This is one of those fun beers that comes from Marko's wild imagination... there will be more!
Marko distilled his whiskey from a superior batch of California IPA beer in 2004. Light Whiskey is distilled over 160 proof and barrel aged in old or neutral barrels for at least one day. He then patiently set it aside to age in stainless steel barrels. Trying it at different proofs, he decided 99 Proof accented the flavors best. Try it straight, on the rocks or in his signature cocktail below. The bottles are actually 1 Liter jugs. He only distilled 135 cases of 1 L 'jugs' / 9 jugs per case.
Doubled and Twisted Light Whiskey was distilled in a Charentais Alambic Pot Still by Marko Karakasevic.

To become a Master Distiller...
one must source, distill and bring to market a spirit equal to or better then what was made while apprenticing under one's master.
Marko finished his 26 year apprenticeship with the release of his own spirit: D&T, officially called Doubled & Twisted Light Whiskey
Here is Marko's story:
The term Doubled & Twisted was from the days of not knowing the exact proof coming out of a copper pot still on the second run. It’s the best stuff! The heart of the heart cut. Just after 4am, D&T was coming out of the still at about 162 proof and twisting on itself, so that’s when I took the picture that would later turn into my label.
Whiskey is distilled from beer, globally. If the final result is a 20 to 1 reduction, doesn’t it make sense to use the best beer possible? That’s what I did and I am sure the IPA beer I used, hops and all, is the most expensive beer ever used to make whiskey. The result of using a great IPA is all the hop flavors and two row malty flavors distilled over into the final spirit. The hops give the D&T a fruity, floral, very green spicy character, unlike any other whiskey out there. That is exciting to me. I did not want to duplicate anybody’s style of Whiskey; I wanted to make my own style that accents the ingredients.
It was barrel aged for a day and then bottled clear to capture the true whiskey flavors.
Jenni & I bottled 200 cases (6-pack, liter bottles). The intent is not to take over the world; just to make the best whiskey possible and take care of friends.
This item is out of stock. We expect to have a new batch made with Racer 5 beer. Stand By.
