New Holland Hatter Royale Whiskey
A fermented wash of 100% barley is twice distilled to 150 proof. Infused with Centennial hops at 85 proof. Sweetened with 3% cane sugar. Filtered through 3 particulate filters and bottled at 80 proof.
The vivacious spirit features a grain-centric body framed by citrus-laden hop character in the nose and finish.
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.
NOSE: The aroma is skunky and hot: earthy and full of white whiskey character, big grain notes like those of new make spirit.
PALATE: On the palate, things are a bit different. The hops come across as surprisingly sweet — much like you get with a sweeter-style, light-bodied beer.
FINISH: The finish is closer to honey than sugar, with an odd and difficult-to-peg edge to it.
