New Holland Beer Barrel Bourbon
Established in 1997, NHBC has grown from a scrappy two-man start-up to a thriving regional microbrewery, recognized for its creativity and artistry. In 2005, NHBC excitedly announced the launch of New Holland Artisan Spirits, the brewery’s line of spirits produced in the company’s new micro distillery. Beer Barrel Bourbon is first aged in new American oak barrels for several years, before a three month beer-y slumber. The beer-barrel aging lends biscuity notes and a smooth malt character to the robust whiskey tones of toffee and caramel.
A branch of New Holland Brewing Company, New Holland Artisan Spirits was founded in 2006 with the mission of creating small-batch, carefully crafted distilled spirits. Their distilling and aging methods are based on the techniques and philosophies developed by New Holland’s experience as craft brewers. From classic London dry gins to innovative beer-inspired whiskies, New Holland’s spirits represent the finest traditions of craft distilling.
