Danish brewers Mikkeller have been playing around with spirits for a while now and their ‘Black’ series brings together the best of both worlds.
Teaming with the Braunstein Distillery, they distilled the Mikkeller Black – their famous 17.5% imperial stout. The small batch runs have been filled into three different cast types (bourbon, oloroso sherry and rum).
The rum cask helps bring out the deep sweetness and fruit in the spirit.
These have been sourced and imported by The Oak Barrel so we can drink this alongside the beers we’ve been enjoying for so long.
In their own words:
“The Mikkeller Black Spirit is as very fruity clean spirit, where the hoppiness and the crisp taste of dark malts are what meets your mouth, but it is still a rough spirit – therefore we decided to barrel age it!
We have taken rum barrels from the former Danish colony – Sankt Croix – with these we have added black magic to the black spirit.
The sweetness from the rum has taken the spirit to a new level. It is now round and smooth in the mouth – but still its own with the character of fruitiness from the Black Spirit.”
