Templeton Rye Whiskey is here! Previously unavailable in Colorado, Templeton Rye has been the darling of many of your favorite mixologists. Thanks to some cajoling and pleading, Templeton has finally made it's way into select Colorado drinking establishments and onto retail store shelves, including Amendment XXI. Find out why Templeton was the preferred whiskey of Al Capone.
"When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye, or "The Good Stuff" to those in the know. Produced from the original Prohibition era recipe and aged in charred new oak barrels, Templeton Rye provides a smooth finish and a clean getaway." $44.00
We were lucky to be one of the few who received some of the first barrels of "Leopold Brothers Maryland-Style Rye Whiskey". Made right here in Denver, it pays homage to a style of whiskey that was America's most popular prior to prohibition. This style must be made from 51% rye mash and is spicier and leaner than a bourbon and was the inspiration for many legendary American cocktails, such as the Sazerac and the Manhattan. It is more assertive than the fuller, sweeter bourbon style which allows it to blend more harmoniously in simple (i.e. whiskey cokes) and more complicated cocktails. Leopold seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to distilling and their newest addition is no exception. To put it more bluntly, we think this rye is awesome. Limited supply, get while it lasts! $49.99
Batch 19. Banned. Back. Now on tap! (and in bottles)
We're proud to announce the long-anticipated launch of Batch 19 Lager! Because we're into all things Prohibition, we thought Batch 19 would be a great fit for our ever-evolving beer selection.
Here's the back story: Somebody found a lager recipe in a dusty basement dating back to the years just before Prohibition started in 1919. A few enterprising beer brewers decided to revive the recipe and the result is Batch 19, a crisp and refreshing full-bodied lager using a unique combination of Hersbrucker and Strisslespalt hops. 6 packs - $8.99
