FG-1D Rum

We at Cockpit Craft Distillery love this distilling revolution that we have experienced here in Colorado. However, we have not seen too many distilleries going much outside of whiskey.  We will eventually do everything from brandy to vodka to gin, however, we are breaking out of the proverbial box with our silver rum. At Cockpit, we are always using blind tasting panels to determine our ingredients and processes. The conclusion of these tasting panels was one of five different types and sources of molasses and three different sources of the finest evaporated cane juices. We use only the best blackstrap molasses and all natural evaporated cane juice that is non-GMO verified and naturally gluten free. This white rum is filtered after distillation for a very smooth finish. Many of our clientele have compared our rum to a top shelf Tequila with notes of maple, agave undertones with a small mint aftertaste.

P-51 Whiskey


At Cockpit Craft Distillery we are not afraid to spend more on our ingredients.  We love what the brewing revolution, that originated here in Colorado, has done! The specialty malts, the unique combinations and flavors! We at Cockpit are left wondering why much of the distilling world has not caught on, and continues to use the same old, same old, as far as ingredients and techniques to create spirits has gone? The corn we use in our P-51 Bourbon whiskey is a food grade, pre-converted, steam flaked corn. The corn has been degermed (the oil removed), thus eliminating rancidity, therefore leading to an extremely crisp, clean profile not seen elsewhere in a whiskey coming straight out of the still. The corn costs us about twenty times as much as the feed grade corn the majority of most other distilleries use. However, it’s worth it! The grain bill consists of only about 54% corn making it our “Barely Bourbon” (most other Bourbon mashes consist of about 70-80% corn on the mash bill), we then add German rye, crystal, and chocolate malt from England, American base malt, and American Winter Wheat.  We discovered this corn and unique grain bill provides us with a much cleaner spirit featuring a smoother, more complex finish, straight out of the still. Then we barrel the whiskey in Woodruff Reserve Double oak barrel with two sets of medium plus toasted oak spirals thus rendering this spirit with three barrels worth of surface area. The lighter toast gives this spirit a lighter color and a unique tasting profile with notes of fruit such as apple and citrus.

FG-1D Corsair Sweet Tea Rum

We started off with our Silver Rum, which was the first Rum in Colorado Springs however it doesn’t end there. We wanted to create a sweetened and flavored spirit that didn’t have a bunch of chemicals and fake flavors that make it like somewhat of a science experiment, or so sweetened that it tastes like you’re drinking molasses. So what we came up with is simply cutting our clear rum with a sweet tea we brew in house (made simply from tea leaves and evaporated cane juice and water) using only simple raw ingredients. Goes great on the rocks, with lemonade (drunken Arnold Palmer), or more Ice tea.

P-38 Apple Pie Lightning Moonshine

There is no technical definition of ”Moonshine” other than an illegally distilled untaxed alcohol, the TTB now allows distilleries to put the term on the label as a “fanciful name” and everyone in the industry has their own rendition of what they consider a “moonshine”. My take on moonshine is essentially an old sweet feed recipe. We take corn, two-row malt, molasses, and evaporated cane juice to distill into our base spirit. We take that base and then cut it with Colorado apple cider, allspice and each bottle contains a whole vanilla bean and a cinnamon stick, it tastes just like fall. We recommend that customers enjoy it straight, or with more apple cider warmed up to take the chill out of the fall and winter months. There is no more iconic flavor of moonshine than apple pie, so when we spare no expense on ingredients we dare say we have The Best apple pie on the market.

SOC-4 Banana Booze

At Cockpit Craft Distillery all of our spirits arrive as raw ingredients and leave as booze. This Banana Booze with about twelve bananas in every bottle definitely is no exception.  A friend of ours who runs his business out of a food distribution warehouse placed this spirit in our laps. The distributor had an entire pallet of bananas that was starting to turn brown and asked us if we could use them. This was our answer. One batch is comprised of 1400 lbs. of painstakingly hand-peeled bananas (it took three guys eight hours to peel) and evaporated cane juice. Then it is fermented, distilled through our custom built column still, then we back sweeten it with some more evaporated cane juice for a flavor we think tastes like bananas foster. Enjoy!!!

P-38 Clear Lightning Moonshine

There is no technical definition of ”Moonshine” other than an illegally distilled untaxed alcohol, the TTB now allows distilleries to put the term on the label as a “fanciful name” and everyone in the industry has their own rendition of what they consider a “moonshine”. My take on moonshine is essentially an old sweet feed recipe. We take corn, two-row malt, molasses, and evaporated cane juice, and then we make a spirit from it that tastes like a perfect combination of rum and whiskey we jokingly call “riskey”.
