Colorado Springs/Monument Colo. – October 29, 2020 – Lee Spirits Company a leading distiller of award winning pre-prohibition American dry gin, flavored gins, fine liqueurs, whiskey, vodka and RTD cocktails, is honored to have its tasting room and speakeasy Brooklyn’s on Boulder Street named the best “overall bar” for 2020 during the Colorado Springs Independent’s ‘Best Of’ Competition.

According to the publication: This spot, the home tasting room for Lee Spirits Company, charms or confuses locals with its faux-haberdashery foyer. It keeps the bar space within relatively quiet so bartenders can give everyone a personal experience.

“Thank you to the readers of the Colorado Springs Independent for recognizing Brooklyn’s on Street,” said Nick Lee, Co-founder of Lee Spirits Company.  “When Ian and I opened the tasting room years ago, we weren’t sure if the concept would be widely accepted and enjoyed by our neighbors in Colorado Springs. This recognition is proof that our wonderful community enjoys the products we create and the environment in which we offer them. This award is a tribute to our entire tasting room staff, R&D department and distilling team.” We will use this recognition as motivation to continue to improve the guest experience at Brooklyn’s so each visitor has a one of a kind, speakeasy experience while enjoying many of the best spirits created in the United States.”  

In September 2020 Lee Spirits Company was also named best RTD distillery in Colorado by the New York International Spirits Competition for its recently launched canned cocktails.
