Denver, Colo. ? Dec. 30, 2010 ? Whiskey has been around since the early 15th century and is one of the most popular spirits among Americans today. Perhaps you?ve enjoyed a glass or two yourself. But, have you ever wondered how it?s made? The group at Resolution Research found out at their annual Holiday party earlier this month when they took a tour of Stranahan?s Colorado Whiskey Distillery. Featured on The History Channel?s popular TV program ?Modern Marvels?, the distillery, and the adjacent restaurant, Rackhouse Pub, are churning out some of the best food and drink this side of the Mississippi. For this reason, Nina Nichols, President of Resolution Research, thought it would make for the perfect party venue:
?It?s fascinating to have a Denver establishment that produces a fine Colorado whiskey almost next door to us. The work is mostly hands-on and very intricate. We were delighted to be able to support a local business for our holiday party,? says Nichols.
Stranahan?s does all of the distilling, filtering, bottling, corking and packaging of its unique small batch whiskey at its southeast Denver facility. Tours of the facility include a guided walk-through of their brew house, still house and rack house. Tours culminate on the bottling floor where guests are treated to a complimentary taste of Colorado?s finest whiskey.
Just through the back door of the distillery is the Rackhouse Pub, where the gang from Resolution Research enjoyed a full selection of Colorado?s best beers, far from typical pub food (think beer baked mac-n-cheese and crab cake BLTs), and a creative, lively atmosphere sure to make any local proud. Nichols agrees:
?The venue is excellent ? good looking, great parking, and the food and service were excellent!?
Happy Holidays from Resolution Research!
