Los Alamos Country attracts visitors every year because of the natural beauty, historical sites and innovative laboratory, but there is now another reason for tourists to make a visit.
Don Quixote Distillery and Winery was recently ranked in the “Top Five Distilleries Worth the Road Trip,” by The Boys Club, an online cocktail resource and publication.
Joining Don Quixote on the must-visit list include legendary distilleries such as Maker’s Mark, Journeyman, Corsair and FEW Spirits.
“It is an honor that this distillery critic considers our spirits to be on the same level as these world-renown companies,” co-owner Ron Dolin said.
The company’s flagship products are the Blue Corn Vodka and Blue Corn Bourbon, both of which are the only in the world and made from organic New Mexican blue corn.
Their spirits have won numerous awards and been featured on national programs including Martha Stewart Living, The Huffington Post and Playboy.
Dolin, a trained engineer designs and builds the stills, and his wife, Olha, manages production and the two showrooms.
Don Quixote is located in White Rock off N.M. 4 in Pajarito Acres and open noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Its second showroom is in Pojoaque in the Line Camp building and is open noon. to 6 p.m. everyday.
