About Empirical Helena (375mL)

Helena is the basis for many of their quirkier creations. Named after the song by Misfits, it's crafted with pearled barley that is steamed in an old butter churner. It is then combined with koji-kin spores, the mold that is a key ingredient in sake and miso. The barley-koji is left to ferment in a room with controlled temperature and humidity, then brewed together with pilsner malt and barley into a beer. After the beer ferments with the help of Belgian saison yeast. Even the distillation process is unusual, as they have opted for vacuum distillation, preserving the flavors and aromas in the finished 80-proof spirit that has rich sweet, umami, and floral notes.
