Paloma New Zealand Barrel-Aged Barleywine is a deep amber strong ale that was aged for more than 10 months in whisky casks that held a very special NZ single malt whisky. The resulting beer is rich, nutty, and smooth with notes of dried fruits, raisins, Christmas cake, and tawny port.
These beers will age gracefully for many years, but are fabulous right now. Do not serve cold! Treat them like you would a port or red wine and serve in an elegant glass. The New Zealand Kererū on the labels are giant fruit doves and the name ‘Paloma’ means ‘dove’. Only 1008 bottles were produced for the 2018 edition and each bottle is hand-numbered.
