Introducing Charbay R5 Hop Whiskey Lot 5, a captivating expression from Charbay Distillery that pushes the boundaries of traditional whiskey-making. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this whiskey begins with a base of carefully selected malted barley, distilled to perfection using Charbay's innovative techniques. What sets Lot 5 apart is the infusion of hops during distillation, imparting a distinctively hoppy character to the spirit.

Aging in charred oak barrels adds layers of complexity, allowing the whiskey to develop rich flavors of caramel, vanilla, and toasted oak while retaining the bright, floral essence of the hops. The result is a harmonious balance of malt sweetness and hoppy bitterness, with a smooth and velvety texture that lingers on the palate.

Charbay R5 Hop Whiskey Lot 5 is a true testament to the artistry and innovation of Charbay Distillery, offering whiskey enthusiasts a unique and unforgettable tasting experience. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation for craft cocktails, and savor the bold flavors and aromatic complexity with every sip.
