LAWS Whiskey House 1420 S. Acoma Street Denver, CO 80223
Laws Whiskey House is a great small scale whiskey distillery in the heart of Denver. Allen Laws and his wife started this distillery in 2011 after receiving their license to distill spirits. In 2014, they were able to bottle their first barrels of whiskey. Their Straight Whiskey Bourbon is made with four grains, which is the only four grain straight whiskey that I have seen to date. 60% corn/20% wheat/10% rye/10% barley. They use Ale yeast and process their mash through an open air fermentation. During the tour you get to try day one mash and day four mash. Day one is definitely sweeter than day four. Twenty five gallons of their mash goes into the next batch which creates the sour mash. The symbol on their bottles is unique. A cross between time and process. Spirits that have a good process and take time are truly worth waiting for. Their principles they live by is Craft over Commodity, Quality over Quantity, Whiskey All Above.
Scott is a fantastic tour guide and I highly recommend checking out their facility. $10.00 gets you a tour and a tasting plus credit to their store purchase. Check out my website for information on their Wheated Whiskey Open House. This event is happening on Saturday, May 14th. Laws Whiskey Tasting Notes will also be posted on my website this month.
