White Christmas - The Spirit of Christmas Past
White Christmas is a white spirit distilled from the 2012 Anchor Brewing Co. Christmas Ale. Production is extremely limited and distribution is restricted to California during the 2013 holiday season. The 90 proof spirit is double-distilled in a copper still at Anchor's distillery on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. White Christmas aims to capture the essence of the Christmas Ale, of which the malts, hops and spices are a well-guarded secret.
Nose: Round and soft aroma with an inviting complexity. Bright holiday spices, clove, orange peel, poached apple.
Palate: Mellow on the front palate, with structure and intensity coming to life on the finish, which warms and lingers for a long time with notes of spiced apple, baking spices and dried fruit.
