Downtown #Strongmont Business of the Day
Longtucky Spirits is a whiskey and rum distillery brought to you by your friends at Abbott and Wallace. They opened their doors in Downtown Longmont at 4th Ave. & Terry St. in 2017! They are Colorado’s only distillery canning ultra premium cocktails from hyper-local ingredients. Oh, and they have an award winning Gin and Amaro too. Longtucky is a celebration of Longmont’s agricultural history and handcrafted culture. Support them today by following them on Facebook and Instagram or visit their website to order your own spirits for pickup or delivery during this time.

Q & A with John Young and HK Wallace, Owners
Q: Why you decided to open in Downtown Longmont.
A: Longmont opened its doors to us. We found homes here and great site for our distillery. We recognized Longmont as a family community that placed a high value on local craft products. Like the Longmont community itself, “handcrafted” means something different at Longtucky. Owner-built equipment, locally sourced ingredients, and transparent processing blends with our values of community and family for one-of-a-kind spirits and cocktails.
Q: How can your customers make Longtucky Spirits their own favorite place, and how can they take ownership of supporting you during this time?
A: Although our community tasting room is closed right now, we offer online orders for all our bottles of rum, bourbon whiskey, gin, and more, plus our new canned cocktails (Steamboat Spritz, Caribbean Queen, Longtucky Julep, and Gina Tonic)! You can place an order for pickup or delivery. It's easy! Visit our website to order. Our canned mixed drinks pair nicely with many of Downtown restaurants offering tasty takeout and delivery! Create your own picnic!
As soon as the pandemic happened, we began creating cleaning sanitizer for our first responders and local residents. Please stop by with a container Tues-Sat 2-7pm. Families can get 500ml per week and one gallon for medical workers for free! This is not "hand sanitizer" but 80% alcohol solution that is great for spray cleaning.
We are currently holding an Indiegogo $10,000 COVID fundraiser to help us manage through restrictions of this pandemic. The community has been very supportive by shopping local and purchasing our bottles of spirits. But, bottle sales cannot replace the vibrant atmosphere of our tasting room and the delicious cocktails that generate most of our revenue. Proceeds from this fundraiser will allow us to pay employees, keep the landlord happy, maintain our professional relationships and purchase the materials necessary to release our Bourbon and Rye this summer. With a little help we can survive this pandemic and be prepared for the future. Thanks for your support!
During the Stay at Home order, we'll be featuring a different Downtown Longmont business each day. These small businesses are the heartbeat of our community and are a big reason why this is such a great place to live, work, and play. This is a difficult time for everyone, and small businesses and their owners and employees are no exception.
There are many ways you can support our local small businesses during this time, from liking, following, and sharing their content on social media, to making online or over-the-phone purchases of products or gift cards. You can also donate to the Strongmont Fund, created to support local Longmont businesses negatively affected by COVID-19.
