Winter Talent Showcase Collaboration
Dante Reesman & Mile High Spirits
Dante Reesman is a newcomer to the Denver cocktail scene but has quickly been building back the kingdom he left behind in Detroit.
Reesman will be representing Mile High Spirits on Monday night at the Winter Talent Showcase and plans to bring his signature style out through their collaboration. Dante will also be calling for a variety of other local products for his cocktails, but it has been decided that they will be calling for a base of Mile High’s Fireside Whiskey and Denver Dry Gin.
Mile High Spirits’ Fireside whiskey is Straight Bourbon that is aged for 4 years in their new white oak barrels. The whiskey is claimed to be “dangerously smooth” but still maintains a good amount of character and robust flavor from the aging process. Mile High Spirits’ Dry Gin is an urban London Dry that commonly impresses Denver’s gin-drinking community. Dante will be complimenting their blend of juniper, coriander, and citrus with a compliment of his house-infused simple syrup to create a flavor profile that is sure to impress.
Dante is the mastermind and lead cocktail innovator behind his newest venture, Mobile Mixology, which is a traveling cocktail and education bar for special events and parties. Mile High Spirits has spent the last decade building their reputation among the distilling community at their downtown location. Their spirits are very well-known for their use of an all-glass still for their distillation process, a feat only accomplished by only two other distilleries in the world. Their scientific approach to the artistry behind distillation yields them the most pure, crisp, and high quality spirits possible. Stop by the distillery to check out their tasting room where they bring a laid back and relaxing atmosphere to the downtown neighborhood; they often host live music and events to pair with their house infusions and tasty spirits.
