The Barley Wine was a huge beer we brewed to celebrate our 600th Gyle (brew). It was brewed over summer 2021 and laid to rest, maturing in bottles to allow flavours to mature and mellow.
The Barrel-aged barley wine was aged in oak bourbon barrels from Heaven Hills Distillery in Kentucky.
Expect a body of luxurious smooth caramel, intense malt & dried fruit flavours, and a hint of nutty umami on the palate. The barrel-aged version takes on additional flavours of oak and vanilla from the barrel, before offering a delectable warming alcohol finish.
The strength of a North American Barley Wine but with the malt flavours and mouthfeel of an old English classic. Like the finest Christmas Pudd enjoyed in your favourite woollen pullover beside a crackling, roaring fireplace, curtains drawn and fairy lights twinkling. The ultimate winter warmer.
