ADVENTURE

On a ski trip in the Alaskan backcountry, three close friends and Colorado natives capped off each day drinking spirits at a local craft distillery while meeting new friends and sharing stories about their wild adventure. Inspired by that trip, our Mythology is based on the experiences and stories we tell while enjoying great spirits with those we care most about. Discover your Spirit Animal and form your new Mythology.

Favorite cocktail to make::
“Bartender’s Choice after hearing the guest’s preferred flavor profile. Putting someone’s thoughts into a glass is why I do what I do.”

My favorite spirit to work with:
“Generally the one a guest tells me they just can’t stand, because they’ve never really experimented with different flavor profiles. That usually ends up being scotch or gin.”

Favorite cocktail to enjoy:
“I love balanced classics: my go-tos are usually daiquiris or last words, though sometimes you need a simple drink, like a rum and coke.”

As a lifelong musician, Tim was drawn to Denver because of its thriving live music scene and his love for the mountains. Tim was introduced to Mythology Distillery as a bartender at Steamboat’s Winter Wondergrass festival as Mythology was the Whiskey sponsor.

Favorite Festival Cocktail:
“A whiskey lemonade to beat the heat at High Sierra Music Festival”
