Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated small batch distillery located in Denver, Colorado that produces world class liqueurs, whiskies, vodka, gin and absinthe. Leopold Bros distills twenty-one hand-numbered, batch-made products, all made from scratch and natural ingredients. All of our products are handcrafted, hand-numbered, small batch spirits. Among the distinctive methods used by Leopold Bros. is the separate distillation of each botanical used in flavoring its products prior to blending and final distillation. Leopold Brothers is an extremely small company with only a handful of employees, including the two brothers. Every aspect of the distilling process is done by hand with painstaking detail. Each batch only fills between 30 and 50 six-pack cases, and each bottle is numbered by hand according to the batch from which it came. This small detail tells you that each spirit Leopold Bros. produces is truly unique and is crafted by an artisan distiller rather than an industrial giant. Together, Todd & Scott “the Leopold Brothers” designed and developed a unique distillery in which environmental sustainability is a daily practice, and the art and science of fermentation and distillation is practiced at the highest possible level. Todd and Scott Leopold in many ways embody the best of the craft distilling movement, with their myopic commitment to quality and a work ethic that means always doing things the right way (even if it’s the most difficult way). Although spirits are very much a business and a science, at its heart it is a craft and an art, and it’s hard to think of better artists in this space than the Leopold Brothers.
Because it was stored next to gunpowder munitions on naval warships, Navy Strength gin was distilled to a proof just high enough that if it spilled during battle, the ship’s gunpowder would still ignite. In crafting our version of this maritime spirit, we individually distill each botanical, creating a bold, aromatic gin. The fact that Leopold’s used double the juniper with this gin is extremely apparent on the nose, which is extremely floral. Even at this high proof the nose shows off Todd Leopold’s impeccable distilling, and while strong isn’t overly vapory. This high-octane, full throttle gin is loaded with herbaceous character and tons of bitter citrus peel. This is not the standard Leopold formula with more alcohol. It’s an entirely new formula for people looking to make serious cocktails. Try it in a Tom Collins or gin and tonic and taste how wonderfully concentrated the flavor is!
