PROGENY SERIES No.2 ~ CASK SAVANT
COLLABORATION : CROOKED STAVE
Our Progeny Series began as a celebration of Colorado and its innovative spirit. The second edition within this series takes form as a collaboration with Denver, Colorado based, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project.
Renowned for outright mastery within the realm of brettanomyces based fermentations, Crooked Stave’s Hop Savant made for an extraordinary base to create this offering.
After two slow passes though our pot stills the core qualities of this beer were captured in spirit form. We then allow for some extended downtime in heavy toast light char American oak casks. To our knowledge, this is the very first example of a spirit born from a 100% brettanomyces yeast fermentation, and those hallmark rustic, funky-fruit brett characteristics have materialized big time!
The results of this spirit play out with notes of blackberry jam, sage brush, orange peel, hazelnut, toasted bread crust and a spectacular interlacing of funky lupulin spice; all of which has culminated in a remarkable dram that you will not taste the likes of anywhere else.
Limited 2020 release. Available in Colorado only.
