Tempest The Old Fashioned
Style : Double IPA-ish
ABV : 9.5%
Bottle Size : 330ml
An American original reimagined. Sit yourself down at the bar, and sip on our rye imperial pale ale aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. For our latest barrel aged concoction, we decided to pay homage to one of the original, classy cocktails that would truly test our ability to balance flavours. What's more, it's in 660ml bottles and hand labelled and wax dipped for that extra touch.
The Old Fashioned takes our well-loved orange and ginger double IPA, and infuses it with the smooth, warming, vanilla character of Heaven Hill’s famous Kentucky straight bourbon. Sweet and rich on the nose, you’ll likely be surprised at just how reminiscent of its namesake it is. The vanilla and oak from the barrel brings out the sweeter notes in the orange and ginger on the palate, but the hops give that distinct bitterness you’d expect in the cocktail itself and a lasting warmth in the finish. It has also been conditioned in bottle, allowing it to develop a rich, smooth texture that goes down a treat.
This has a pale ale base with lots of hops and citrus fruits; you want to taste the freshness. It is not for extended maturation. Despite its bottle conditioning, it will not benefit from extended aging, as we have matured it in barrels already.
