Carbondale spirit wins national award

Marble Distilling Co.’s Moonlight EXpresso was among 176 Good Food Award winners this month — the only Colorado spirit to receive the honor.

The Good Food Awards celebrate tasty, authentic and responsibly produced food, outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.

This year’s winners are from 33 states, having risen to the top from 1,937 entries in a blind tasting with 203 judges held in September. The highest-scoring entries were submitted to a rigorous vetting process to verify they met the sustainability and social responsibility criteria to win a Good Food Awards — with over two dozen ultimately disqualified.

Located at 150 Main St. in Carbondale’s creative district, Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn is the only distiller in the world to use Yule marble as a filtering agent. It currently offers a trio of spirits, Crystal River Vodka 80, Moonlight EXpresso and Gingercello, with whiskies for future release.

Moonlight EXpresso is a complex dark roasted coffee liqueur that blends vanilla bean and natural cane sugar. Marble Distilling collaborated with Bonfire Coffee of Carbondale on the liqueur.

“What an honor it is to be included with this amazing group of producers who first and foremost believe in quality, taste and sustainability,” said founder and head distiller Connie Baker.
