Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a refined whisky distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel beer. Originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491, this pleasant golden blond beer is preferred by all who love heavier, somewhat seasoned, full-bodied, and refreshing beer.
A first for Belgium are the hand hammered, copper pot stills, in which the pure mash is distilled. The result is a pure and clear distillate. The ensuing aging in First Fill Bourbon casks followed by a further aging in ‘Anker’ casks (oak casks reworked by the cooper according to Het Anker’s own specifications) results in a refined whisky with a rich and balanced taste. The subtle fruit aromas are delightfully enhanced by hints of wood and vanilla.
