Story behind the scenes;
Spirit Lab - Malt Edition makes use of excess craft beer from the pandemic.
Like many breweries Bright Brewery had excess beer from the impact of the pandemic, so we jumped at the oppoutrtunity to collaborate with them.
Hamish and Reid (brewer) worked closely togehter to develop a rich beer based spirit, distilled and then redistilled with botanicals to drive and curve the flavour profile. Joining forces with Luke our neighbour at Sixpence Coffee, the spirit was then used to cold extract dark roasted single origin Columbian coffee and malted barley over a 48-hour period.
Available from 30th April through us and Bright Brewery, only 300 bottles produced.
