All Amongst the Barley Starlaw BA – ROW/Odyssey
This is a beer/cider hybrid made by North Herefordshire friends Ross-On-Wye Cider and Odyssey Brewing.
Odyssey produced a simple pale wort with aged hops from a local hop farm and fermented it with English Ale Yeast. The result was transferred to Ross on Wye’s freshly emptied cider barrels to undergo secondary fermentation on the cider lees before being lightly bottle conditioned.
The end result is a unique meeting point of brewery, cidery and barrel, capturing the spirit of both producers and truly expressing their shared home.
There are three different versions, each one from a different distillery, the only slight difference is the Laphroaig version has around 25% more cider.
*Starlaw Whisky – La Martiniquaise designed Starlaw distillery to produce a light, easy-drinking whisky that not only matched the style of its Label 5 blend but could also be easily traded for malt whisky from other distilleries. The distillery also has the ability to produce a neutral grain spirit. The column stills were designed to show no high supporting steelwork, which resulted in significant works to ensure they are supported at the foundation.
