Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout
Brewery: Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Format: 650ml Bottle
Aged for three months in Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavours with a fine bourbon character.
Our exclusive partnership with Wild Turkey gives us a world class, consistent source of barrelage, allowing our brewers to explore new frontiers in barrel-aged craft beer. Since its introduction, Wild Turkey has maintained a distinctive distillation and aging process that gives it a smooth taste and a lingering flavour. They also use differentiated process whereby the bourbon is distilled at a low proof to seal in its flavours. Very little water is added to the bourbon, resulting in a full-flavoured authentic taste similar to what one would get straight out of the barrel. Wild Turkey is a genuine drink with a sought after “burn” that comes from its high proof, an attribute fundamental to the brand and critical in maintaining its authentic bourbon characteristics.
