We all know someone who’d love this for Christmas!
Original 7 Beverage Co, an award-winning microbrewery based in Cork City, is excited to launch its limited-edition Extra Stout aged in Jameson casks.
Extra Stout is the first in Original 7’s ‘barrel aged series’ and is sure to be on the Christmas list of all discerning craft beer and whiskey connoisseurs this year. This premium Irish stout will be available in limited quantities – only 1,000 bottles will be available to purchase – ensuring that each bottle and pour is a treasured experience for those lucky enough to enjoy it.
Brewed by Head Brewer, Páidí Scully, using Irish ale malt, flaked oats, malted wheat, roast barley, and dark crystal malts; Original 7’s Extra Stout packs a punch. Expect a full-bodied stout (close to 8% ABV) with notes of strong coffee and winter berry coupled with dark chocolate and coffee bean aromas.
And there’s more. Thanks to their friends in Jameson Distillery Cork, this barrel-aged stout was matured for six months in six ex-bourbon Jameson whiskey casks, adding subtle undertones of caramel, vanilla, nuttiness and a little spice.
Shane Long, Founding Director, Original 7 explains why their Extra Stout is a cut above the rest;
“After 25 years in the brewery and pub trade and as the first beer partner to Jameson 11 years ago, it is a full circle moment to be back using Jameson casks to produce Original 7 Extra Stout.
“The combination of our brewing process and the flavours that Jameson brings to this brew make it truly special. It is, without doubt, the best extra stout I have ever tasted. I would like to thank Jameson for their support and Taste4Success Skillnet for their help and support in funding the experts to help us develop and promote our Original 7 brand”.
Whether shared amongst friends, savoured in solitude, or paired with a hearty meal, Original 7’s Extra Stout invites you to experience the fusion of two Irish legacies. It’s not just a beverage; it’s a celebration of heritage and brewing craftsmanship that’s meant to be cherished.
Retailing at €29 a bottle, this is a special gift for someone who really appreciates exceptional craft beer. Extra Stout comes in a traditional dark brown stout bottle with a branded label front and back and a swing stopper cap. The bottle is presented in a premium branded presentation box in dark wine colours with a design that reflects the grains of wood on the casks along with the established Original 7 branding. Original 7’s Extra Stout is available to buy now on their website www.original7.ie and in limited Cork City premises including the Franciscan Well Brewpub and Bradley’s off licence.
