      Aged for 14 months in American Oak Gin Barrels

    The name Daisy’s Favorite is a nod to one of The Great Gatsby’s iconic characters, and to the story’s defiant embrace of illegal spirits during the Prohibition era. The idea for this beer began when we secured some unique once-filled gin barrels made of new American oak. We then aged our Helldorado blonde barleywine in these barrels for 14 months to maximize the oak influence. The result is a rarity: a gin barrel-aged beer with all of the floral botanical goodness you might expect, masterfully married with wood-inspired flavors of vanilla, caramel, and baking spice.
