2012 Anchor Christmas Spirit White Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1146592

K&L was the first store to have this in stock and we took as much as we can get of it! Anchor Steam releases a Christmas Ale every year and it's always one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. I've been drinking this beer with my dad every Xmas since I was 21. Last year Anchor had a few hundred bottles left over that they decided to distill secretly into a very, very, very small batch of bierschnapps, or white whiskey - depending on which title sounds more appealing to you. I got the chance to taste it this morning and, while I don't often advocate on behalf of white dog, this tastes very much like the beer itself. That clove, nutmeg, and foresty goodness are all there within the spirit itself. Now please note: this isn't going to go down as the best whiskey of the year. It's just a super-limited, fun experiment from a Bay Area legend. An iconic beer distilled into something fun for fans of the brand. LIKE ME! Anchor made around 600 bottles: TOTAL. We're getting a large chunk of that, but that's still not very much! (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

This is absolutely one of the finest white spirits you'll find anywhere. Forget about the christmas part, we should all be drinking this all night every night! What i really recommend here is using it as the base for a barrel aged whiskey cocktail. I guarantee it will taste better than if you start with nearly any $30 bourbon on the shelf. All the herbal spice and rich grain practically screams out for a swizle stick and a novelty 2 liter barrel! Let it soak up some oak, bitters, and vermouth -unleash the christmas spirit.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
