Fraser’s Folly Brandy Cask (6 bottles)
Fraser’s Folly Brewing Company is owned by, and brewed at the Black Oystercatcher Wines – from the cool tip of Africa.
STYLE – BRANDY CASK FINISHED ALE
I was inspired by the beer created by Scottish craft brewery Innis & Gunn – well-known for barrel-ageing their beer. In our case, the beer sat in the brandy barrels for more than a year. The 2019 beer has an ABV (alcohol by volume) of 15%.
The brandy barrels have their own great story. They were used by The Drift’s Bruce Jack and Dirk at the Black Oystercatcher to make a brandy from some excess Cab they had one harvest.
“LAYERS OF RAISIN AND OTHER DRIED FRUIT, AND OF COURSE SOME BIG UPFRONT BRANDY AROMA AND LOTS OF CHRISTMAS SPICE AROMA FROM THE CASKS. THE FLAVOURS YOU’RE LIKELY TO GET ON THE PALATE INCLUDE SALTED CARAMEL, DATES AND GINGERBREAD. AS WELL AS A FOLLOW THROUGH WITH THE SHERRY NOTES AND SOME ALCOHOLIC HEAT.“
