Breckenridge Distillery, the official Bourbon of the Denver Broncos, announced the release of two new limited-edition Mile High Bourbon Blends.

The second commemorative Broncos Bourbon Blends of the series, the limited-edition bottles beginning Monday, Aug. 8.

To make the Mile High Blends, Broncos Alumni Jake Plummer and Breckenridge Head Distiller Hans Stafsholt (Blue) faced off with Broncos “Ring of Famer” Karl Mecklenburg and Breckenridge Distillery Founder Bryan Nolt (Orange) to see who could blend the better bourbon.

Encased in a commemorative orange or blue bottle, these limited-edition bourbon blends pay homage to the Broncos Mile High Era and include the team’s classic 1962 logo on their label.

“Last year we released our first collaboration with the Denver Broncos and the Broncos Bourbon blends were not only a hit with our Colorado fans, but the whiskey industry as a whole,” Nolt said in a news release. “We’re so excited to continue our partnership with the Broncos and bring Broncos and whiskey fans across the country our latest release of the Mile High Blends to enjoy this season.”

The first collaboration of the series, the Champions Blend, garnered recognition in the whiskey world by being named Best American Blended Whiskey, Limited Release and Campaign Innovator of the Year by Whisky Magazine at the World Whiskies Awards.

Founded in 2008, Breckenridge Distillery is the “World’s Highest Distillery” widely known for its award-winning blended bourbon whiskey, a high-rye mash American-style whiskey.
