Avon Beer Barrel Old Fashioned

Collaboration – The action of working with someone to create something even better than we can do ourselves.

Our someone is Avon Brewing Company. Our newest beer barrel finish, Winter Spice Ale Barrel, is our second collaboration with our friends over at Avon Brewing. Together we chose the Avon Christmas MiraCLE Ale Barrel to capture the hints of the caramel malts, honey sweetness, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh ginger left by the beer to make a spicy but mellow bourbon.A new beer barrel finish means another cocktail recipe! We decided to take the classic old-fashioned and put a little CLE twist on it.
