From AB-Inbev brewery
Character by Leffe, beer brewed with whiskey.
A delicate and unique manufacturing process.
Character by Leffe: a unique beer that has matured for four weeks on wood chips macerated in a Scotch whiskey.
To brew Character by Leffe, the master brewers have elaborated an unprecedented recipe. They started from the observation that the flavors of vanilla and clove brought by Leffe’s yeast combine perfectly with the woody aromas. To create this alliance, they plunged oak wood chips into Scotch whiskey, dried them. And finally deposited them in a vat of ale for maturation. After numerous experiments, master brewers discovered that four weeks was the ideal time needed for wood chips to diffuse their flavors in beer. This sophisticated brewing process is one of the reasons why Character by Leffe is so unique and offered in limited edition.
