Copper & Kings "Cr&ftwerk" Oskar Blues IPA-Aged Brandy (750ml)

SKU #1246517

We've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Copper & Kings's "Cr&ftwerk" project since we first tasted the brandies from barrel at the Louisville distillery last Fall. While craft whisky producers have spent years trying to best capture the flavor of distilled beer into an interesting and sippable spirit, we think C&K may have the better idea: aging brandy, rather than whisky, in the used barrels from some of America's most iconic breweries. The finished result actually captures more of the that beery essence than the actual distillates we've tasted since the idea first took hold. Bottled at 55.5%, the Oskar Blues edition takes C&K brandy and finshes it in former Imperial IPA barrels. The fresh hops and almost citric IPA flavors explodes on the palate, and the richness from the weight of the beer fills out the middle. The brandy flavors are so integrated they're almost unnoticeable. Serious fans of IPA won't ever want to be without a bottle of this.

This Oskar Blues IPA is the most obviously influenced by its beer barrel of the four bottlings. Aged in a barrel that once contained a hoppy IPA, fruity and yeasty aromatics burst form the glass. The palate is expressive with notes of orange, grapefruit, fresh hops and white flowers. This is the perfect brandy for the California beer drinker.

This is an inviting and interesting brandy. We now see a lot of craft beers that have been aged in used spirit barrels and this is a variation on the theme with a spirit aged in a barrel that had previously had beer. The Oskar Blues has beautiful aromas that are fruity and floral. In the mouth, it is soft and round with a long finish. Certainly worth a try for brandy fans.

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.
