Mikkeller Black Oloroso5704048900746
REGION: Copenhagen, DNK
With our skilled collaborators of Braunstein Distillery we decided to distill one of our flagship beers: the Mikkeller Black. This 17,5% ABV imperial stout showed great potential for distilling. It was easy to decide that this was it; this is why we want to enter the micro distilling world. A great beer turned into a great spirit. Using a copper still we distill one small batch at a time. We select a small special cask for each batch to age on.
The new-make spirit is as very fruity clean spirit, where the hoppiness and the chrisp taste of dark malts are what meets your mouth, but it is still a rough spirit – therefore we decided to barrel age it! European oak has always been the finest casks for maturing whisky, especially sherry cask – and this for a good reason – TASTE! There casks gives the black spirit another level where taste of dark chocolate and taste of dark fruits and nuts come in play – A JOY for the whisky drinker.
