Anchor Christmas Spirit, The Spirit of Christmas Past
Anchor Distilling's Christmas Spirit – The Spirit of Christmas Past is a uniquely festive white spirit. This release was pot distilled in 2015 from 2014 Anchor Brewing's Christmas Ale, which features holiday spices. Anchor Brewing has been making distinctive and unique Christmas Ale since 1975, and every year the recipe is different – as is the tree on the label – but the intent with which it is offered remains the same: joy and celebration of the newness of life. It is double-distilled in small, copper pot stills at Anchor Distillery on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. Christmas Spirit offers an uncommonly balanced complexity: malty depth of flavor with hints of pine and pecan, clean and crisp hop character, a subtle Christmassy aroma, and a lingering, velvety-smooth spiciness unlike and other distilled spirit. This is an extremely limited production and available for a limited time exclusively in California. Try it on the rocks or as the inspiration for your own festive creation.
