[ Home > Spirits > Whiskey > Charbay R5 Hop Whiskey ]|
The beer is distilled in double copper alambic charentais pots 24 hours a day for nine days straight before being aged for 22 months in French Oak. The result offers a definite whiskey taste profile with clear notes of hops, fruit, and malt when sipped. Distiller Marko Karakasevic, who started such experimentation with a pilsner-fueled light whiskey for Charbay nearly fourteen years ago, says he used 6,000 gallons of Racer 5 to produce 590 gallons of the spirit.
Tasting Notes: Malty floral aromas lead into hoppy lychee and dried papaya flavors.
Serving Suggestions: Enjoy room temperature neat, with a splash of spring water or a spring water ice cube.
Alcohol: 49.5 % Alc. By Vol 99 Proof
