Charbay r5

R5 Hop Flavored Whiskey, Lot 4

Charbay Distillery

Now in its fourth release, Charbay's R5 Lot No. 4 is double-distilled from Bear Republic Brewery's award-winning Racer 5 IPA® beer (7% abv). Marko chose this IPA for its upfront aromatic hops, great dose of bittering hops, high quality two-row barley, balanced and a smooth, clean finish… See if you can taste how each of these is revealed in the whiskey. Marko double-distilled 6000 gallons for 10 days straight in our family's classic 1000 gallon Alambic Charentais Pot Still to create just 590 gallons of whiskey. Aged in French oak for 29 months. Lot No. 4 was distilled in 2013 and bottled in 2015.
