Mile High Spirits, the original and only fully operating urban distillery in the Mile High City and premier downtown nightlife and music venue, is excited to announce the release of four limited edition Fireside Whiskeys: Wheated Bourbon, Port Barrel Finish, Six-Year Single Barrel Bourbon and Champions Select chosen by the Colorado Avalanche’s after the 2022 Stanley Cup win.
Mile High Spirits set out to define more thoughtful, flavored spirits with locally sourced ingredients. With a balance, complexity, and depth of flavor, this hyper-local whiskey aims to represent the forefront of Denver’s craft spirit culture.
“Mile High Spirits’ vision to expand its Fireside Bourbon offering by creating limited edition, aged whiskeys that showcase this exemplary grain is one I’m proud to shepherd,” says Mile High Spirits Founder Wyn Ferrell. “I look forward to continuing to tell Mile High Spirits’ story through our spirits made in-house.”
Mile High Spirits’ single barrel bourbons begin with Rocky Mountain water, Colorado corn, spicy rye and chocolate barley distilled in a German copper still. Every drop is carefully aged in white oak barrels at the Denver Rackhouse. This delicately engineered process gives each Mile High Spirits bourbon barrel its complex flavor profile. With notes of warm vanilla, campfire simple on the nose, dark chocolate and bold spices on the palate, the bourbon is finished with undertones of toasted sugar and toffee.
Mile High Spirits’ 5-year-old Wheated Bourbon is distilled in-house and offered at 133.1 proof. The 5-Year Old Port Barrel Finish is also distilled in-house and offered at 105.6 proof with a Tawny Port Barrel finish. The Champions Select is distilled in-house and was chosen by the Colorado Avalanche team after their 2022 Stanley Cup win. The Mile High Spirits Fireside Bourbon Whiskey Collection is available on pre-sale and sold onsite at their Tasting Room for a limited time. Bottles start selling for $60.
To celebrate the launch of the spirits’ four limited edition whiskeys, the distillery and nightlife venue is throwing a Fireside Release Party on Friday, July 21st, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Mile High Spirits will be sampling its limited edition Fireside Bourbon collection, offering distillery tours and whiskey tastings at 2201 Lawrence Street, Denver, CO 80205.
Founded in 2011, Mile High Spirits, located in Denver’s downtown Ballpark neighborhood, is the original and only fully operating urban distillery in the Mile High City.
