Between Miles and Marko Karakasevic, Charbay has released every category of spirit besides Gin. Some of them sold out before we could make more – you can find them here!
Pilsner Whiskey, Released in Five Bottlings
Distillers’ Notes: When my father & I distilled this whiskey in ‘99, we decided to release it in waves so whiskey fans could experience the evolving flavors just as if they were at the Distillery. Now, with 20 years of age, the hops have settled into the mid palate while the toasty richness from the American oak barrels carries the bold main body. Some want to add a splash of water, some won’t. Be ready for an explosion of spice and caramel flavors.

S Clear WhiskeyIn 2011, Marko became intrigued by Bear Republic's Big Bear Stout - a beer that you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops.

Pachanga Sunroot Spirit was distilled from Sunroots, tubers of the perennial sunflower indigenous to America. Pachanga is also believed to be the newest primal spirit in the world to be distilled in almost 200 years (the last one was Tequila). It was the inspiration of Miles & his American Spirit.
