Milkshake IPA with Scottish barries (5.5%)
Fiordilatte is one of the most classical Italian gelato flavours. The phrase “fior di latte” translates to “flower of milk”, and it refers to gelato in its purest form: just dairy, sugar, and starch, no flavourings, no egg yolks.
Imagine the flavor of the milkiest-milk imaginable, with a floral nuance that’ll make you swear there’s something else to it. With an ingredient list so pared-down, the quality of the ingredients is critical. Katie Parla explained that it might be overlooked by visitors who assume it ordinary, but it’s “like a margherita pizza: it’s the benchmark for quality and if it’s good, then you can trust the other menu items.
We have teamed up with our friends at Shilling brewery in Glasgow to brew this small batch Milkshake IPA with lactose and lots of local Scottish berries.
The lactose gives a creamy mouthful which reminds the velvety Fiordilatte, and it is enriched by a significant addition of local "brambles" (Scottish blackberry), raspberry and passion fruit, to give an intense fruity and tart note.
INSPIRED BY THE ICE CREAM MASTERPIECE BY OMNIPOLLO, THIS BEER IS PART OF A SERIES OF COLLABORATION WITH SOME BRITISH BREWERIES TO PROMOTE THE CONCEPT OF TRADITIONAL ITALIAN GELATO, TRYING TO REPLICATE SOME OF THE CLASSIC GELATO FLAVOURS USING ONLY NATURAL INGREDIENTS IN THE PROCESS (NO CHEMICALS), AND COMBINED WITH THE BEST LOCAL FRUITS AND INGREDIENTS.
