Pen Hir Sapphire 75cl 9.5°
The Pen Hir Sapphire is a type of beer with high fermentation characterised by a high degree of alcohol allowing a long storage in cellars.
The Pen Hir Sapphire has aged in oak barrels for more than 5 months. Those barrels have previously contained great wines of Bordeaux. According to tradition, no yeast has been added to the preparation.
This beer, of the English type ale, develops only very few bubbles, and offers a very fruity bouquet evoking the wine of Madeira. In the mouth, a sweetness of peach and stewed fruits asserts itself, raised with a touch of sour cherry.
|Brewery||Brasserie du Bout du Monde|
From the sea to the land… La Brasserie du Bout du Monde (Land’s End Brewery) was born in Brittany, 2013, after three years of thinking, research and studies, as “quality and taste flourish with time, and such is the spirit of our brewery”, entrepreneur O. Lallemand says, placing quality at the heart of his concerns.
The brewery uses full-bodied mashing schedules (a steady single temperature for the mashing): the mashing process consists of soaking the crushed malt to extract starch. The brewery is unusually located in a former military tunnel where the beers are refined at least two weeks at a temperature of 12 to 14°C.
This underground tunnel served as a warehouse for NATO’s ammunition. It was then used by the Ministry of Defense and was bought by the municipality communities in 2009.
