Welcome summer with Pamplemousse Rosé

Pamplemousse Rosé has a slightly sweet, easygoing grapefruit taste that is engaging and approachable for entry level wine drinkers and sunny weather. With more people opting for relaxing dinners at home, the pink hued Pamplemousse Rosé, with its lower alcohol content (usually 8-10% ABV), is the quintessential couch wine.

There is a major trend in French wine with flavored profiles such as Pamplemousse Rosé. New flavor-hybrid wines now typically score in the top three aperitifs for the 18-34 demographic.

Besides a refreshing, fruity taste, Pamplemousse Rosé is highly versatile. You can serve it chilled, over ice with soda, or as a welcome addition to cocktails. Try one of these recipes or have fun playing with your own.

Based on the national drink of Mexico, this rosé variation is refreshing with a light punch.

Pamplemousse Paloma

  • 5 ounces blanco tequila
  • .75 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  • .5 ounce Pamplemousse Rosé

This next recipe will brighten any brunch and bridal party.

Pamplemosa

  • 1 ounce Pamplemousse Rosé
  • French champagne or Prosecco

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!
