The Maven and Deviation Distilling
By Sarah Kuta
In the early 1900s, Denver's Lower Downtown, or LoDo, neighborhood was home to the Windsor Dairy, which delivered milk to thousands of the city's residents. Today, the site has been transformed into Dairy Block, a lively micro-district with shops, restaurants, bars, service providers, and a coworking space.
Dairy Block is also home to Deviation Distilling, which makes culinary-inspired gins and specialty coffee whiskeys, and The Maven, a seven-story boutique hotel. After downing a few gin and tonics made with Deviation's mountain herb, spice trade, or citrus rosé gins, visitors can tuck in for the night in one of The Maven's 172 loft-style guest rooms.
