The next big thing in culinary tourism is the craft spirits movement. Distilleries are popping up in cities around the world.

The concept is the same – small regional producers driven with an absolute single-minded passion to their craft create some of the finest distilled sports the world has ever seen. Master distillers are turning out vicious vodkas, burning bourbons and whiskeys, gorgeous gins, and even the occasional rowdy rum.

Visiting a distillery is near the top of our list in any city as we travel. From London to Colorado, craft distilleries are where it’s at! While the destination may change, the concern for the craft is always present. Here are some of our favorite distillery experiences.
