Redmond, WA - This one just arrived in our inbox and we had to let you know that Black Raven is releasing another limited edition beauty. Splinters Bourbon Barrel Aged Scotch, is nothing less than the Second Sight Scotch, aged in bourbon barrels. Although this brewery has only been around for just a hair shy of a year, they have been winning awards, both by the people and their peers.
So get in the car, take the bus, or find a friend, and get down to the pub when they open, to sample another of their limited edition beers.
As always no kegs or growlers of their limited beers (including this one) will be allowed but you shouldn't wait too long to try this beer.

Ravens have long been held in high esteem by brewers, particularly in the British Isles. A famous London brewery once had a tame “mascot” raven named “Joey” that was thought to bring the brewery good luck. Many years ago while home brewing, our brewer/owner came across an old photo in an online stock photo database entitled “Brewer with tame raven”. That photo was the inspiration for continuing the mystical brewery–raven connection, hence the Black Raven Brewing Company. This photo is now used on the home page of the Black Raven Brewing Company website.
Ravens are common birds in the North Cascade mountain range of western Washington. Black Raven Brewing Company is located in the foothills of the North Cascade mountain range. It is important for us to be a local brewery that puts focus on sourcing Washington grown and produced ingredients. As such, we felt that our brewery name and image should be tied to our state.
