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. After three years in 53-gallon charred oak barrels, influenced by our high-altitude climate, an entirely novel bourbon unfolds.
LAWS WHISKEY HOUSE IS REDEFINING GREAT AMERICAN WHISKEY. EVERY WHISKEY WE MAKE IS ON ITS OWN ROAD; CREATING AN HEIRLOOM GRAIN, TERROIR-DRIVEN EXPERIENCE FOR OUR FELLOW WHISKEY HUNTERS.
We use grains that mass production forgot.
The soulful, richof our no-compromise whiskey begin with our use of only heirloom and heritage grains. Modern agricultural has no interest in these low-yield, finicky grains, yet we could not create the singular profile of each Laws Whiskey without them. We are dependent on the two family-owned farms – the Cody’s in the San Luis Valley and the Ohnmacht’s out on Colorado’s eastern plains – willing to cultivate these specialized grains for us.
Terroir is Our Master
Our whiskey chose Colorado. Don’t get us wrong, we think Colorado is a cool place to live, but that’s not why Laws is here. Our terroir-driven whiskey requires the rarified thin air, the hot days and cool nights of the Rocky Mountain region, and the rugged growing conditions of the San Luis Valley and eastern plains that stress our grains just enough to deepen their flavor.
There are No Shortcuts at Laws.
We always have and always will distil every drop we bottle. While our whiskey aged, we didn’t sell any whiskey for our first three years. Time is asof an 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
Our Master Distiller is a Village.
At Laws, no person has the title ‘Master Distiller.’ We believe it takes the talents, smarts, quirks and obsessive passion of every Laws co-worker, aka The Village, to make our whiskey. In the Laws Village, you are part of something so much greater than self.
Whiskey Above All.
We’re spiritually obsessed about whiskey. We dream in whiskey. Laws Whiskey House isn’t our business, it’s our religion.
