Inspired by the classic cocktail, Lee Hill Volume 17 is brewed and aged to highlight the balance of spicy rye whiskey and herbal notes. Fused with light malts and orange blossom honey, the beer has been aged for nine months in Leopold Brothers Absinthe and Rye Whiskey barrels. Botanical top-notes of licorice, fennel and orange zest are backed by a sturdy rye whiskey spice and touch of honey sweetness on the finish.
“As brewers dedicated to this craft, we’re fortunate and proud to be able to display our creativity through limited release brews,” said Upslope’s head brewer, Sam Scruby. “Like its 16 predecessors, Lee Hill Volume 17 is very unique, and we hope for it to be a cellar keepsake for Upslope fans and craft beer lovers everywhere.”
