Release 019 is the first release in our series of Single Variety Malt Whiskey. It was distilled from a barley variety named “Alba.” We knew from the start that the Alba was going to make great whiskey. The beer we started with was richer and more fragrant, with deeper fruit aromas, than any malt we’d ever used.
The whiskey was distilled twice and matured for 34 months in a full-size, new American Oak barrel with a light (#2) char. The flavors of the Alba malt really shine through, giving rich dried fruit and dark sugar flavors and aromas to the whiskey, along with floral and spice notes.
The Alba barley was grown by Knutzen Farms, located 70 miles north of Copperworks in Washington State’s Skagit Valley. The barley was malted at nearby Skagit Valley Malting.
750ml, 50% ABV. Limited single-cask release of 264 bottles.
