WEAVER’S Spirits is proud of our charity work, and we feel fighting cancer is a very worthy cause. Mallets for Melanoma raises awareness and funds to support the mission of the Colorado Melanoma Foundation, which is to increase local melanoma prevention efforts with screening, new patient services and research.
The event promotes knowledge of sun safe behavior and the American Academy of Dermatology's self-screening guidelines. This is an issue of particular importance to Colorado, since our altitude and great weather give us the dubious honor of being the highest UV exposure state in the country. At a mile high, 26% more UV is present in visible light than at the same latitude at sea level. At 10,000 ft, around 50% more UV is present, and at the top of a 14,000 ft peak, around 70% more UV is present.
The event was an excellent time to enjoy some good whiskey while watching the sport of kings. At the event, we served WEAVER’S neat as well as WEAVER’S Whiskey Manhattans and WEAVER’S Whiskey Sours. These drinks date back to the 1880’s and 1890’s. There is reason why these drinks have been around so long, as these are classic whiskey drinks every whiskey drinker should get to know.
These cocktails taste even better when made with WEAVER’S as our whiskey is designed to be smooth and lighter in flavor. This allows the other ingredients in the cocktails come through such as the bitters, lemon and pineapple flavors.
