Angelshare – 6 Colorado Distilleries | 6 Denver Cocktail Bars | 12 Weeks of Cocktails
It comes with great pleasure to present Angelshare with such a vivacious group of professionals in the spirits and distilling community. Angelshare is a genuine illustration of the culture behind the spirits and cocktail renaissance – sharing not only great spirits and cocktails, but also the stories behind them. Beginning tomorrow (January 29), six Colorado distilleries and six Denver cocktail bars will duo-up to embark on a twelve-week season of cocktails from six category variations. Each installment of Angelshare will showcase six cocktails for two weeks at a time, which are available for five dollars at Coohills, Curtis Club, Freshcraft, Jax Denver, Lola, and Star Bar. Categories of cocktails will include:
Happening Now: Mardi Gras Cocktails
Distiller’s Choice begins March 11
Highballs & Collins begin March 26
Punches & Patio Cocktails begin April 9
Flips, Fizzes, and Nogs
Previously, the six distilleries, which include Breckenridge Distillery, Dancing Pines Distillery, Downslope Distilling, Deerhammer Distilling Company, Feisty Spirits, and J&L Distilling Company popped up mock-bars for a cocktail test kitchen at The Source and Angelshare began to take form. The energy was palpable as each distiller had the opportunity to speak on behalf of their spirits with the full attention of the room, which is a convenience that is not necessarily an every day occurrence. Over the course of the test kitchen, 36 collaborated cocktails in total were built to present to our thirsty friends over the course of the next twelve weeks. Angelshare has been a project over nine months in the making with Industry Denver, which enlisted the support of Denver Passport creators, Imbibe Denver and Denver Off the Wagon. It’s an exciting time in spirits and cocktails and the venture to restore the integrity and culture behind them, has been a common goal for each of us as collaborators. Welcome to the inaugural season of Angelshare. Enjoy.
