Rum Barrel Aged Barley Wine
Jamaica 2000 is a unique barley wine aged in rum barrels for 21 months. One of four limited edition barley wines, each with its own distinct character. A collaboration between Dugges and Svenska Eldvatten.
This beer, as its three siblings, is the result of a happy accident. In 2013 we we're at a beverage festival. Talking to everyone, as you do, we started talking to the guys at Svenska Eldvatten. They we're very excited about their latest project. They'd gotten hold of a few single barrel rum barrels and had just bottled the content. Amazing West Indies rum. The lightbulb over our heads lit and we asked them what they we're going to to with the barrels. Because, we wanted to fill them with beer! We wanted to fill the barrels with something that could really carry the different rum characters so the choice to fill them with a potent English barley wine was easy. The barrel Jamaica 2000 has been lying on used to contain rum distilled at Hampden Distillery, Jamaica in September of 2000. The barrel had the number #4.
