Alex Jump | Denver

An unexpectedly tropical take on the Sazerac, Denver’s Alex Jump uses the rich warming spices in Knob Creek® Rye to play off the banana, pineapple, hazelnut and coconut notes found in the two rums and hazelnut eau de vie. It’s a drink that bounces between a brisk fall day in New Orleans and summer in the tropics, while always highlighting the versatility and complexity of the rye.
