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.
The definitive example of the microdistilling renaissance, Silver Tree American Small Batch Vodka is the highest rated vodka distilled and bottled in America according to the Beverage Tasting Institute.
Using our 40 gallon, hand-hammered copper pot still, so small you could literally wrap your arms around
It. (Each batch only make 480 bottles) We distill our vodka from a smooth blend of potatoes, malted summer wheat and malted barley. Then we distill this potato-grain mash 7 times. We do not filter but roughly strain the vodka. Then we hand bottle and label each bottle of vodka according to its batch.
TASTING NOTES: Clear. Delicate anise, orchid, powdered sugar and cream aromas. A soft entry leads to a dry, silky, medium-full body of wet stone, sweet cream and peppery spice flavors. Finishes with a warming, sweet brown spice and mineral fade. Nice weight and smoothness with an interesting spicy character.
Note from Todd Leopold, Master Distiller:
“Silver Tree Vodka is silky, slightly sweet and a very clean vodka. While most distilleries use either potatoes or grain when making vodka, I use both to get the silkiness from the potatoes and the sweetness of the grains. I distill Silver Tree 7 times so that I do not have to filter it, as when running any spirit through a filter, many of the nuances and characters that the larger particles lend to a liquid are lost, and you end up with a watery, flat-tasting spirit. I created Silver Tree to be a smooth vodka that has character and contributes a noticeable difference to a cocktail and can be enjoyed on the rocks.”
