Goodness Happy Hour

Goodness Happy Hour

An online gathering of good people and good spirits.

Why Limit Happy to an Hour?​

The selection of wines that grace the shelves of WildPlum will leave you feeling giddy with delight! What you will encounter is not your regular wine store. Our curated collection hails from all over the world and includes hard to find varieties. Stock up on your favorites or choose a combination of new bottles to sip your way through while you are on vacation. There is a taste and price to match everyone’s needs.

Why Limit Happy to an Hour?​

Our thoughts exactly! At WildPlum we serve Happy all day long. And we’re bringing some of that Goodness Elevated to our new Virtual Happy Hour gatherings.

On the third Thursday of every month, join our team for laughs, conversation and lots of insider gossip on what’s hot in the kingdom of wine and spirits. The best thing about a virtual happy hour is that you can invite friends and family from near and far to share a glass with you.

Happy Vibes​

From the comfort of your own couch or table, settle in with a selection of wines that you can pre purchase each month and will be discussed during the Virtual Happy Hour by a special guest. Purchasing the wines is not required, family and friends joining from a distance can pour any type of wine to sip throughout the hour and just enjoy learning about new varieties and flavor profiles.

  • Native Gin 375ml $25

We will be tasting Beez Kneez featuring Native Gin. Beez Kneez Recipe

This gin uses only native Colorado botanicals, which was a difficult endeavor. Colorado is very limited in the range of useful plants, and many are elusive – several are considered weeds, and others aren’t grown commercially by anyone (until now). It’s a careful balancing act between finding these plants and protecting our wild places. (No foraging outside our urban landscapes.)

If you’re not a gin-lover, we encourage you to try Dry Land’s Native Colorado Gin—it’s a lovely experience for anyone on the fence about gin.

 

  • Heirloom Wheat Whiskey $35

We will be tasting a Rosemary Maple Whiskey Sour featuring Heirloom Wheat Whiskey. Rosemary Maple Sour Recipe

The Dry Land Heirloom Wheat Whiskey is distilled from an ancient grain grown in the middle of the parched lands of the American west. Dry Land Distillers is the only distiller in the country distilling the grain, and they create a single malt, single barrel 100% American wheat whiskey unlike any other. It has a rich, delicate and complex profile that makes it ideal for sipping straight or on the rocks. It is gently aged in light-to-medium charred new American oak barrels. The whiskey celebrates the vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon highlights from the barrel. The easy, rich nature of the whiskey belies the challenging environment it thrives in—a perfect representation of the land around us.

  • Aged Sugar Cane Rum $30

We will be tasting Hot Buttered Rum featuring Aged Sugar Cane Rum. Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

This Pure Cane Rum is made from raw sugar cane and sugar cane syrup sourced directly from a family grower in Louisiana. Dry Land gets as close to the sugar cane as they can (without being there). Rather than use processed sugar and molasses as most distilleries do, they use the sugars produced right from the cane – so it is as unprocessed as one can get. Plus, they crush the raw sugar cane itself and use it during fermentation to create a rich, vegetal nature typically only found in island-style agricole rums.
