maltmalt Wigle Whiskey + Spoonwood collaboration - label design

April 29, 2017

After months of hard work and patiently waiting- I'm pleased to announce the release of this awesome whiskey I had the honor of designing the label for.

There will be a release party at the Barrelhouse on May 5th at 6pm.

See event info here! I'll be there with some of my paintings in tow. Hope to meet you there!

 

Maltmalt is one of three of Wigle Whiskey's Brewers’ Series releases to start off this summer. As the name suggests, maltmalt is a whiskey made up entirely of malted grains. This spirit is a collaboration with Spoonwood Brewing Company.

Wigle's production began by creating a mash bill based around SMOKE & OATS, Spoonwood’s signature smoked amber lager. Spoonwood’s SMOKE & OATS beer balances the savory and smoky flavors typical of the rauchbier category with subtle sweetness. To make a Wigle-version of SMOKE & OATS, they focused their mash bill around Cherrywood Smoked Malt and Malted Oats. The mash bill is filled out with traditional munich malt and caramel malt. This combination of different grains and styles of malt contributes to the spirit’s most pronounced features: rich smokiness and a profound depth of flavor. After fermentation and distillation, the spirit was aged for 22 months in used cooperage.

Maltmalt, highlights the interplay between savory and sweet. Sipped neat, strong notes of chocolate, toffee and cherry are complemented by a gentle roast flavor.

46% ABV (92 Proof) - 375ml
