Off Trail – Azeotrope

Azeotrope is a crossover brand between beer and spirits, utilizing the know-how of fermentation and barrel aging cultivated through beer brewing to create innovative spirits and liqueurs.
Malt-derived distilled spirits
Carefully distilled in a traditional pot still (single distiller) to retain the malt flavors of the raw materials. Enjoy a unique taste that is distinctly different from London Dry Gin.
Aging in wooden barrels
Using the knowledge of barrel aging refined through our Off Trail beer-making, we adopted wooden barrel aging, which can also be used for making grain-based spirits such as whiskey and jenever.
Aroma component extraction technology cultivated through beer production
Using beer ingredients such as hops and coriander as botanicals.
By maximizing the aromatic ingredients, mainly monoterpene alcohol, we took on the challenge of creating a new style with a woody, cool taste.

#2 【New Pot Blended】Malt Gin
Blends two types of gin, a base gin made from malt stock brewed specifically for spirits and distilled twice in our own pot stills, as well as spirits distilled from KAGUA, one of our regular beers made with sansho and yuzu.

The botanicals include juniper berries, coriander, Nelson Sauvin hops, and plenty of yuzu. The blend is created with a blend ratio that provides the perfect balance of malt and botanical flavors.

Different from London Dry Gin, this is a flavor-oriented spirit where you can enjoy the malt flavors derived from the ingredients.

#1 【New Pot】Beer Distilled Gin
This project utilized a large amount of beer for commercial shipment that had no place to go due to the declared state of emergency caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020. The beer was distilled in a pot still at a contract distillery and turned into a craft gin.

While retaining the malt and hop flavors of the original beer, the cool aroma mixture of juniper berries and yuzu, which were added as botanicals, combine to create a craft gin that is as fragrant as a fine fragrance.

About Azeotrope
Azeotrope is derived from azeotropic mixture. The word symbolizes the crossover between spirits and beer brewing, which is the core domain of Far Yeast Brewing.
Focusing on spirits that are malt-derived and barrel-aged (e.g., jenever), we aim to put a new spin on distilled spirits-making by utilizing the fermentation and barrel-aging know-how that we have cultivated through our beer brewing.
