The Mikkeller Spirits Black series is the sine qua non of Mikkeller Spirits. Here the connection between Mikkeller and Mikkeller Spirits is established. With our skilled collaborators of Braunstein Distillery we decided to distill one of our flagship beers: the Mikkeller Black. This 17,5% ABV imperial stout showed great potential for distilling. It was easy to decide that this was it; this is why we want to enter the micro distilling world. A great beer turned into a great spirit.
Using a copper still we distill one small batch at a time. We select a small special cask for each batch to age on. These batches are exclusive and very limited editions. The selected casks give the different batches uniqueness in taste, aroma and color. They are all bottled without chill or charcoal for the perfect flavor.
Mikkeller Black Series is the core brand of Mikkeller Spirits; it is a permanent but ever changing concept.
This is the first version of distilled Mikkeller Black. This we celebrate by wrapping it in a beautiful black box, add two glasses and coasters for the ultimate beer brandy experience. Taste is Pappy!
The new-make spirit is as very fruity clean spirit, where the hoppiness and the crisp taste of dark malts are what meets your mouth, but it is still a rough spirit – therefore we decided to barrel age it!
The Pappy van Winkle Bourbon barrels give this something extraordinary!
The barrels give vanilla and toffee as we know it from bourbon. The gentle aging on the barrels allow you enjoy the character of the new make black spirit, but you also get the sweetness, notes of dried fruits from the barrels of this famous bourbon. The barrels only add flavor- they don’t hide anything.
