Even the name is representative of his heritage, “Blue” pays respect to the Danish farming heritage, while “Clover” signifies his Irish love for fire and great spirits. The restaurant also features elevated bar food options like green chile cheese fries, homemade grilled cheese and flatbreads. The distillery is also having its spirits distributed regionally to top liquor stores like AJ’s and is available in restaurants and bars throughout Arizona and New Mexico.
