Using a cold infusion technique, tobacco is added to the oak barrels where the beer is kept. It has a clear, dark golden red color with brownish hues. When poured, it has no head and no gas. Scents of dried fruit and cherries in alcohol, while the sweet aroma of macerated tobacco stands out. The taste is a perfect balance between the malty flavours and the taste of tobacco. Hints of vanilla contrast the typical tangy, almost leathery notes of tobacco. A blend of tastes which gives this beer a bitter, dry finish. This is the 2014 vintage.
The Baladin brewery was originally created in 1996 as a brewpub (production and bar) in Piozzo, Italy – a small village in the Langhe area in the province of Cuneo – by its founder and master brewer Teo Musso.
DID YOU KNOW?
Baladin Brewery made the innovative choice to develop a short production chain, with the commitment to directly produce its ingredients. This led to the first 100% Italian beer made with Italian ingredients, including Italian hops from an experimental cultivation managed by Baladin. It has now become a completely autonomous brewery: from the production of raw ingredients, to their processing, from beer production to the optimization of energy resources and finally distribution.
