TINCUP was an old mining town set on the western side of the Rockies named after the old cups the miners would drink from. The name TINCUP Whiskey and the cap on the bottle are both nods to this piece of Colorado history. I've been distilling since 1972. I made TINCUP in honor of Colorado's first whiskey drinkers and the tin cups they drank from. It is inspired by, and made for, the mountains. I really hope you enjoy it; life is too short to drink bad whiskey.
