Real Spirits is a grain-to-glass production. All of our spirits are brewed, fermented, distilled, aged, and packaged on-site at our brewery in Blanco. The spirits start with a foundation of Real Ale beer recipes without the hops. Real Spirits’ Second release of Double Barrel Whiskey starts as the mash of Real Ale’s award winning Scotch Ale, Real Heavy. This complex malt bill includes caramalt, chocolate malt and peated malt, which creates a character in the whiskey that sets it apart from the rest. It is distilled twice in a hand-hammered copper pot still, and then aged in new charred white oak barrels. After 17 months, the whiskey is transferred into a Port barrel from Fredricksburg, TX winery, Grape Creek Vineyards. After 4 months in this port barrel, the whiskey takes on flavors of baking spices, cinnamon, maple syrup, sweet dried fruit, coconut and an underlying hint of smoke and leather.

Visitors to the Real Ale Tap Room in Blanco will be able to purchase up to two bottles of spirits per month (in accordance with state regulation). We will be limiting the purchase of the Double Barrel Whiskey to one bottle per person.  The bottles will not be distributed beyond the brewery, so you’ll have to come visit us to get your hands on them. Classic cocktails will also be available for purchase.
