In a year full of change, LeVeL33 continues to scale new peaks. The world’s highest urban microbrewery presents–its very first distilled spirit.
Working together with Brass Lion Distillery, the first fully-fledged micro-distillery in Singapore, LeVeL33 is proud and privileged to serve the exclusive LeVeL33 Hopped Dry Gin by Brass Lion. This is the microbrewery’s inaugural venture into the brand new world of distillations.
LeVeL33’s partner of choice is therefore particularly important and was guided by their founding ethos of craftsmanship and artistry, and of unwavering generosity and hospitality. LeVeL33’s founder and Managing Director, Dr Martin Bém, chose to reach out to the artisanal BrassLionDistillery.
Though a young brand, Brass Lion Distillery is demonstrably committed to the same ethos of craftsmanship and hospitality. Consider its on-site herb garden from which herbs are specifically grown for their spirits, its top-of-the-line copper still, as well as the dedicated research lab and its elegant, colonial-style tasting room.
Several attempts were made. Together with Martin and LeVeL33’s Resident Brewmaster Gabriel Garcia, the Brass Lion team explored distilling and infusing beers in different concentrations. The resulting distillates were voluptuous with coffee and chocolate notes, rich and beautiful – but not quite right with the Brass LionSingaporeDry Gin.
It was the hops, those cone-like flowers so essential to a balanced beer, that blew the team away. Though several varieties were tried, it was Citra, a very particular type of hops that has only been available for about a decade, that proved a winning choice. Rich in hop oils, this varietal has pronounced citrus notes reminiscent of grapefruit, lime and orange in addition to the bitter florals that all hopspossess.
The result? A glorious LeVeL33 Hopped Dry Gin – refreshing, complex with a citrusy hoppy flavour that layers deeper nuances onto an already memorable spirit.
The LeVeL33 Hopped Gin is available exclusively in LeVeL33 from 4 October.
