Don’t lay down the Laws, pick it up!

Laws Whiskey House is one of Colorado’s premier distilleries. Located in Denver, they specialize in making full-flavored craft whiskies and experimenting with different types of local grains.

One should try Laws at every opportunity, especially these offerings:

Four Grain Straight Bourbon

Using painstaking care and top-notch ingredients, Laws strives to capture the character and quality of its grains in each sip. Enjoy the harmony of their flagship whiskey and the vanilla and caramel notes from their newly charred American white oak barrels that create a classic bourbon with Colorado character. Bottled at 95 proof.

Farmers Select Four Grain Straight Bourbon

This single barrel bottling of their classic Four Grain Straight Bourbon is crafted grain to bottle using ingredients hand-picked by the Colorado farmers that grow their grains. This whiskey celebrates their care and hard work. Aged at least 2 years in new American white oak. Bottled at 95 proof.

Four Grain Straight Bourbon BOTTLED IN BOND

Bottling in Bond requires that this limited release be a product of a single season, using the grain of a single season, made by one distiller at a single distillery, and aged at least 4 years in a federal government-bonded warehouse. The whiskey is then cut and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). These rules are significantly more stringent than the U.S. standards for “Straight Whiskey.”

Secale Straight Rye Whiskey

Secale Rye is made with 100% Colorado grains (95% rye and 5% barley). At 100 proof, this true Colorado rye packs a punch with rich flavors and a layered complexity that refines its characteristic regional terroir.

Locally, you pick up your Laws at larger, superiorly stocked liquor stores, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that cater to the discriminating whiskey drinker, as well as those just beginning their fine malt journey.

Join us Saturday, June 15th for our Father’s Day Weekend tasting of Laws Whiskey. All tasting items will be on sale!

Race to Wyatt’s for Woodford Reserve

While some may be preparing their blenders for margaritas this weekend, the most renowned bourbon event of the year takes place this Saturday—the Kentucky Derby.

The Derby is the most famous horse race of the year, steeped in tradition, including a drinking one.

The Mint Julep, the quintessential Southern cocktail, is synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. Woodford, especially Woodford Reserve Bourbon, is the primary sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. Each year, Woodford sponsors the great race, and raises a substantial sum in charity and sponsorship for the event.

For a great whiskey weekend, place your bets on one of these entries from the Woodford collection:

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon: Woodford’s flagship bourbon is a clean, amber bourbon, with notes of dried fruit, mint, and oranges in its nose and a touch of cocoa and faint vanilla. It is rich and chewy, but smooth and rounded with flavors of cinnamon, toffee, and cocoa. It has a silky, smooth finish that is creamy with a lingering, warm tail. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon: Sweet and spicy on the nose, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked offers inviting aromas of vanilla, honey, chocolate and cinnamon with a hint of dried fruit. The palate offers rich flavors of caramel, baked apple, brown sugar and marzipan, which merge with notes of oak, vanilla and honeyed apple on the long finish. Although the oak is certainly pronounced, it accentuates the complex balance of flavors, rather than overwhelming them. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey: Specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. 45.2% ABV.

This year, Woodford Reserve is offering their classic Bourbon in a standard size 750ml gift pack that includes its own signature copper Mint Julep cup! These collectibles will put you in the spirit for the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. You can find them, while supplies last, at Wyatt’s, where we offer you only the best for your drinking experiences.
