“This place is legit! Very welcoming and the drinks were delicious! I went on a Friday evening on 9/11/2020 because I hadn’t seen this bar before. The service was great and they stayed open until midnight! The only reason I’m giving it a 4 star is that you’ll have to wait a little while to get your drink. They had one bartender making all of the drinks but she did a great job. It’s worth the wait. I’ll be going back for sure.” – Aaron S.

“I went to Vara Winery with some friends and was delighted to find out they sold whiskey too. I have tried many whiskeys that I didn’t like, but when I tried Taylor Garrett Whiskey I really liked it. I had read reviews in several articles around Albuquerque and wanted to give it a try but couldn’t remember where to get it because the pandemic hit. So when given the opportunity I jumped on it! Excellent! It was very smooth with just enough burn. The flavors were rich and spicy. I highly recommend this whiskey. I left with my own bottle. Good stuff.” – Dave Van M.
Albuquerque Distilling is the idea of two childhood friends who have spent their whole lives in Duke City. They’ve worked hard to develop good rum, whiskey, vodka, and moonshine because they love great spirits. They developed a modern, inviting atmosphere for friends to mingle while sipping small-batch handmade booze in favorite cocktails or straight up.
