our whiskeys


Every whiskey we create is an heirloom grain, terroir-driven flavor experience for our fellow whiskey hunters.


Bourbon

Our bourbon’s rich flavor is impossible to replicate. Not only because of what we do, but because of what our farmers do.

    Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    Four Grain Straight Bourbon whiskey

    After two Colorado family farms grow our heirloom varietals of wheat, barley and rye, our labor-intensive cooking technique brings each grain’s individual character to life, while open-air sour mash adds soulful complexity.

There are No Shortcuts to Laws.

We always have and always will distill every drop we bottle. While it aged, we didn’t sell any whiskey for our first three years. Time is as critical ingredient as our heirloom grains. Every mash bill gets its own optimal distillation process, and we deploy time-intensive sour mash fermentation. We are the first Colorado distiller to bottle bonded whiskeys. For us, these steps are not extra, they’re mandatory to creating Laws Whiskey.

  • Cognac Finished Four Grain Bourbon

    Cognac Finished Bourbon – Four Grain

    OUT-OF-SEASON

    Four Grain Cognac Finished Bourbon

    Our solera-aged, straight bourbon whiskey finished in Cognac casks starts with well aged Laws’ flagship Four Grain Bourbon. We migrate this aged whiskey to various-sized Cognac casks, adding flavors and complexity from the French oak. These casks are then married in a 50-year-old, 60 hectoliter (1,600 gallons) Cognac foeder for secondary solera-style aging. Every year we harvest just a portion of the mellowing whiskey, immediately topping up the vessel with new Cognac-finished Four Grain. This solera cycle creates a complex spirit with bright, upfront bourbon flavor followed by nuanced Cognac notes.

    TASTING NOTES:

    Stewed fruit and black tea on the nose. Flavors of spiced apple butter, toasted wood, and raisin lead to a luxurious, rich finish.

    MASH BILL:

    60% corn, 20% heirloom wheat, 10% heirloom rye, 10% heirloom malted barley

    AGED:

    4+ years total aging time
