Why do Whiskey and Bluegrass Pair so Well?

Bluegrass instrumentsBoth Colorado whiskey and bluegrass come from Irish, Scottish heritage, mixed with an all-American flair.

La Tour uses Colorado Whiskey in the featured cocktail, which is set apart by the Rocky Mountain-sourced water used in distilling.

Bluegrass music is related to traditional country music. However, bluegrass is influenced by the music of Appalachia, and Irish/Scottish/Welsh/English traditional music. More recently, bluegrass incorporated jazz elements as well.

Also unlike mainstream country music, bluegrass is traditionally played on acoustic stringed instruments. At Vail Summer Bluegrass concerts you will be sure to hear the banjo, guitar, string bass, fiddle, harmonica, mandolin, and resonator guitar.
