A Tale of Gins and Dwarfen Beer

Clotted Cream & Chocolate Orange Gins

What could be more Christmassy than finding a Terry’s Chocolate Orange nestled in the toe of your stocking? A stiff drink – that’s what.  And to combine the two the good folks at That Boutique-y Gin Company have teamed up with ace Scottish Gin producer McQueen to bring us this somewhat bonkers but absolutely brilliant seasonal tipple.

 The Wrecking Coast Distillery is pretty much the epitome of small batch, craft distilling. One of their stills is made by a Dutch chap by the name of Odin (no, really, I’m not making this up) while their other, reserved for the distillation of the clotted cream, is made of hand-blown glass. Each batch in numbered by hand with the alcoholic strength also being added by hand as it varies slightly from batch to batch as the emphasis is firmly on quality rather than robotic precision. Smooth, almost velvety, a pretty unique addition to the gin canon.

Never let it be said that we at Connolly’s don’t listen. Responding to the regular litany of complaints that our range of beers lack a certain dwarfishness dwarveness, sod it... that there aren’t enough beers centred around dwarfs (dwarves?) we have responded in the only way possible. Now in stock are three fabulous beers from Fownes Brewery, based in the Black Country.  We have:

Storyteller – 4.4% Honey and Ginger Ale “Who celebrates the heroes? Who loudly sings their praise? Who tells the tales of battles, of dark and brighter days?”

King Korvak’s Saga – 5.4% Porter “A prince, a prophecy and a shadow from the East. Hear ye now the tale of poor King Korvak…”

Visions of Heresy – 5.7% Smoked Rye IPA “The prophecies of Korvak’s youth are being fulfilled, but who will betray him?”

They have also given us some rather nice glasses which can be yours (whilst stocks last) if you choose all 3 beers....
