December Client Happenings

We have reached the final month of the year and the holiday season is not slowing our clients down. From launching new products to producing holiday inspired events, our clients are ending 2014 with a blast. 

Feisty Spirits

Feisty Spirits has released four new products in the past month — Red Corn Oat Bourbon Whiskey, Red Corn Aged Elemental Whiskey, Queens Share Better Days Bourbon Whiskey and Bier Schnapps. 

Bier Schnapps is a distilled spirit made by distilling beer. To make this unique spirit, Feisty follows the same processes that they use to make whiskey but it is distilled with hops, which is typically not allowed in whiskey. This first batch was made from a sour beer from Black Bottle Brewery.

Still have some holiday shopping to do? Check out the Coloradoan’s Fort Collins Holiday Gift Guide. They have some great suggestions including the Feisty Spirits Reserve Membership.
