This month we are going with a "Four Grain" Bourbon from Denver! We really enjoyed the layers of flavor in this Bourbon.
47.5% ABV"A four grain Bourbon must follow all the rules of a Bourbon, but it contains all three typical flavor grains that accentuate the corn base: barley, wheat and rye. To achieve such an uncommon expression of bourbon takes skill. These four “American mother grains” are painstakingly combined in exacting ratio in our cooker coming together to create a highly complex and flavorful whiskey. The results showcase the flavor of each grain without compromising balance.
We slowly distill our four grain sour mash to coax out the delicate spirit. Whiskey with this level of character can only be made by hand. Again, no shortcuts. Yes, Four Grain Straight Bourbon is a more difficult whiskey to make, but it is well worth it."
"Laws Whiskey House is a fiercely independent Colorado distillery committed to producing the highest quality whiskey using local ingredients. We are guided by three simple principles: CRAFT OVER COMMODITY – QUALITY OVER QUANTITY – WHISKEY ABOVE ALL.® Al Laws took concepts from paper in 2006, to production in 2011; in October 2014, Laws brought whiskey to glass, harvesting only when the whiskey said it was ready. Today the Laws team of dedicated craftsmen employ the same “no-compromise, no shortcuts” approach to making a growing family of high-quality, authentic, award-winning American whiskeys that capture the character of Colorado and the people that make it."
"Every drop of whiskey we sell is made 100% from grain to bottle at our distillery located in Denver, Colorado. We have never sourced one drop of whiskey and we never will. We let American whiskey’s four mother grains inspire us to not only create our four grain straight bourbon, but also to break each grain out into its own expression, showcasing its contribution to the bourbon.” — Al Laws
The main reason to create a “Club,” is simple: when we get in cool whiskeys it seems they are bought up extremely quickly, often before our core group of customers can buy any. We want to create a more easy-going, less time-sensitive shopping opportunity for our customers.
I also want to showcase authentic "craft" whiskey from people that are actually distilling it. Sourced Whiskeys of course may be a part of the club in the future, if they are good!
This is the way it works. . . You will sign up to be a part of the Club with a purchase of this month’s selection (it will be shipped immediately). You only have to do this once! On the 20th of the next month, and any subsequent months, you will receive that “Whiskey of the Month” automatically. We will have one Whiskey on offer each month, and I expect the price for these whiskeys to be in the $40-$100 price range. We intend to announce the whiskey at least a week in advance, ideally two weeks in advance. You will be able to skip a purchase if you want, or cancel at any time. The date of “execution” for the Club membership will be the 20th of each month.
