Unique Aspect

First time round the beer was based around a beautiful Marc de Bourgonge barrel that was 25 years in the soaking. This blend has seen a mixture of Burgundy Wine barrels and Somerset Cider Brandy barrels with the latter being the focus of the blend. Enhancing all the toffee and caramel malt favours, the Cider Brandy barrels lend hints of brandy heat with smooth, rounded apple notes.

Raconteur suitably means ‘the story teller’ and with its extended time in exile it has developed to become one serious barrel-aged barley-wine!

Food Pairings

Big and sweet can match the intensity and compliment some serious deserts. Think sticky toffee pudding and you’re not far of the impact that Raconteur 3yr has by itself.The accentuated malt character also plays well with red meats, particularly medium-rare steak with a heavy char. The maillard reaction flavours are present in both presenting a complimentary pairing.
