The "Old Bear" is a tribute to Jakob Baumberger who, in 1857, founded a distillery on his father's farm and also took over a small brewery as well. During the following period the brand logo of his brewery was a bear, the "Old Bear".

The "Old Bear" is brewed and distilled in the same way as the "Old Deer" but with peated barley malt hence the appendix "Smoky". The peating process is the same as for meat or fish: during the drying process of the malt smoke is added to the drying air and the smoke aromas are integrated with the malt and carry on into the finished product.

The "Old Bear" is aged in oak casks previously used for the maturation of French red wine from the Chateauneuf-du-Pape area, a massive dark red wine. The elements of this wine can be detected in the "Old Bear": an intense auburn colour, nice flavours of wood and peat and the typical malty aroma with a slight touch of the taste of wine.

This product may take a couple of days longer to arrive than the wine.
