Just Announced - The Colorado Cocktail Project & Showcase

You've read about it in the Westword and heard grumblings about it from our V.P., Mr. Sean Kenyon.

Now that it is set in stone, it's time to announce...

The Colorado Cocktail Project

This free, evening showcase with Colorado Distillers Guild will be held on Monday, Feb 7th at 7pm at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This is the launch of the first annual Colorado Cocktail Project, a one-of--kind collaboration between the Westword, the MCA, the COBG and the CDG. This is an opportunity for COBG members and affiliates to sample all of Colorado's Spirits in one place. It'll be a fantastic night that will lead up to the Colorado cocktail contest to end all contests. Fourteen Colorado distillers will be on-hand to showcase their fantastic spirits in a night filled with complimentary appetizers, cocktails and good ol' fashioned Colorado cheer.

When: Monday, Feb 7th @ 7pm
Where: The Museum of Contemporary Art
             1485 Delgany Street Denver, CO 80202
After the showcase, local bartenders will head back into the lab with the spirits they've picked to use for their own signature Colorado Cocktail. That cocktail must be featured in your establishment from March 15th - June15th. During that time the panel of judges as well as the general public will be able to try the drinks and vote online (website to be released soon). This will be heavily promoted by the Westword and will insure publicity for all establishments involved. The field will be narrowed to 10 finalists who will compete at the MCA in late June during a gala cocktail event. The winner will take home the rights to brag about the biggest prize in Colorado history...creating THE OFFICIAL COLORADO COCKTAIL.

More details will follow. We just wanted to make sure everyone marks this amazing event on their calendars.
