Whiskey vs. Beer
Ladies, gents and connoisseurs of all things good,... there’s a new Whiskey collective in town that’s set to surprise and please our Whiskey senses and that it does. Whiskey Union proclaim themselves as a creative collective of Whiskey makers, visionaries and hedonists in pursuit of unconventional blends and extraordinary flavour sensations. While the established brands craft the Bentleys and the Jaguars of Whiskey—which is all fine and dandy—the fellas at Whiskey Union choose to break with convention, experiment with flavour and tread on the sporty side of things; they manufacture well-tuned Ferraris, so to speak, to keep your taste buds on the edge and your belly humming.
Boxing Hares is the second of the three unconventional expressions they’ve released so far, the other two being Smoky Goat and Huxley. Now… who would you root for if Whiskey and Beer faced each other in a ring? Let us tell you that there are no losers here only the one winning combination. Pete Brewin, a master distiller at Whiskey Union, decided to mix Whiskey with the hops from craft beers (Hallertau, hops commonly used in the making of German pilsners; and Cascade, a variety that adds a distinctive bitter note to the American craft beers).
The result is a distinctive Whiskey sporting a creamy sweet character that is masterfully complemented by the fruity freshness of the added hops. Boxing Hares is a toast to springtime and life itself, an easy drinking Whiskey with a refreshing taste that can be mixed with a lemonade, tonic or ginger beer into a long drink or serve short & sweet with lime as a shot. Uncle Flaviar approves.
