The Most Unique Whiskey We've Ever Had
In this week's After Hours, we sip on Big Angus Green Malt Whiskey from Coppersea Distillery. Join us!
All About Angus Green Malt Whiskey (from Coppersea):
100% Hudson Valley barley, malted on our malt floor, mashed while still green and without kilning.
THE RAREST EXPRESSION OF AN ANCIENT WHISKY STYLE
Big Angus Green Malt honors our founding Master Distiller, Angus McDonald. We make this unique spirit from 100% un-kilned, sprouting green barley malt fresh off our malt floor. This style of whisky-making evolved in the days when Scotsmen could be killed for illegal distilling, and the need to avoid the malt-drying peat smoke that alerted the Crown’s tax authorities was absolute.
We floor-malt the barley in our own malt house in the traditional manner, hand-raking daily to ensure proper aeration in the sprouting grain. Then, at the moment when we would normally kiln-dry the malt to preserve it for later use as necessary, we mash directly with that green, germinating malt.
As with all Coppersea spirits, the 100% green malted barley is fermented in open-top fermenters and distilled twice in direct-fired alembic stills, imparting a richer flavor, and then barrel at low proof of 105.
