Marble Distilling Co. spirits are filtered through crushed Yule marble, from nearby Marble, Colo. A hand-made filtration system cascades spirits over small pieces of crushed marble during the distillation process. Mother Nature’s filtration system.
3. THE DISTILLERY INN: FIRST ON-SITE/DISTILLERY LUXURY HOTEL IN THE U.S.
The Distillery Inn is the first known boutique hotel to be located within a working distillery. Guests can relax in contemporary mountain luxury while enjoying downtown Carbondale just outside their door. Walk to nearby restaurants, hop on one of the distillery’s town-cruiser bikes to see Carbondale from a local’s perspective. The Distillery Inn offers concierge services and the ability for guests to reserve the entire facility (inn and distillery) for private or business events.
4. WHY IS LINCOLN ON OUR LABELS?
“The Lincoln Memorial features Yule marble from just up the road in Marble, Colorado and we wanted to tie in the history of this area on the label,” says head distiller and co-founder Connie Baker (who also noted that while Abe did not drink, he did hold a job as a bartender). “Abe was honest, he believed in hard work and those values represent our company and our products.”
Our handcrafted spirits honor President Lincoln and the pioneering quarrymen who created monumental works of art ... because we know that all spirits are not created equal.
5. MEDALS FOR MARBLE
“MDC is thrilled to be honored by the esteemed group of judges, who are tasting our spirits for the first time. In our inaugural season, opening just over a year ago, MDC is proud of the reception we’ve received to date” said Connie Baker co-founder/head distiller of their first spirits competition season.

6. FEMALE ENTREPRENEUR REINVENTS HERSELF
In an industry where male distiller’s are the norm, Connie Baker (a spry 51 yrs.) is helping to establish an elite group of female distillers make a mark on the unique spirits industry. Baker formerly owned a medical communications company with offices in New York & Colorado. Large pharmaceutical companies were her clients then. Now, beyond having the vision, recipes, and “spirit”, behind Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn, Baker is a General Contractor by trade – and literally built MDC from the ground up.
“As I toured distilleries and worked on my business plan, I was shocked to see how much water and energy was used in a typical distillery. I love to make spirits, I want to make spirits, but I didn’t want to ruin the environment by doing it. We worked with a team of 24 engineers to come up with the first-of-its-kind WETs system (see story started above). We have been told for decades to Drink Responsibly, I pose - why not Drink Sustainably too?” Marble Distilling Co. Let’s save the Planet, one bottle of Vodka at a Time!”
