NEW LONEWOLF SMALL BATCH SPIRITS
Our fearless LoneWolf team are constantly scouring the landscape for the new and expanding the parameters of the possible. Relentless in our art; curious in our science. The latest untamed product of this curiosity are two small batch releases that push the boundaries whilst leaving their own unique mark. A Gunpowder Gin and a barrel-aged Single Malt Vodka.
Both are live online in the BrewDog shop right now.
LoneWolf Gunpowder Gin
First up, our LoneWolf team have lit the fuse on a 57% ABV juniper cannon, firing a blast of Oriental spice. LoneWolf Gunpowder Gin sees the intensity of its spirited stablemate taken to new heights by the addition of Szechuan and black peppercorns, bitter orange and star anise. Subvert the Status Quo with the brand new Gin from LoneWolf as it declares primeval warfare on the bland, the characterless and the insipid. Light the touchpaper and stand back.
As a Gin & Tonic, LoneWolf Gunpowder Gin is best served with a slice of orange peel, and some freshly-ground black peppercorn. To truly unleash the flavour cavalry however, this creation calls for a Martini as its ally. Add a dash of bold, dry white vermouth. Wet shake over ice and watch the essential oils from the dialled up citrus and juniper form a smokescreen. Strain and serve with a twist of orange peel and a grind of black pepper.
Whiskey Single Malt Barrel-Aged Vodka
The other recent offspring from LoneWolf is also set to challenge the norm – but in an entirely different manner. Our team has created a single-minded vodka with Single Malt character. Held captive in charred virgin American oak for eleven months, this 100% malt barley Vodka delivers a smoothness that belies the bite to follow. It exists in a place few Vodkas dare venture – taking on the personality of whiskey for the best of both worlds.
The Vodka enters the cask unfiltered, and the char of the barrel clarifies it naturally. Over the months it becomes smooth; the oak delivering a bourbon-like warmth of vanilla and coconut. Our pure bloodline Whiskey Single Malt Vodka is a collision of distilling cultures. Best served neat over ice for maximum bite or for a longer drink, add a dash of ginger beer and serve with a squeeze of lime over ice. This is Vodka with a singular vision – to be a whiskey.
Both of these small-batch LoneWolf spirits are available now in the BrewDog online shop and as limited-edition bottle sales from our UK BrewDog Bars. You can also now buy LoneWolf Gin, Vodka and canned G&Ts in selected Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s stores throughout the UK. Check here for more details and a full store listing!
