What am I Going to do With a Gun Rack?
Gin Martini Inspired Saison collab with Pilot (Edinburgh)
The Pilot guys like doing crazy beers involving interesting ingredients and they’ve done some great stuff with spices and botanicals in the past so it made sense to build on that idea. We brewed a strong 8% Saison with a huge list of botanicals including juniper, coriander seed, 3 peppers, grains of paradise, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Lemon Zest, and Lemon Juice. The beer went into a single Gin barrel from East London Liquor Company and two Vermouth barrels that were all blended back together with more Lemon Zest, Juniper Berries and Coriander Seed, give a dry, spicy beer with that Gin barrel feel and Vermouth sweetness. This is actually Pilot’s first barrel aged beer so that is very exciting for us to be a part of!
