On Sunday, September 25, Westword's DISH, our annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, returns for its 22nd year. The festival of food will take over Sculpture Park at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, where dozens of local restaurants will offer samples of their best dishes. Brews from DISH beer sponsor Stella Artois will be on tap along with samples from local artisans, including Golden Moon Distillery.
Golden Moon was founded in Golden in 2008 and produces a range of traditionally made herbal liquors and liqueurs as well as gin, absinthe, grappa, apple jack, single-malt whiskey, bourbon and rye. The company also operates Golden Moon Speakeasy in downtown Golden, serving a wide range of cocktails made entirely from the distillery's own spirits. Golden Moon will be mixing up its Violet Gin & Tonic and Gun Fighter Rye Whiskey Punch.
