“a shrine to all things whiskey!”
A great whiskey, like a great story, is meant to be shared. At Laws Whiskey House our whiskey is our story. But exactly what is a whiskey house? To us it’s a place dedicated to whiskey, a temple of sorts, a place to come and explore your passion for whiskey. Make no mistake about it, Laws Whiskey House is a distillery, but more than that it is where we can educate and share everything we know and love about whiskey. Our commitment to education is such a core part of our vision that the simple term “distillery” did not do it justice. That is our story. And one taste will tell you there’s not an ounce of fiction in it. Welcome to the distillery. This is where all the magic happens. We are centrally located in Denver Colorado at 1420 S. Acoma. From our home here in the historic Gates Neighborhood we take an obsessive, hands-on approach to every aspect of whiskey production. It’s here where we mill our grains, combine them and cook them to create an incredibly complex sour mash. Here the mash is open-air fermented for four days. We then distill it in a four plate pot/column still custom made just for us by Vendome Copper Works. From there the whiskey makes its way to full sized American White Oak barrels, where it’s aged a minimum of two years.
Really enjoyed this tour. They started off with really good illustrated information about the whole process, including explanations of some of the terms used in distilling whiskeys.
We were fortunate to be able to see up close and personal the process in action as they were making a batch of Rye at the time.
They also give a sample of their 4-Grain whiskey, and the Secale Rye whiskey, along with a demonstration of how best to sample and appreciate whiskeys. Excellent for newcomers to whiskey drinking.
The cost is $10 for the tour, which lasts close to 90 minutes. You then get $10 off any purchase of whiskey or merchandise, so you can't complain about the value.
You can also do tastings of their complete range at the bar - 3 shots of your choice for $10.
I've previously done a similar tour at a nearby distillery, which was excellent, but I think I prefer this tour. Think I prefer this whiskey too.
