  • I can’t drink beer anymore without my body hating me the next day; however, when I could drink beer I loved New Hollands Dragon’s Milk Stout
    • Stout finished in ex bourbon barrels. 
  • They have also done a dragon's milk bourbon and rye, mainly because of the name. But the bourbon and rye are not finished in the dragon’s milk barrels, until now. 


  • New Holland is a Brewing company first. They started that in 1997 and it wasn’t until 2005 that it started to catch onto the distilling world with its Gin and Vodka. 
  • They then saw a benefit to whiskey, especially whiskey finished in beer barrels
    • First to be released was Beer Barrel Bourbon
      • Which was believed to be bourbon finished in dragon’s milk stout, but might have turned out to be one of their ales
    • Second was the Beer Barrel Rye
      • Which was believed to be rye finished in dragon’s milk stout, but might have turned out to be one of their IPA’s
    • The third was their Dragon’s Milk Origins
      • Which is this bottle 
  • My thoughts: 
    • The origin’s line up, which there are two of them now, are made with whiskey they have distilled themselves. 
  • Reality: 
    • They are very tight lipped on this all 
    • Except for this, Origin is distilled on their prohibition-era pot still with extended periods of reflux.
    • They claim this is small batch
      • 100 barrels or less
      • There is only one company I have seen that does smaller batches 
        • 30 barrels
  • The bottle speaks for itself!
