The cool art and science of ice

Sep 18, 2013

We'll admit we had the idea back during the 90-degree days, but since American beverage tastes favor ice, we thought, why not? Manager of the Denver Reddy Ice operation Sean Corey gave First Take a tour of their operation.  

Although the main "ice season" is Memorial Day through Labor Day, emergencies often raise the demand. Reddy Ice donated literally tons of ice to firefighters, and when the power goes out, as it did during the September floods, ice is on the "gotta have" list.


Corey brags on the clarity and quality of Denver's water, and he explains the unique design features of the Reddy ice cube.
