Brother Soigne: Gin Barrel-Aged
Farmstead® Ale Brewed with Lime and Blood Orange and Aged in Gin Barrels
What now seems like ages ago, Bim Lafontaine formerly of Dieu du Ciel, traveled from Japan to brew with us the inaugural batch of Brother Soigné, a collaboration that we continue to produce in the spirit of that visit. A tart, refreshing ale brewed with lime, hibiscus and blood orange in a mixed fermentation. A small portion of a subsequent batch was aged in Caledonia Spirits gin barrels for nearly a year and then allowed an extended bottle conditioning.
