Distilling: Ebb and Flow Barrel Aged Beer 2020
Barrel aged beers are a thing of beauty and last year we collaborated with our sister company, The Wold Top Brewery, to release ‘Swell.’
Alex and the team at Wold Top brewed a special recipe, designed to complement the flavours of the casks used for our Maturing Malt Distillery Projects 003 (which was awarded 95/100 by Jim Murray in this year’s whisky bible). The result was the deliciously dark and rich ‘Swell,’ the first in our Ebb and Flow barrel aged series, which came in at 12% and was full of flavour and character. There aren’t many barrel aged beers here in Britain and we think it’s time that changed..!
Now we’re onto Ebb and Flow 2020, and we were filling casks, which had previously held our Filey Bay Single Malt Whisky, last week! We won’t say any more about the casks or the beer just yet but we’re waiting patiently (sort of) and can’t wait to try it in a few months time…
