Whiskey Release III

TOP 50 SPIRIT OF 2014 - Wine Enthusiast

5 STARS/HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION - "A complete oak-aged spirit that's majestic and unique." - Spirit Journal

"What if?" In 1999, Miles and Marko became fascinated by the idea of distilling bottle-ready beer into whiskey - a first in the whiskey industry.

They soon embarked on an amazing 3.5 weeks of distilling 24/7 in the family's classic Alambic Charentais Pot Still. It took 20,000 gallons of great Pilsner to create just 1000 gallons (24 barrels) of Whiskey. 

Charbay Whiskey was made from European Two-Row Barley, grown and malted in British Columbia, which has much more concentrated flavors than the more mainstream 6-row barley. Made into beer by professional brewers. Choice hops were added just before distillation to create the floral and spice notes that Marko envisioned in his mind. No peat was used during malting; our brewers, as well as Marko and Miles, the distillers, prefer to focus on the pure grain and hops flavors.

Aged 6 years in new American White Oak barrels (charred #3 'Gator skin') and an additional 8 years in netural vessels to continue evolving without additional oak extraction. 

  • Tasting Notes: Aromas of caramel and vanilla lead to maple sysrup, vanilla, cinnamon, leather & tobacco. Lush, full mouthfeel and lingering finish.
  • Serving Suggestions: Enjoy room temperature neat, with a splash of spring water or a spring water ice cube.
  • Collectors Alert: 224 cases only
  • Alcohol: 66.2% abv(132.4 proof)Cask strength/unfiltered
  • Bottle Size: 750 mL
