Product Description

Brewmaster John Maier begins by brewing Rogues platinum award-winning Chipotle Ale. We distill the ale in small batches using Rogues traditional copper pot still, then individually hand-bottle the finished spirit. Chipotle Spirit offers a true taste of the ingredients used to create both the spirit and beer. It is perfect for Cinco de Mayo, beer cocktails or a Bloody Mary. TASTING NOTES: Chipotle Spirit has a sweet, citrus aroma with subtle spice. Light-bodied, the unaltered clear spirit has a lush malt sweetness with lingering flavors of smoked jalapeno from the chipotles used to brew Chipotle Ale. 7 INGREDIENTS: 2-Row & C40 Malts; Crystal & Horizon Hops; Chipotle Peppers; Free Range Coastal Water & Pacman Yeast. Proof: 80

Varietal: Neutral Spirits

Region: Oregon

Region Description:

This state’s strict wine laws demand that variety wines must contain at least 90% of the named grape (except for Cabernet Sauvignon). The region’s cool climate comes from its proximity to the Pacific and its primary grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The latter wine is usually medium bodied, with aromas reminiscent of pears and apples and a surprising depth and complexity. Oregon Pinot Gris is a great food wine, and works especially well with seafood and salmon. Pinot Noir is a more expensive wine here, but that is because it can be such a difficult grape to grow that yields are inevitably low. The best Oregon Pinot Noirs are balanced, fruity and full.
