In this post, I recap a recent distillery tour that sparked inspiration to creativity — much like a fine whiskey evolves from grain to glass. Join me as we raise a glass to LAWS — the whiskey, the art, the experience — and to the unforgettable stories waiting to be savored in each sip.

LAWS Whiskey Making – The Barrel Room

As I stepped into the hallowed halls of LAWS Whiskey House, the air was thick with anticipation, and the rich aroma of aging bourbon. The distillery, a cathedral of craftsmanship in the heart of Denver, Colorado, wasn’t just a place where whiskey was made. It was a sanctuary where stories were distilled and each bottle, a novel in itself.

The walls whispered tales of old, and the copper stills stood like sentinels of heritage, We didn’t see the milling or fermentation rooms, but the symphony of smells hinted at the future notes of oak, vanilla, and caramel were present. It was here that the dance between tradition and innovation became palpable, much like the paintings of LAWS Whiskey we’d seen, where the fluid acrylic and the precision of oils merged on canvas.

The barrel room was where we spent most of our time, talking and nothing short of stepping into the beating heart of LAWS. Surrounded by stacks of American white oak barrels, each one cradling the liquid gold that is LAWS Whiskey, we felt the hum of time passing. The barrels, charred to perfection, were crafting the character of the whiskey with every season’s ebb and flow.

The Tasting Experience

The highlight of our tour was, of course, the tasting. During the tour we sampled Bourbon Whiskies, each sip a chapter from a book of flavors. As the amber liquid caressed the palate, it told tales of bold rye spices, of soft corn whispers, and of barley’s sweet murmur. The painting itself was inspired painting to, because well, it is about the tasting now isn’t it 😃

A Toast to LAWS and the Art of Whiskey

Our tour might have ended, but the experience was far from over. I took away more than just an appreciation for a finely crafted whiskey; I took away memories, a deeper understanding of the artistry involved, and the inspiration to paint. The tour was a reminder that every bottle of LAWS Whiskey isn’t just a beverage—it’s a piece of art, it’s history in a glass where every detail matters, and every moment is a tribute to the spirit of Colorado. I hope the tour and the artwork entice whiskey enthusiasts and art lovers alike, to experience LAWS Whiskey House for yourselves.
