Daisen G Craft Beers

Each year, around Christmas I’ve managed to collect enough credit card points to cash them in for something from their (not particularly extensive catalogue).
Usually I just have enough for a box of 24 Asahi, but this year seems I’d spent more than usual and managed to get enough points for these great Japanese Craft beers from Daisen G!

The Indiegogo campaign can be found here if you want to find out more about the WayTap.

Nevertheless, one cannot directly distil cereal, fruit or sugar cane in a still. It must be extracted first and the sugars contained in the cereal grains or in the fruits converted into alcohol using yeast: Fermentation is indeed the pivot of this complex process.

To simplify, we can say that whiskey is water spirits fermented cereal, just like cognac is a brandy wine spirits or calvados, water spirits cider. The whiskey ingredients are apparently simple: grain, water and yeast, all going in different tanks and then filtered into stills before aging in oak barrels.
