Swedish microbrewery PangPang and Tullamore D.E.W. launch a sour beer matured on whiskey cask
Swedish microbrewery PangPang Brewery and the Irish whiskey producer Tullamore D.E.W. now launch PangPang Tully. The beer, a Pineapple Sour Ale, is an interpretation of Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish and lies on whiskey casks to mature. A perfect blend of “Irish heart, Caribbean sun and Hökarängen soul”.
As a result of an exclusive collaboration between the PangPang Brewery and Tullamore D.E.W., the PangPang Pineapple Sour Ale, a sour beer or kettle sour with inspiration from Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is now launched. The beer is filled with Caribbean flavors such as pineapple, mango, and rum and lies on rum barrels from Tullamore D.E.W. XO, in good company of vanilla bean and coconut. A kettle sour is a type of sour beer where you sour the wort with the help of lactic acid bacteria.
PangPang Brewery specializes in handmade IPA, stout, and sour beer and is Stockholm’s very first microbrewery. The Tullamore D.E.W. distillery located in Ireland and is the world’s second-largest whiskey within its category.
– I was given the task to interpret and translate Tullamore D.E.W. XO into a beer, and the result is PangPang Tully. A kettle sour of which I have picked up and exaggerated the Caribbean flavors of pineapple, vanilla, and rum. To give it another dimension, I’ve also added coconut and mango, says Fredrik Tunedal, founder and brew master at PangPang Brewery.
PangPang Tully is Tullamore D.E.W. and PangPang’s second collaboration and a stand-alone sequel to the successful D.E.W. & A Brew from 2017. At that time, founder and brew master Fredrik Tunedal, visited the distillery in Ireland and for the first time in the history of Tullamore D.E.W., he was allowed to bring back some of the yeast culture used in the manufacture the whiskey. The yeast culture was then used to brew a Nitrogen Red Ale. However, the new collaboration is something entirely different, yet again a small piece of the distillery has left Ireland, this time in the form of used rum barrels in which PangPang Tully has matured.
– For several years, Tullamore produced both beer and whiskey under one roof. As a triple distilled whiskey, we believe that opinions, ideas, and thoughts improve when they are shared and blended. Because of this, it feels extra exciting and fun to continue working with the strong connection between beer and whiskey together with one of Sweden’s most interesting and experimental breweries. The result is an excellent beer with “Irish heart, Caribbean sun, and Hökarängen soul,” says Daniel Andersson, Senior Brand Manager at Nigab.
