For its Third Annual Collectors Art Series, Breckenridge Distillery Partners with Local Colorado Artist to Create Label for its New, Limited Release, PX Naranja Cask Finish Whiskey
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. -- Breckenridge Distillery, one of the most awarded craft distilleries in the U.S., and winner of World’s Best Blended Whiskey, combines the art of blending whiskey and color through its third Collectors Art Series, a limited release of 96 proof PX Naranja Cask Finish Whiskey with a vibrant new label designed by local Colorado artist and muralist, Sandra Fettingis.
For this third edition, Sandra brought her iconic geometric patterns to life through her inspiration for the flavorful craft of the PX Naranja Cask Finish Whiskey, including pungent citrus fruits, while playing on the orange taste, along with the shapes inspired by stalk-like shapes. This design of the whiskey label can be found as a mural at 360 Adams Street in Silverthorne, Colorado, in Colorado’s newest arts district 12 miles from the Breckenridge Distillery.
“Proper blending is an art, not easily learned, and something I’m sincerely passionate about,” said Bryan Nolt, founder and CEO of Breckenridge Distillery. “We wanted to emphasize this connection with another type of art that people could identify with and hopefully pause for a second or two, connect the dots, and really enjoy the art in their dram.”
“Patterning and organizing are akin to meditation, which leads to a sense of harmony, stillness, reflection and inner peace—something I am always seeking in my life and art practice. That process of finding that moment where those ideas surface and harmonize is what I strive for,” said Fettingis.
The 96 proof PX Naranja Cask Finish Whiskey’s smooth aroma opens up to stone fruit and candied mandarin orange peel. The palate resonates with raisin and fig, with a background of orange marmalade finishing with a light cinnamon spice balanced by matured oak.
Breckenridge Distillery’s Collectors Art Series limited release whiskies have garnered multiple awards over the years, including: Best Blended LTD Release at the 2023 World Whiskies Awards, Campaign Innovator of the Year at the 2020 Icons of Whisky America Awards, and a Gold at the 2020 and Double Gold at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competitions.
Breckenridge Collectors Art Series 3 will be available exclusively at Breckenridge Distillery and the Main Street Tasting Room in Breckenridge, Colorado, for $125 starting June 30.
