FLAVOUR The silky sweetness of malt, mild acidity



In creating distilled lager, Valmiermuiža’s landlord was inspired by the world famous Calvados that is made from Normandy cider. To fulfil this vision, our brewery ordered a special beer kiln in Germany from globally-renowned small kiln and distillation equipment specialist, Arnold Holstein. At the brewery, the kiln is positioned alongside the beer boiling tanks.



Brewing distilled lager requires a lot of time, care and patience, because just 50 ml of burned beer can be obtained from 500 ml of beer. In the kiln, the beer is heated to a temperature of over 75 °C. It is a slow process – in three hours, from 150 litres of beer, we obtain just seven litres of distilled larger with a strength of ABV 80%. Later on, we mix this with water from Valmiermuiža’s artesian well so that the strength “drops” to 42 %. Before it is poured into a bottle, distilled lager is frozen to a temperature of —4 °C, thus making it even purer.



You’ll appreciate it best it after a hearty meal as a final dot over the letter i or as a digestif. Serve in Valmiermuiža’s small stemmed tulip shaped glass at 140C. Just like a fine wine, distilled lager ages well. Therefore, we recommend saving it for special festive meals or taking it with you to distant lands as a gift from home.
