Bear Beer meets Whiskey.
Charbay is a small distillery from Napa County, nestled in the heart of California wine country. The family prides itself on being one of the early pioneers of the modern American craft spirits movement. They began distilling in 1983 after their founder Miles Karakasevic emigrated to the US and haven’t looked back, carrying on the family’s heritage of fermenting & distilling that dates back to 18th century Balkans. Miles is already a 12th generation master distiller. He knows a thing or two about crafting a decent Spirit — decent being the understatement of the year.
Their product line includes a whole range of different brews, from Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, and Whiskey. The Karakasevic family is set on constant innovation and modification when it comes to the production of Spirits. Their Whiskey line is especially interesting since they manufacture their firewater from bottle-ready, fully matured beer. This interesting peculiarity was conceived by Miles’ son Marko, who is the main master distiller at Charbay nowadays.
While most people drank Beer in high school, Marko was distilling it. Now, Marko took his favorite Beer, Racer 5 IPA from Bear Republic, and distilled it into an intriguing Whiskey. Charbay Doubled And Twisted Lot No. 2 Whiskey is the love child of 4 years of extensive research and close cooperation with the Bear family. The Whiskey blend is aged in French and American oak, which means the final juice releases complex flavors from smoky, toasted vanilla to dark roasted coffee.
