren Matthews, who is a resident of Fort Collins, tells the Coloradoan that there are plans to offer a tasting room, cocktails, and bottle sales. It will open with a bar and shelving in the existing location.

Plans for Elevation 5003 Distillery also include the ability to operate a grain to bottle facility which means that Matthews will cook, ferment, distill, proof, and bottle on site.

Elevation 5003 Distillery joins established distilleries in the city such as Coppermuse, Feisty Spirits, and Mobb Mountain...among a few others.
