Duvel Distilled 2020 - 10 years old - Limited edition
Since 2006, the Duvel Moortgat brewers have been working with great passion and craftsmanship on a product that combines the best of the Belgian brewing and distillation worlds: Duvel Distilled. Part of the basic brew for regular Duvel beer was set aside to be brewed, distilled and then aged for ten years in oak bourbon and sherry barrels. The result is an exclusive Duvel-based spirit with golden colour tones and floral aromas.
“We are fascinated by different brewing techniques, but also by distillation and aging. We distilled the basic brew for Duvel into a strong alcoholic beverage. Then we filtered the distillate and let it mature for years in oak bourbon and sherry barrels. This fall, we are launching Duvel Distilled, which has been aged in barrels for ten years. Some things are worth the wait!”, says our brewmaster Hedwig Neven.
Duvel Distilled is a pure, transparent spirit with straw yellow and golden hues and an aroma of vanilla, raisins and toffee. The alcohol percentage is 40°. The finish is characterised by a warming mouthfeel. Allowing the spirit to mature in oak bourbon and sherry barrels, gives this liquor a subtle vanilla touch.
Duvel Distilled, 10 years old, is delicious in combination with grilled fish and meat, sauces made with Vin Jaune or Sherry, vegetables such as artichokes and Brussels sprouts, fruit such as mangoes, peaches and bananas. Dark chocolate, crème brûlée, apple pie. Aged, hard cheeses such as Parmesan or mature Groendael.
Duvel Distilled is best served in a tumbler glass with ice cubes or simply neat in a small tulip glass.
