VOTE FOR CANADA'S NEXT GREAT BEER FLAVOUR
Kith & Kin
Kith & Kin is Scots for ‘friends & family’ which perfectly captures the spirit of our newest collaboration with Ireland’s Teeling Whiskey.
One of our favourite distillers, the Teeling family are renowned for their passion for quality, authenticity and craft. In 1782 Walter Teeling set up a craft distillery in Marrowbone Lane, launching a 230 year tradition in the family, a legacy which has been passed down to the latest generation. The new distillery is only a stone’s throw away in the Newmarket area of the Liberties which is renowned for its long history of brewing and distilling.
In short, we knew we were working with a pioneer in their craft and we were very excited about what we could create.
Our Founder and Master Brewer, Dougal, embarked on a lively Scots- Irish debate and finally we settled on a jet black Innis & Gunn stout which would be matured in barrels formerly used to mature Teeling’s flagship Small Batch Whiskey.
“We’ve always held a great deal of admiration for Teeling’s ethos of quality and innovation. Like us, they are uncompromising when it comes to flavour and I was intrigued to see what we could create together. When we first tasted the stout with its rich notes of chocolate and coconut it was clear we were on to a winner”.
This jet black 5.8% ABV stout was created at our brewery in Inveralmond, Scotland and the team developed the brew to specifically complement the flavours drawn out from the Irish whiskey barrels. Unlike the toasted oak characteristics from Scotch whisky barrels, Irish whiskey barrels deliver a much lighter and sweeter flavour. The beer is rich and full, with a delicious chocolate and roast coffee aroma and drinkers will discover coconut and vanilla flavours accompanied with warming spicy notes finished with a smooth, lingering finish. Kith & Kin also pairs perfectly with venison stew or for those with a sweet tooth try it with sticky toffee pudding – you won’t be disappointed!
To round off our collaboration we are returning the barrels back to Ireland and Teeling will be creating their very own stout finished whiskey – we can’t wait!
