From their home in Denver's historic Gates Neighborhood, Laws crafts its decadent libations. A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourdon, their flagship whiskey, is crafted from all four of the "American mother grains": corn, wheat, barley and rye. There aren't many four grain bourbons on the market as they are very difficult to make. Laws utilizes a stepped cooking process - each grain variety requires a different cooking temperature to maximize its flavor and charactermize its flavor and character. The grain requiring the most heat is milled in and cooked first; the temperature is then lowered gradually as they add the smaller flavor grains, and then complete the cooking process with the malts. This 6.5 hour, labor-intensive process is critical to capturing the character and quality of each grain. During aging, Laws strives to create harmony between this complex whiskey and the vanilla and caramel notes from the newly charred, American white oak barrels to create a classic bourbon with Colorado character.
