Aged for 10 months in Spirit Hound barrels that clinched the title of Whisky Of The Year in 2022 at the London International Spirits Competition, Telluride Saint Barley – The Lover 1s a MASSIVE 13.2% ABV Barleywine that marries layers of decadence with notes of Caramel and Toffee and subtle undertones of Dark Cherry, Vanilla, as well as a touch of Dark Chocolate.

“Crafting ‘Saint Barley – The Lover Barleywine’ has been a highly-anticipated and exciting journey with old and new friends,” explains Chris Fish, Chief Brewing Officer and Co-Founder of Telluride Brewing Co. “This is one of the best barrel-aged beers I’ve ever had the pleasure of crafting. What makes it so special? Aging it for a solid 10 months in the absolute best Straight Whisky Barrels you can find on the planet!”
