Staying local is the name of the game at the Crawford, the new luxury hotel located inside the revitalized Union Station. Two of the Mile High City's top independent wine and spirits makers - Infinite Monkey Theorem and Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey- are now featured in the hotel's two Colorado curated-packages.
Six year old urban winery Infinite Monkey Theorem who uses predominantly grapes from Colorado's Western Slope has gained a loyal following in Denver and beyond. The wines are created in a 29,000 square foot urban winery located in Denver's River North Art District. Stranahan's is one of the first whiskeys made in Colorado since Prohibition ended. Master Distiller Rob Dietrich sources primarily local Colorado malted barley for fermentation and distillation; the spirit is then cut with Rocky Mountain water.
Here's what happens with the offer at the Crawford: You book a stay at the hotel and one of these packages and you get an inside look into the production and operations of the two brands, plus some great takeaway gifts.
The Infinite Monkey Theorem package, which starts at $449, gives guests overnight accommodations for two, round trip transportation to/from the Infinite Monkey Theorem in the Crawford's fancy Tesla, a private tour at tasting for two at Infinite Monkey Theorem facility in RiNo, plus a takeaway bottle of 100th Monkey (which scored an impressive score of 88 points from Wine Spectator) signed by winemaker Ben Parsons. There's more: A pair of Crawford etched wine glasses and Infinite Monkey Theorem Wine Club membership for 1 quarter are also included.
