A panel of experts has narrowed down and carefully chosen 20 of the top craft specialty distilleries in the nation for USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards, and Feisty Spirits of Fort Collins has made the list – now all this local distillery needs, is the community's votes to help them win!

A craft distiller is actively involved in every aspect of the distillation of the spirit, from ingredient selection to bottling and labeling, often incorporating a blend of traditional and modern techniques when it comes to distilling their spirits. Many of the featured distilleries on USA Today's top 20 list are family-owned, and opt for using only locally sourced fruits, grains and botanicals - some even growing their own grains themselves. The hard work and dedication that goes into the distilling process at Feisty Spirits has obviously paid off, as they are now publicly being recognized as one of the best craft distilleries in the entire country.

Specialty spirits supporters have until 10 a.m. MT on Monday, September 12 to vote for their favorite craft distillery, and are able to place one vote per day until then. Let's help Fort Collins' first and favorite distillery reach #1! Follow along on the leader board to see how Feisty Spirits continues to rank, and stop by the tasting room at the distillery to sample their unique flavored whiskeys, small batch brandies, and other offered spirits.
