Chef JP Krause, Owner of @SquealRum was featured in the Summer 2016 issue of Thirst Colorado Magazine. Both a Colorado Native and a Denver Socialite, JP is changing the future of Craft Spirits.
“JP Krause is more than willing to talk about his award-winning Squeal Rum that is made in Denver. But he and his wife Monika have a lot more to think about than rum, such as their two children, trips to the Denver Zoo, traveling, and being a “ballet dad”, says JP, a member of the Colorado Chef’s Association. “My wife and I are big on family and we run the business together.”
With a background in hospitality and as a chef at a local hospital, “you taste things differently than if you were a bartender,” he says. “I thought it would be fun to create a brand that brings balanced culinary flavors to a spirit in a fun way.”
As bust as life is, JP still as hopes to steal a few minutes to squeeze in a vacation. You might see the Krauses boarding a jet for Poland, where they have family, or Cuba, “before commercial hotel chains take over.”
